Cassongue - The governor of coastal Cuanza Sul province, Job Capapinha, Saturday in the town of Cassongue, defended the full and rational use of water resources in the locality, to boost the industrial, agricultural and social sector.

The municipality of Cassongue has 13 rivers and over a dozen affluents, including the Keve, Cubal and Nuto rivers, with characteristics that facilitate the recovery of old ones and installation of mini-hydropower plants, as well as the construction of dams, irrigation and livestock watering.

The governor was speaking at a meeting with members of the local administration where they analysed issues related to the economic and social sector, with special emphasis on the execution of projects included in the package of the Integrated Intervention Plan for Municipalities (PIIM).

"We have shown interest in attracting private investment so that it can take part in using mini-hydropower plants in Cassongue, with the aim of, in the long term, boosting the sector as part of the projects outlined by the Ministry for Energy and Water," he said.
