WATCH: Three suspects in the murder of Portuguese citizen in Beira to remain in custody
Young Mozambicans who are performing civic service will contribute to the protection and safety of Maputo Municipal Transport Company (EMPTM) passengers and assets.
The carrier and the Civic Services of Mozambique (SCM) celebrated the signing of a memorandum of understanding establishing the partnership in Maputo yesterday.
The youth of the SCM will contribute “to maintaining security” essential for the provision of any service, Mozambican Information Agency quotes SCM commander Eugénio Mussa as saying.
Maria Yolanda Wane, Chairperson of the EMTPM Board of Directors, described the partnership as “an added value” for both the carrier and the training of young people.
The SCMs were created in 2012 and incorporated in the Defence Forces of Mozambique (FADM) as a way of training young people in the provision of humanitarian and civic services, and encourage young Mozambicans who do not perform mandatory military service to do humanitarian work in the area of literacy and adult education.
Young people who serve for two years have the same status as those who have performed mandatory military service.Source: Lusa
