The Governor of the Province of Niassa, Elina Judite Massegele, worked last Wednesday (12) in Mecula, the district most affected by the wave of terrorist attacks, where he revealed that, from November to December 2021, that district recorded seven terrorist attacks, the first taking place on November 25, in Chiuca. Then there were new attacks on the 28th, 29th and 30th of November and, later, between the 2nd, 08th and 22nd of December. The attacks took place in the villages of Macalange, Nalama, Lichengue, Nampewuesso and Naulala1. According to Massegele, the last attack took place on December 22 in the town of Naulala 2. Speaking at the headquarters of the district of Mecula, the official said: “We have already reinforced the Police of the Republic of Mozambique (PRM) and the Armed Forces for the Defense of Mozambique (FADM) in the most vulnerable positions, in order to contain the spread of the phenomenon, including the places attacked. However, the population has an important role in raising awareness to maintain surveillance and encourage the reporting of strange movements at the district level” . Interacting with the approximately 1,192 families corresponding to 3,803 internally displaced persons, the Governor said: “we must continue to fight this evil that affects us and delays our development”. According to Elina Judite Massegele, the employees and the population of the unaffected places must continue to lead their lives with normality, since tranquility reigns guaranteed by the Defense and Security Forces (FDS), having urged the teachers of the district of Mecula to be present at the workplace, as the school year is about to start. On site, the National Institute for Disaster Management (INGD) and other humanitarian organizations distributed tents, tarpaulins, plastic coverings, cereals, oilseeds, cooking oil and miscellaneous clothing. However, for the approximately 3,803 IDPs, 244 huts and 19 latrines have been built, with 173 huts and 14 latrines still lacking for families who still do not have a place to stay. It should be noted that this reception center is located in the main village of the district of Mecula. (Letter) Source: Carta de Moçambique
