“We are going to conduct and in-depth recovery to make sure the fair’s sellers and other people around there are safe,” said the mayor of the district council of Água Grande, quoted by the STP-Press news agency, adding that the cost of these works is 116,000 euros.

The contract was signed by José Maria da Fonseca and the managing director of Top Internacional, Hu Na Quing, in the presence of some councillors of that district of the capital of São Tomé. (Macauhub)
