4143 is the toll free line
After getting a free telephone line, residents of Gicumbi district on February 5th 2013 said that it will ease communication between them and local authorities.
According to Joseph Munyezamu, mayor for social affairs in Gicumbi district, the toll free line will help residents report to the authorities about the insufficient or efficient services offered to them.
“The district put it in place as a way of fighting corruption and promoting good governance so that residents are solved quickly,” he explains.
The mayor adds that it will help local leaders to know violence that occur in some homes since local leaders and many residents have handsets.
Leonidas Ndashimye says “We are happy because our problems have been taking long before they are resolved. With this telephone lines, we shall be able to report our issues on time.”
Before, it could take a person two or more months to trace local leaders who are ever busy in different tasks.
Gustave Ndatimana, a resident says that after listening to local leaders announcing the free line on Radio Ishingiro, he was overjoyed and knew the mistakes of local leaders will stop.
The district administration says this toll free line will be given to all residents through a general resident’s meeting.
