Authorities in Sofala say they have strengthened security measures in Marromeu so that today the disorderly scenes witnessed in the 10 October elections will not happen again, Miramar reports.
Alfredo Mussa, police commander for Sofala province, says that he is in Marromeu “in person, to guarantee there is no repeat of the scenes that happened on 10 October”.
“Let voters vote freely, then go home. You are not permitted, after voting, to stand around waiting in or near the polling station, on the grounds that you are waiting for the count,” Mussa asserted.
“Avoid breaking the electoral law,” he advised. “We advise citizens not to create a disturbance.”
