The municipalities remain the order of the day and, to conclud the southern zone, we look at the heads of the towns and villages of the Inhambane province, namely Inhambane, Maxixe, Quissico, Massinga and Vilankulo.
For Inhambane municipal city, while Frelimo re-bets on Benedito Guimino, the current mayor, as head of the list, Renamo bets on Vitalino Macauze and the MDM bet again on Fernando Nhaca.
Guimino, Benedito, is the current mayor of Inhambane, he was born in Maxixe city in 1970, and in 1980 he completed elementary education.
The following year, in 81, he entered the Maxixe Secondary School. Five years later he completed grade-9, after which he went to study for the Mwachicoloane Pre-university School in Gaza, where he completed pre-university education in 1989 with grade-11.
At 27 years old, in 1997, he completed his degree in Chemistry at the Faculty of Sciences of Eduardo Mondlane University.
Shortly before finishing his higher education, he went to work for the Ministry of Health, specifically in the National Office of Quality Control of Medicines. He performed the role of drug analyst. In fact, his job was to test medicines to assess their quality before they entered the market. In the evenings he taught at the Maputo Health Institute. This relationship with Health lasted only four years, since in 2000 it went to Zambia to take an industrial quality control course.
In the return, still in the same year, he went to work for Nampula province, in the factory of Coca-Cola.
Return to Inhambane
In late 2000, Guimo returned to Inhambane, this time to the city. The following year, he was assigned as a teacher at the Emília Daússe Secondary School in Inhambane. In 2003 he received the first prize of best teacher of that school. The achievement was repeated in the following two years: 2004 and 2005. Following this he was appointed director of the Muelé Secondary School, institution where he worked from 2006 to 2012, from where he left to direct the destinations of the Inhambane municipality.
Vitalino Macauze is the bet of the part now under the interim coordination of Ossufo Momade and, the particularity of this head of list, is that his name in some lists figures as Vitalino Maria!
