This was during her first meeting with the residents of Panguila, municipality of Dande on Saturday.

She said that it is her intention to cooperate with all living forces in this locality (political, religious, traditional and social organisations) in the socio-economic development programmes of the region.

"What we want is a governance closer to the community and participatory. We are talking and listening to your concerns to identify the problems you face and jointly find the solution," she said.

Mara Quiosa identified the local problems. They are

the collection of garbage and solid waste, lack of water, electricity, improved access and the fight against juvenile delinquency.

She urged the residents to remain vigilant to curb vandalism of public assets, control and denounce such practices, in order to protect the residential zones.

The Housing Project of Panguila was inaugurated in January 2003, to accommodate the population from high- risk areas of the country's capital.
