U.S. Provides Ships for Mozambique

Wednesday, January 03, 2007
The U.S. has donated three ships to Mozambique to boost the country’s capacity for inspection of its waters, following an increase in illegal fishing, an officer of the Mozambican navy said Friday in Maputo. Commander of the Mozambican Navy, Patrício Jotamo, said that the three ships would operate from the naval sub-bases of Tete (center), Metangula (north) and Nampula (north), according to a report on www.macauhub.com.mo. “This important donation will contribute to fighting the pillage of our resources, which is occurring in Mozambique’s waters,” Jotamo said. Jotamo noted that the Bazaruto archipelago was one of the points of the country in which the actions of “pirate fleets” was most intense. “The arrogance and the ease with which Mozambican marine resources are plundered shows that the pirates are confident that nothing will happen to them, because they operate in an area without the means to detain them,” Jotamo said.
