Weighbridges needed to protect Maputo Ring Road
The inauguration of the Maputo-KaTembe bridge will not be happening this month as was previously forecast by Maputo-Sul, company responsible for the project.
Having met yesterday at the 19th ordinary session, the Council of Ministers considered a report on the progress of the bridge and connecting roads, which explains that the delay of the inauguration is due to the delays in implementation which were caused by the delay in withdrawing the vendors of the Malanga market.
Armindo Ngunga, a spokesman of the session, told reporters that a new date for the inauguration of the project has not yet been indicated, and construction is taking place in its concluding phase.
Also in yesterday’s session, the Government approved the proposal for revision of the Law on Administrative Protection of the State on Local Authorities, to be sent shortly to the Assembly of the Republic, for consideration and approval.
According to Armindo Ngunga, the revision was intended to bring the law in line with the specific changes made to the Constitution of the Republic, without changing the basic rules governing the exercise of State Administrative Authority over local authorities.
Also approved was the decree that establishes norms that regulate the attributions, autonomy, the budgetary regime, the organisation and operation of institutes, foundations and public funds, with impact on the rationalization of human, financial and material resources of the State.
Another instrument approved at yesterday’s session is the regulation of state’s assets, which establishes the legal regime applicable to asset management, covering the acquisition, registration, inventory, use, conservation, slaughter, disposal, inspection and supervision of State’s assets by the state’s direct and indirect administrative bodies, including local authorities, representations of the country abroad, public enterprises and other legal entities.
Also approved was the decree that establishes the fees and fines due to the licensing and registration services of the information and accreditation bodies of representatives and journalists of information organs. The purpose of this review is to establish the legal regime of fees to be charged for registration, licensing, endorsement, renewal and advertising inserts by the press, radio and television press services, including digital platforms, as well as in the act of accreditation of journalists and national correspondents, foreigners and self-employed collaborators.
Two other decrees were approved yesterday, one amending the Personal Income Tax Code (IRPS) and another revising the basic social security programs.Source: Notícias
