NEWS and EVENTS OF THE KUMBO COUNCIL:
Rehabilitation of Roads

The Ntonghi N11-Sakir-Romnkong-Kiyan Roads have been rehabilitation thanks to the allocation of 13,880,000 (thirteen million eight hundred and eighty thousand) francs CFA, by the Ministry of Public Works, in the BIP Credits for 2014 fiscal year. The road works were executed through Direct Labour by Kumbo Council following authorization by the Minister of Public Contracts. This authorization has been made possible thanks to the availability of heavy road equipment (frontend loader, grader, compactor, water tank, tippers) and the adequate man power in Kumbo Council.

Rehabilitation works consisted of rubble cuts in place, road grading/compaction, trees felling, laying of metallic culverts, re-gravelling (fill) of the carriage layer. However, some extra road works were done by the Council on the Sakir-Kikoo and Waingoilum-Romkong roads, to include grading, compaction, trees felling and re-gravelling (fill) of the carriage layer.

It is worth mentioning that the rehabilitation of the aforementioned roads is a great relief to the populations concerned as that has eased movements especially goods from the farm to markets.

 
KC adopts 2014 budget

Councillors of the Kumbo Council in Bui Division of the Northwest Region adopted 693,500,095 FCFA as budget for the 2014 financial year. This was during the first council session held in the Kumbo Council Banquet Hall on January 29, 2014 after the September 30, 2013 twin polls that saw a new executive led by Mayor Njong Fonyuy Donatus, put in place.

In his address, Mayor Njong Fonyuy Donatus urged councilors to preserve the trust bestowed on them during elections through commitment and hard work so that at the end of the mandate, the people of Kumbo will still renew their confidence on them. He called on the Divisional Delegates and service heads who are the technical partners of the Kumbo Council to continue to work as a team with the Council, so that together, they can build a better Kumbo.

Presenting the budget, Mayor Njong stated that the 2014 budget witnessed a decrease of240,49905FCFA reason being that the Kumbo Council intends to make it more realistic this time around. He further intimated that the budget was prepared in line with Law No. 2009/011 of 10th July 2009, where operating expenditure estimates must not exceed 60% of total expenditure, and personnel expenditure must not exceed 35% of operating expenses.

The 1stAssistant SDO for Bui, Dr. Mohammadou in his remarks expressed gratitude for the fruitful deliberations and said budgetary sessions are very important as that would determine how money will be spent. He lauded the sensible observations of the councillors saying that was proof of the interest they have for the well being of their municipality. He further called on all and sundry to put hands on deck and exploit all possible avenues to make the budget realizable.

Amongst the deliberations adopted the councillors resolved to authorize the Mayor to recruit more staff, purchase a new administrative vehicle, sign partnerships with organizations and volunteers. Worthy of note is the fact that the session was enlarged to deconcentrated sector ministries. Together with the Councillors, an annual action plan was prepared, reflecting the aspirations of the budget.  At the start of the budgetary session, committees were formed that will deliberate and plan activities for the better management of the Kumbo Council

 
Help for Less Privileged

Holding for the 9th consecutive time, Mayor´s Day was instituted by mayor Njong Fonyuy Donatus in 2005, as a day whereby the mayor communes with the less privileged in Kumbo such as  inmates of the Kumbo Principal Prison, orphans at the Shisong Orphanage, the visually impaired of the integrated school for the blind, groups of physically challenged persons, children with autism at the Kumbo Chrystal foundation, children from Kumbo schooling at the Integrated deaf for the school Mbingo, the elderly and families with sets of triplets.

On Friday 23rd  May 2014, tradition was again respected with the first stop at the Kumbo Principal Prisons where, the 126 inmates were presented gifts such as a bundle of zinc for the roofing of the canteen, cooked food and drinks, soaps and other toiletries, two footballs and others. The event continued with a walk by all the beneficiaries, the Kumbo council executive and a cross section of the population of Kumbo from the Tobin Round About to the Kumbo Council hall, where there was a ceremony to hand over assistance such as food, toiletries, school fees, clothing, health insurance coverage, household utensils, cash assistance as per need expressed by beneficiaries.

Groups of physically challenged persons and groups of elderly persons in particular were given bags of rice to supplement the palm oil and soap offered them in the previous years to act as a revolving fund. These groups sell these items and share the interests accrued in order to cater for their daily needs.

Some children in institutions like the Chrystal Foundation, the integrated School for the Deaf, and some eight students with visual impairment schooling at the Government Bilingual School Kumbo were assisted with school fees.  A family with a set of triplets was equally assisted with food and toiletries for the babies. The occasion ended with a common meal with all the beneficiaries, who left the Kumbo Council Hal visibly satisfied, looking forward to next year’s edition.
