Nova Sintra, Jun 24 (Inforpress) – The President of the Republic, Jorge Carlos Fonseca, highlighted Tuesday, with the celebration of the island’s 28th anniversary, the “potential” of the Brava Island and the struggles the inhabitants faced, “across borders”.
In a note sent to Inforpress, the Head of State stated that the celebration of municipality day, in the country, is “always a cause of great joy and pride” for the populations and the mayors, for the work developed, for “hard day’s work”.
“Today we celebrate municipality day of Brava, our smallest inhabited island, the smallest administrative district in Cabo Verde,” he said, stressing that the festive and historic event, this year surrounded by health contingencies, forces residents to adopt new behaviors and habits.
But, in addition to the contingencies, he stressed that it is necessary to take a “more attentive” look to the island that over the time, including post-independence and until today, has become the island considered the “most peripheral” in the country.
