Government invests $85 million to improve water supply

The government is investing about $85 million to improve the country's drinking water supply chain.

 Of that amount 40 million dollars are being used to reinforce the water supply in the city of Pemba, in Cabo Delgado, and 22 million dollars for the water supply in the cities of Beira and Dondo in Sofala.

The Minister of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources, João Machathine, who advanced the data to the press, said that the investment in water supply infrastructure demonstrates the government's efforts aimed at improving the population's quality of life.

Machathine, who was speaking this Thursday at the municipality in Matola, Maputo province, after inaugurating the Guava and Mathemele distribution centers, said that these new developments will increase access to drinking water for about 465,000 people in the Greater Maputo metropolitan area.

He clarified that the construction of the two water distribution centers budgeted at around 570 million meticais is part of the financial agreement signed between the Government and the Netherlands.

The inauguration of the distribution centers of Guava and Mathemele, marks the end of the production and distribution chain of water in the greater Maputo region, after the inauguration two weeks ago of the Sabié water treatment plant by the President of the Republic Filipe Nyusi.
