GOVERNOR OF NAMPULA’S WIFE APPEALS TO VARIOUS SOCIAL ACTORS TO INTENSIFY ACTIONS THAT PROMOTE PREVENTION AND COMBAT OF EARLY MARRIAGES

On Thursday (June 22, 2023), Ana Mimosa Mungumbe Alberto, the wife of the Governor of Nampula Province, called on various social actors to intensify actions that promote prevention and combat of early marriages during the Provincial Youth Forum held at the conference hall of the UniRovuma Cultural Center, under the theme “Conscious and Engaged Youth in the Prevention and Elimination of Early Marriages.”

In her speech, Ana Mimosa, the Governor’s wife, reaffirmed the importance of being involved in the plenary debate of the thematic units presented, considering it a unique opportunity for sharing knowledge and experiences among participants and a joint reflection on early marriages.

At the same occasion, Mimosa emphasized that economic difficulties associated with poverty, lack of access to information, and inadequate integration of girls into the network of opportunities and decision-making spaces are among the factors contributing to early marriages, endangering the social lives of girls and preventing them from fully enjoying their rights.

Reinalda Mbeve, President of the Provincial Youth Council, stated that the integration of girls into various development projects and the redirection of financing structures towards credit lines aligned with girls’ projects remain significant challenges in addressing gender inequalities and the economic dependence of girls. She considered these elements as forms of preventing early marriages.

Similarly, Gildon Cardoso, one of the forum participants representing the collective opinion, praised the strict compliance with Law 19/2019 of October 22, which promotes the prevention and combat of early marriages. He also emphasized the need to integrate the transversality of the topic into all aspects of the teaching and learning process.

Approaching the issue from another perspective, Líder Noventa, from the jurisdiction area of Rapale, challenged all participants and society in general to strengthen measures for the prevention and combat of early marriages through timely reporting and follow-up.

It is worth mentioning that besides the Governor’s wife, the Provincial Youth Forum was attended by Mr. Cachimo Raúl, Director of the Provincial Justice and Labor Service, who opened and closed the event, and Reinalda Mbeve, President of the Provincial Youth Council, as well as officials from the Provincial Gender, Child, and Social Action Directorate, the Governor’s Office, and the State Secretary’s Office, the Provincial Directorate of Education, and other staff. The forum featured various cultural moments.

In her concluding remarks, the Governor’s wife stated that a large number of children in a family, climate change, HIV/AIDS, low income, and inadequate survival mechanisms should not push girls into early marriages, as they should focus on studying and envisioning a better future.

LEADERS OF NAMPULA PROVINCE CHALLENGE OTHER GOVERNANCE STAKEHOLDERS TO STRENGTHEN FOUNDATIONS THAT PROMOTE SOCIAL COHESION, PEACEFUL ENVIRONMENT, TRANQUILITY, SOLIDARITY, AND PARTNERSHIP FOR ACCELERATED DEVELOPMENT

The Governor of Nampula Province, Manuel Rodrigues Alberto, and the State Secretary in the Province, Jaime Bessa Augusto Neto, respectively announced this Thursday morning (June 22, 2023) during the 24th Session of the Provincial Development Observatory of the country’s most populous province, under the theme “Nampula, Consolidating Partnerships and Coordination of Local Actors for Sustainable and Inclusive Development,” that the accelerated development of Nampula requires the strengthening of foundations and partnerships.

In his opening speech, Manuel Rodrigues stated that the event aligns with the governance agenda, which includes joint planning, monitoring, and evaluation, as well as one of the ways to promote interaction, consultation, and dialogue between the Government and all its partners.

According to the Governor of Nampula, the 24th Session of the Development Observatory is considered another opportunity to consolidate the record and share the achievements of the Provincial Executive Council. It aims to devise the best strategies to overcome the challenges that arise from the victories achieved.

Manuel Rodrigues stated that the government recognizes that promoting sustainable social and economic development increasingly requires the improvement of public planning systems and processes, in order to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of implementing and monitoring the key options for participatory and inclusive planning. This government vision is certainly supported by Civil Society Organizations and Business Associations advocating for inclusive processes and the full participation of citizens in balanced, sustainable development and social cohesion.

According to Manuel Rodrigues, Nampula Province has been undertaking a range of actions since 2022 to analyze the main development problems and challenges, as documented in the Performance Balance Report for the Province during the year 2022 and the Annual Plan for the current year 2023, which were also subject to analysis and review in that forum.

Manuel Rodrigues announced that the realization of the First Session of the Advisory Committee of the Northern Mozambique Urban Development Project (PDUNM) allowed for the knowledge of strategic guidelines in promoting coordination among the project stakeholders, discussing action plans and goals for project implementation. It also provided an opportunity for knowledge and experience exchange among the participants. This model should always be followed for the well-being of the population.

Another challenge raised is related to participation in the signing of a memorandum of understanding between MOZPARKs and KENMARE, within the framework of the Industrial Parks Project launch, specifically for the establishment of the Topuito Industrial Park, as part of the government’s initiative to industrialize Mozambique.

Considering the magnitude of the meeting, the Governor of Nampula expressed optimism, stating that there was no doubt that this forum aimed to evaluate and seek solutions that ensure no one is left behind and strengthen the foundations that promote social cohesion, peace, tranquility, solidarity, and partnership.

For this reason, the session should adapt to the current moments of building resilience in its multifaceted elements, especially regarding climate change, according to the Governor.

Meanwhile, according to Jaime Bessa Augusto Neto, the State Secretary in the Province, the Provincial Development Observatory is a known space created within the framework of participatory planning and monitoring involving civil society and national and international cooperation partners.

Jaime Neto further highlighted that it is a privileged space for interaction between the government and civil society, which daily monitors the pulse of economic and social development in our province. Therefore, we are willing and attentive to listen to all observations, suggestions, as well as advice, so that we can continue to provide better services to our communities in areas such as health, education, water supply, job creation, electricity provision, infrastructure development, and other services that contribute to accelerated development in our province.

“While discussing and being engaged in our 24th Development Observatory, we cannot be oblivious to the current context of challenges that impact the update of national projects aimed at promoting economic development, not only in our province but also in our country as a whole. Therefore, we must also align the government’s performance with the challenges and aspirations that affect not only our country but also the world at large, such as the impacts of climate change (Ana and Gombe), terrorism, Covid-19, malaria, cholera, and other challenges that have greatly affected us,” said Jaime Neto.
