Mozambican government goes to parliament to answer on State companies and central bank

The Mozambican government will go to parliament on Wednesday and Thursday to answer questions from members of parliament about the interventions in the state-owned companies Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique and Tmcel, as well as the financial situation of the Bank of Mozambique.
The issues are included in the questions addressed to the executive by the three benches of the Assembly of the Republic, for the meeting in the chamber over the next two days.
The parliamentary group of the ruling party Frente de Libertação de Moçambique (Frelimo), with a majority of seats, wants to know “the scope of the interventions recently carried out in the public companies Tmcel [telecommunications] and Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique and the gains that are expected.
The majority bench also wants information on the capacity of the South African company hired to support the management of the Mozambican flag carrier. Frelimo also expects the executive to make a statement on the current state of economic and social development of the country, focusing on roads and health.
For its part, the bench of the Mozambican National Resistance (Renamo), the main opposition party, will question the government on the sustainability of the state business sector and the executive’s position regarding what it considers to be “unreliable accounts, promiscuous, incompetent and arbitrary supervision” of the Bank of Mozambique.
The main opposition party is also questioning the executive on the fight against the wave of kidnappings that for some years has hit some Mozambican cities, and on the management of funds intended for the agricultural sector.
