Resultado de imagem para tubarao em inhambaneAbout 60 people have been mobilized to catch a shark which attacked and killed a woman last Saturday in the Bay of Inhambane in southern Mozambique.The Mozambican Maritime Administration has authorized the operation, and a team of around 60 fishermen, biologists and local officials has been assembled to hunt and kill the shark. The Megafauna Association, an NGO that protects marine wild life in Inhambane, is opposed to the operation. Cited in the independent daily “O Pais”, the Association warns that, even if a shark is caught, there is no way to be certain that it is the same animal which killed the woman on Saturday. It is not even clear which species of shark attacked the woman. The spokesperson for the association, Dalila Siqueira, said that although the lives of human beings are certainly more important than those of sharks, killing sharks is no guarantee that the seas will become any safer. 
There were plenty of cases of beaches in other parts of the world where sharks believed to have attacked people were killed, but shark attacks continued. Furthermore, sharks travel long distances, and there is no guarantee that a shark that was in the Bay of Inhambane last Saturday will still be there now.Nonetheless, the operation to catch and kill the shark began on Wednesday. Six boats using long lines were used. The long lines, familiar from tuna fishing, trail behind the boats, and carry hooks laden with bait. Chunks of fish and of red meat were used as bait – but no shark was caught on Wednesday.If the long lines do not work, nets will be used to hunt the shark. In both cases, it is more than likely that other species of fish will be caught – and not only fish. Long-lining has come under strong criticism for its effects on seabirds. Birds go after the bait, become hooked on the lines and drown.The hunt for the shark could go on for a week, and the estimated cost of the operation is 90,000 meticais (about 2,200 US dollars).Shark attacks are rare in Mozambican waters, and vastly more sharks are killed by human beings than the other way round. Sharks are killed, including in Mozambique, for their fins, which are sold in Asia where they are regarded as a delicacy.


The London based company Ncondezi Energy announced on Thursday that it has extended its commercial deal with Mozambique’s publicly owned electricity company EDM for the development of a 300 megawatt coal-fired power station in the western province of Tete. Unlike neighbouring coal projects, Ncondezi is devoting itself, not to exports, but to meeting demand for electricity, using its own thermal coal. It is thus, unlike other mining companies in Tete, not dependent on rail and port infrastructure.The Company is targeting commissioning of the power plant in the second half of 2017 with commercial operations beginning in 2018.Key to these plans is signing a binding agreement with EDM over the sale of the electricity. So far a conditional agreement has been reached – and the extension of this agreement until the end of the year is necessary as Ncondezi has not yet been able to fulfil its obligations.In particular, the company must reach a binding agreement with a strategic investor, confirm the Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) and O&M (operation and maintenance manual) arrangements and reconfirm the projects economics.Ncondezi plans to eventually expand the project in stages to 1,800 megawatts.


Total projected investment in natural gas operations in the Rovuma Basin, in the northern Mozambican province of Cabo Delgado, now stands at 31 billion US dollars, according to Omar Mitha, chairperson of the National Hydrocarbon Company (ENH).Most of this will be consumed in Rovuma Basin Offshore Area One, where the operator is the American company Anadarko.
Speaking at a Maputo press conference launching the celebrations of the 35th anniversary of ENH, Mitha said that about four billion dollars has already been invested and the figure for Area One could reach 24 billion dollars in the coming years. He broke this sum down as 5.6 billion dollars for the preliminary exploration, ten billion dollars for building two gas liquefaction plants (known as “trains”), 3.3 billion for later development studies, 4.4 billion in interest and bank fees, and 2.6 billion as contingency funds.Mitha expected Anadarko and its partners to make the final investment decision in the first quarter of 2016, which will then be followed by financial closure with the sindicate of banks financing the project. He estimated that building the gas liquefaction facilities will take five years as from 2016.The operation will be 55 per cent funded by bank loans and 45 per cent by own capital from Anadarko and the other members of its consortium. That will include ENH which has a 15 per cent stake in Area One. Mitha admitted that ENH does not have the liquidity to pay for its 15 per cent of the investment costs and is looking into options for funding.The investment needs for Area Four, where the operator is the Italian energy company ENI, are much smaller. Mitha put them at seven billion dollars “all supported by financial leverage”. ENH only has a ten per cent stake in Area Four.While Anadarko is committed to building its liquefaction trains onshore, in the Afungi peninsula in Palma district, ENI plans to set up a floating liquefaction factory (FLNG) adjacent to its wells.

“With these investments”, Mitha said, “Mozambique will increase its capacity to export gas, and to develop industry through projects to generate energy, and to produce fertilizers and liquid fuels. This will increase income for the state, create job opportunities, and provide opinions for the provision of services by Mozambican businesses”.ENH is also a partner of the South African petro-chemical company SASOL in exploiting the onshore gas reserves in the Pande and Temane fields in the southern province of Inhambane. Installed capacity here is currently 183 million gigajoules a year. Most of this is piped to SASOL’s plants in South Africa, but 1.5 million gigajoules a year is used in Mozambique.Electricity generated from the Inhambane gas initially reached just 100 households in the northern districts of Inhambane in 2004, but that figure has now risen to 980 households (about 4,000 people). This source of energy, Mitha pointed out, is 40 to 50 per cent cheaper than buying firewood or bottled gas.The Inhambane gas is now being distributed in Maputo and Matola cities and the adjacent district of Inhambane. Initially, the gas is being piped to industries and commercial establishments, but distributions to homes should begin by the end of this year.

The Mozambican Minister of Education, Jorge Ferrao, on Wednesday declared “zero tolerance” of academic fraud.He was reacting to the latest cheating scandal, concerning the 12th grade extraordinary examinations held in August. An investigation into 43 of the country’s 200 public secondary schools confirmed that cheating had taken place in nine schools, involving 407 pupils.Cited by the independent television station STV, Ferrao said there had been far too much tolerance of cheating in the past. “Over the years, it has become the practice to accept that exam secrecy is violated and that the process is falsified”, he said.
In those schools where fraud was detected this time, “the finding is that these schools have been permissive”, he said. “This is something which makes us, as a Ministry, very sad. We look fraudulent, and we do not deserve this”. If the Ministry were to take no action, he said, it would be deceiving the pupils’ families, their future employers, and society as a whole. A school certificate should show employers what a student is worth –“but when we send him into the world of work, we find that he has difficulties. That’s a whole chain of investment that has failed”.The general inspector of the Education Ministry, Quiteria Mabote, said that, whereas in the past students might smuggle the answers to exam questions into the examination room scribbled on a piece of paper, nowadays they use mobile phones.There were strong indications of cheating, she said, since there was no other reasonable explanation for students in a class answering in exactly the same way to exam questions, and thus obtaining exactly the same high marks.For this to occur, the chain of exam secrecy must be broken, and Mabote admitted that the Ministry does not yet know where the leaks take place. “If we knew how the exams are leaked, we would staunch the evil at its root”, she said. “We take every measure to prevent material from being leaked, but even so, leaks happen”.She guaranteed that the Ministry would look at all 12th grade students in the schools affected, and those who were not involved in cheating will receive their exam results. Also on Wednesday, Ferrao announced that the Ministry expects to enrol about 1.32 million pupils in the first grade of primary education in 2016.At first sight, this figure seems surprisingly high. The age at which children should enter primary school is six, and projections from the 2007 population census suggest that there are no more than 780,000 six year olds in the country.But, according to education officials contacted , many parents do not enroll their children in school at the right age. This means that many of the children who will step inside a school for the first time in 2016 are seven or eight years old, or even older.Ferrao gave the figure for first grade enrolment at a ceremony where a memorandum of understanding was signed with the Portuguese embassy for support in the training of education staff. He said that the Ministry has been hiring around 8,500 new teachers every year, to ensure good quality education.But the country remains short of teachers with adequate educational training. The Ministry, Ferrao said, had therefore began to cooperate with Brazil to train the instructors who will work at Mozambique’s 24 teacher training institutes.

He hoped that, under the new memorandum of understanding “we will have more teachers trained in Portugal”.
