Nampula governor Victor Borges has promised to pay his 1,250,000 meticais bill to a hotel in Nampula where he stayed for a period of about thirty days, within the next eight months.
Victor Borges, who moved with his family to the hotel because of a plague of rats at his official residence, revealed that he had already paid 300,000 meticais by bank transfer.
“I paid about 300,000 meticais and gave my bank standing instruction to transfer a certain amount monthly, so that in eight to nine months the debt will be cleared,” Borges said.
Acceding to criticism and returning home, Victor Borges apologised to the people and said he would personally settle his expenses, assessed at around 1,250,000 meticais (around EUR 18,200).
