Coming just a few days after the President of the Republic laid the guidelines for the new year with his end of year message, Governor Lele explained that the guidelines calls on them “first of all to mobilise all the stakeholders to reinforce the coming back to normalcy in the North West region in the social, economic, political and security domains. We have met with all the stakeholders here and they have committed themselves to be up to the expectation of not only the Head of State, the government but also to the expectation of the population of the North West region who are anxiously expecting the normalcy to come back in the region.”
After dishing out recommendations from the recent Governors’ Conference to his close collaborators, the Governor instructed administrative authorities, regional head of services to neglect nothing in their various fields of action. “To re-mobilize the population, to re-mobilize other stakeholders under their supervision to get themselves involved in that process of coming back to normalcy.” Governor Lele said.
The Regional Coordination and Security meetings also gave an opportunity for the regional administrative head to congratulate his collaborators who were exceptionally outstanding in 2017 and to advice those who were “reluctant to achieve well’, and later to recommend to his immediate authorities actions to be taken against such persons.
“I will like therefore to promise to the population of the North West that this year everything will be put in place at our level to make sure that the elections that are anxiously expected by the political figures of the region are organized hitch free.” The Governor noted adding that “we cannot succeed in that endeavor without the collaboration of the North West population, without the involvement of our collaborators who have already committed themselves to do so and we are now expecting that 2018 will be a better year in the NWR.”
The meetings came at the time the Mayor of Nkambe Ngabir Paul says the economy of his council area has been wrecked by the current socio-economic and political crisis facing the region with tax collection standing as a major challenge as denizens out rightly refused to pay. He however remains positive that if the road to Nkambe is tarred, decentralization made effective and the 1986 constitution effectively implemented, not only will the people of Nkambe be happy but also a possible solution to the crisis.
Traders at the Nkambe main market say they can’t pay taxes because business is bad thus making many people to turn to their farms.
The Ghosts Towns and School boycotts which the Governor and the Mayor have castigated calling for regular economic activities and schooling, the traders say have crippled them but for fear they will not  lock their doors. The Governor congratulated the people of Nkambe for being very responsible at the peak of the crisis at the time many saw destruction as the way to go.
