Fifty Mozambican Companies Fined For Environmental Violations
The fines collected totalled 18 million meticais (about US$580,000), Fumo told the newspaper Diario de Mocambique, adding that the common infractions included operating without the necessary licences and a failure to manage trade waste. Among those suspended was a tyre re-treading business in the city of Beira.
Fumo expressed regret that there were businesses which did not take steps to tackle the dust that they produced and she voiced the need for increasing penalties for each infraction of regulations.
The official also disclosed that MICOA was currently involved in four major resettlement programmes to make way for economic projects. These included the construction of the Maputo ring road and the creation of facilities associated with the natural gas industry in the northern province of Cabo Delgado.
Last year, MICOA took part in the resettlement of people living in coal mining areas in Tete province.
