Mozambique to get military comms school


New Mozambican operator Movitel has allocated over USD1.5 million toward equipping a communications school for the Mozambican Defence Force.

The school, to be built in Malhampsene in Matola, will offer training in communications for the armed forces.

In officially launching the construction of the new school building, the Mozambican Minister of Defence, Filipe Nyusi, highlighted the importance of modern communications capability in the military.

He noted the strengthening of civil-military relations, as well as the consolidation of relations that Mozambique is developing with Vietnam in the defence sector. Movitel is owned by Vietnam’s Viettel, a military telecoms operator.
