About two weeks ago, the Assembly of the Republic proposed to the government the extension of state representation to the city of Maputo, since from next year the capital of the country will no longer has a governor.
The idea of the parliament was to ensure, through the office of a secretary of state, the exercise of functions exclusive to the state and sovereignty, as well as those attributed to decentralised governance that have not yet been transferred to the Municipality of Maputo City.
At the time, the proposal was rejected by the executive because it considered that the city of Maputo enjoyed a special status, but this Friday, Minister of State Administration Carmelita Namashulua explained that the Mozambican capital would rather have a representative of the state.
Speaking during a visit to the province of Maputo as head of the Frelimo central brigade, Minister Namashulua said the executive was preparing a bill on the matter that would be submitted to parliament for approval.
