President Filipe Nyusi is taking part in celebrations of the ten year anniversary of the reversal of the Cahora Bassa hydroelectric dam to the Mozambican state, in the village of Songo, Tete province, today.
On November 27, 2007, the Portuguese government handed over the 85 percent of the shares it held in the HCB company to the Mozambican State,
The head of state will have lunch and participate in a seminar on the strategic vision for the HCB, including future investments in the hydroelectric plant, portfolio projects for the modernisation of the electric power system and corporate strategy for 2018-2020.
Prior to his participation in the seminar, the president will visit the dam, reservoir and power plant, and inaugurate the third phase of the HCB’s housing project consisting of houses for the company’s senior technicians.
Residents of Songo consider that the management of the Cahora Bassa hydroelectric dam by the Mozambican state is boosting the growth of the village in particular and of the district in general.Source: Rádio Moçambique
