Maputo and Matola will install closed-circuit TV (CCTV) monitoring systems in an attempt to combat crime and improve the security of citizens and their property. The system is already being installed along various roads in the capital as well as in Matola, but so far the authorities have not issued any statements on the matter.
Maputo and Matola have been the scene of armed robberies, kidnappings and assaults recently, an issue which is known to be of concern to the authorities, and the installation of video surveillance at strategic points of the capital could contribute towards improving citizens’ safety.
Cameras can already be seen along Avenida Kenneth Kaunda, Praça dos Combatentes, Avenida Eduardo Mondlane and Avenida Vladimir Lenin. In Matola, video surveillance equipment can be seen at the “700” intersection and next to the Praça do Heróis.
João Matlombe, councillor for Transport and Traffic in Maputo City, said that the system was intended for the monitoring and managing of road traffic and would be switched on later this year.
Orlando Mudumane, spokesperson of the Maputo PRM, said that the police have no video surveillance projects running at present. The spokesperson of the general command of the PRM, Inácio Dina, promised more information about the initiative soon, including the degree of completion and the probable system activation date.
