At the hand-over ceremony, the provincial governor of Bié, Álvaro de Boavida Neto, said that tractors and other means of sanitation were delivered so as to enable the improvement of sanitation.

He said that garbage collection has been poor, due to lack of means of transport and personal protection such as gloves, boots and masks.

“The tractors will accelerate the collection of solid waste”, he said, adding that the means will also contribute to the reduction of some diseases, caused by the concentration of waste.
