I sure hope that the gov will rather give food to the poor than to hike the price

Why do the police have to use live amunition against unarm demonstrators? They are throwing rocks at moving vehicles. This govt is so corrupted, I dont understand why the international community keeps given them money. The majority goes to take care of the Frelimo regine.

Well, I am a concerned Mozambican citizen. I support this strike dispite being called ilegal by the government staff who (i)legally channel the donated funds to their own packet or bank accounts.
Electricity and water should be at resonable or cheap prices in Mozambique, these are natural resources and basic to everyone. In hand, i have a $20,000,000.00 agriculture project to request farm land space to produce wheat and poultry to reduce dependency on imports within the next 3 years.
So, Moz govtment you better approve this project...
