The project, budgeted at 63,586,267.73 meticais, will supply around 7,500 inhabitants in the main town of Muanza and establish 300 home connections and 28 institutional connections to the district government building and district services.
Bulha said at the ceremony that he remained committed to solving the problems facing communities through the provision of basic social services, and asked the population to cooperate during construction work and the contractor to comply with the established deadline of 18 months.
Report movement of strange people
Meanwhile, on Thursday, and faced with the wave of crime and the recruitment of young people into the terrorist group operating in the north of the country, Governor Bulha appealed to residents in Muanza district to be aware of the movement of strange people and to report the competent authorities.
The governor was speaking at a popular rally on Thursday (15-12), in Vila de Muanza, where he asked young people not to be seduced by false promises of employment. He also delivered 45 bicycles to community leaders in the district.
Bulha said at the time that he was gratified that the population of Muanza had abandoned the practice of nomadic agriculture, which was making it difficult to plan investment for the district.
Finally, Governor Bulha handed out soccer balls and appealed to the population to abandon gender-based violence and premature unions, and stop dropping out of school. He appealed to parents and guardians to enrol their children for the 2023 school year, for which vacancies were still available.
