São Vicente: “Municipal firefighters have become headquarters for political parties and unions” – Augusto Neves

Mindelo, Oct 11 (Inforpress) – The Mayor of São Vicente said today that São Vicente’s municipal firefighters have become the headquarters of political parties and trade unions and therefore have difficulty fulfilling their duties.

Augusto Neves, who was speaking at the São Vicente Municipal Assembly session, responded to a question made by the Cabo Verdean Independent and Democratic Union (UCID) municipal bench leader, Lucas Evangelista, who, in a political statement, criticized the situation in São Vicente.

The opposition party politician recalled that the law placed firefighters under the jurisdiction of the City Hall São Vicente, given the importance of the civil protection and fire service in the face of environmental concerns and the effects of climate change that could cause “horrific disasters”.

In addition, he said, Mindelo is a port city of “international reference” with a population of around 85.000 inhabitants, a feature that imposes “increased responsibilities” and “special attention” to the civil protection service and fire brigade.
