Government says it is buying only six cars
More than four thousand workers in Inhambane do not currently have social protection because their contributions were not handed over to the National Institute of Social Security (INSS) by their employers.
According to Radio Mozambique, the workers in question have been cheated by more than 200 companies uncovered by tax collection campaigns, which have closed their doors for unknown reasons and are among of a total of 1,500 companies that owe the INSS over 40 million meticais.
The INSS delegate in Inhambane, Nura Remane, condemns the behaviour of companies that violate workers’ rights.
“The ideal is to comply with deadlines and with what is established in social security regulations, and pay over contributions so as not to leave our workers in such a dire situation. It’s time for reform, and they cannot have it because their company is a debtor,” Radio Mozambique quotes Remane as saying.Source: O País
