Watch: Natural disasters in Mozambique killed 61 people in six months to March - INGC
The National Inspection of Economic Activities (INAE) has closed seven “hotels” in Inhambane for allegedly promoting prostitution. The premises are all located in the cities of Inhambane and Maxixe, some in residential neighbourhoods and others near schools.
The head of operations at the National Inspection of Economic Activities said that the activities carried on in the premises were highly reprehensible and that the state did not issue licenses for activities that violated social morals,
The premises were found to be non-compliant with hygiene and safety standards with dirty sheets and mattresses and lack of water putting visitors at risk of contracting diseases.
During the raid, our report witnessed an episode where a strong argument took place between the INAE staff and the premises’ managers [brothel managers, in the original RM report].
At noon yesterday, men and women, mostly civil servants and heads of families, and students and teenagers could be seen flowing into the establishments requesting short-term accommodation.
For the INEA, the families surrounding the now-closed establishments were responsible for compliance with the decision, and INEA inspector Higino Feliciano appealed to others to come forward with information in similar situations.Source: Rádio Moçambique
