44 years on, the Mozambican state registers property rights over '33 Andares'
The Mozambican state’s official engineering laboratory (LEM) has warned Maputo Municipal Council that, despite the change in contractor, inappropriate material is still being used in the reconstruction of Julius Nyerere Avenue, one of the city’s main thoroughfares.
The Council initially awarded the contract to a consortium headed by the Portuguese company Britalar. The consortium received ten million euros (about 11 million US dollars) to rebuild the road, but before the road could be delivered to the Council, it began to disintegrate as huge cracks and potholes opened.
