Praia, Sep 28 (Inforpress) – The Minister of Agriculture and Environment, Gilberto Silva, said in Praia City that the Government “gave no instruction” for stoppage in the works of the Dam in Principal, at São Miguel in the countryside of the Island of Santiago.
Last week, the Regional Political Commission of the African Party of Independence of Cabo Verde (PAICV, opposition party) in North Santiago denounced that the Government of the Movement for Democracy (MpD, ruling party) ordered to suspend the works of the Dam in Principal “without give any explanation to the county. ”
Addressed by the press, the official said that the Government “has nothing to do with it” and any clarification about the stoppage is necessary to contact the executing company, because, he said, “they are who have established their execution schedules.”
However, he considered that he does not understand why they are divulging this “false news” that the Government has stopped the works of the Dam.
“We are evaluating the works of the Dam in Principal, taking into account all its conveniences and we can not justify the false statements made in particular by certain means or the opposition. They are supposed to explain and present evidence that the Government has ordered the works stopped,”he said.
