MOZAMBIQUE: PRESIDENT SWEARS IN NEW PRIME MINISTER AND MINISTERS

04 Mar 2022

Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi swore in the new prime minister, Adriano Maleiane, and other members government as part of the reshuffle.

The head of state on Thursday appointed former economy and finance minister Adriano Maleiane as the new prime minister, with the state’s accounts being handled by Max Tonela – who in turn is leaving the ministry of mineral resources and energy to be led by Carlos Zacarias, until now president of the National Petroleum Institute (INP).

Carlos Mesquita transits from industry and commerce to minister of public works, housing and water resources.

Maleiane, Tonela and Mesquita have been with President Nyusi’s cabinet since (2015-2020).

Also taking office was Amilcar Tivane as deputy minister of Economy and Finance, Silvino Moreno as minister of Industry and Trade and Lídia Cardoso as the new minister of Sea, Inland Waters and Fisheries.

On Wednesday, Nyusi dismissed six of his 18 ministers and on Thursday morning announced the dismissal of the prime minister, Carlos Agostinho do Rosário.
