Chikuma community administrator Adelina Salomão said that the rains in the region are the main cause of the ravine progression and the state of severe degradation of the seven kilometers of the road section on the Ngangawe mountain range, which covers the two localities.

He reported that the intervention of the situation now overcame the capacities of its administration and of the municipality and has asked the provincial and central structures of the government to ensure a speedy resolution of the issue.

Ganda's administrator, Francisco Prata, confirmed to ANGOP that this section had been banned and that a technical team should arrive in the next 24 hours for its intervention.
