Mozambique’s government said on Tuesday that the two shelters opened to receive 212 families removed from Maputo’s Hulene rubbish tip as almost all the families are now in rented accommodation.
The collapse of part of the tip killed 16 people who lived in homes buried in the vicinity.
A cabinet spokesman said today that only seven families were still a tone of the accommodation centres because homes had not yet been found for them.
Ana Comoana said all the families received 31,000 meticals (€438) each to pay three-months’ rent while they prepared a definitive solution.
