Cidade de Maputo: Chefe do Estado faz a entrega de 100 novas casas tipo-zero destinadas aos jovens

The President of the Republic, Filipe Nyusi, inaugurated, Wednesday, March 15, in Incassane neighborhood, Katembe municipal district, in Maputo, 100 zero-type houses, built under the Renascer Project, an investment of the Housing Development Fund (FFH), in partnership with the Maputo Municipal Council, valued at about 70 million meticals.

The construction of the evolutionary houses, destined to young people from seven municipal districts of Maputo, is part of the implementation of the strategy of the Habita Moçambique Program, launched by the Mozambican statesman, and which establishes mechanisms for the provision of land and other basic infrastructures to citizens.

On the occasion, Filipe Nyusi referred that, in the country, access to decent housing, for the vast majority of the population, continues to be a challenge, especially for the young.

The Renascer project, as he explained, has as its target group the citizens whose income is up to five minimum wages, and the modality of access is through the payment of monthly installments of about 2.800 meticais, during a period of 20 years, without interest rate.

The construction of each house cost approximately 800 thousand meticais. Meanwhile, they are being sold for about 600 thousand meticais, a discount of about 20 percent, which represents the Government's contribution?, he emphasized.

For the statesman, this project has the advantage of allowing the evolution of the houses according to its model: ?the owners, if they want, will be able to negotiate with the project managers in order to make structural improvements to their new houses?

In addition to the 100 houses inaugurated today, 24 houses were also built in Monapo, Nampula province, and construction work is underway on 130 type-1 houses in Ribáuè, Nampula, 24 in Pemba, Cabo Delgado, 41 in Montepuez, also Cabo Delgado, 20 in Mecufi district, Nampula, and 25 in Metangula municipality, Niassa.

For the Minister of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources, Carlos Mesquita, the construction of 100 houses in Incassane is the result of the collaboration of local authorities and the support that his Ministry has been receiving from the Municipality of Maputo.

It should be noted that the Ministry of Public Works Housing and Water Resources has been creating conditions for the construction of more housing, within the possible circumstances. As a result, in a project negotiated with the World Bank, it embarked on a challenge to build about two thousand houses on the improvement model, in the North of the country.

The project, which started four months ago, is being developed in the cities of Nacala, Nampula, Pemba, and in Montepuez, with an investment of 100 million US dollars," concluded Carlos Mesquita.
