Porto Amboim

Porto Amboim



Porto Amboim é uma cidade e município da província do Cuanza Sul, em Angola. Tem cerca de 137 mil habitantes e 3 646 km². É limitado a Norte pelo município da Quiçama, a Este pelos municípios de Quilenda e Amboim, a Sul pelo município do Sumbe, e a Oeste pelo Oceano Atlântico. É constituído pelas comunas de Porto Amboim e Capolo.

No local da actual cidade existia uma aldeia chamada Kissonde. Os portugueses tentaram colonizar a região em 1587, fundando uma povoação com o nome de Benguela. O povoado foi abandonado pouco depois e reconstruído no local onde hoje se situa a cidade de Benguela. Em 1771 os portugueses voltaram ao local original e ergueram a povoação de Benguela Velha, actual Porto Amboim. Em 1870 surge a primeira freguesia civil e em 1912 é instalado o município. Em 10 de Setembro de 1923 Benguela Velha é elevada à categoria de vila com o nome de Porto Amboim. Em 15 de Janeiro de 1974 passa a cidade.

Porto Amboim is a port town in Angola. It is located at around [show location on an interactive map] 10°43′60″S, 13°45′0″E. It is connected by an isolated 123km 610mm narrow-gauge railway to Gabela, albeit closed in 1987 due to the civil war and to the abandonment of most coffee plantations, the biggest source of revenue from [Gabela]. Originally Porto Amboim was known as kissonde, a small village later colonized in 1587 by the Portuguese naming it Benguela and later Benguela Velha (Old Benguela) due to the creation of another village today known as Benguela. In 1923 the name was changed to Porto Amboim.

Condomínio Mozozo

O Condomínio Mozozo (Porto Amboim )já está em fase de acabamentos. O empreiteiro fala numa execução na ordem dos 75 %.

No total as 80 casas C2,C3,C4,e C5, e a escola estão na fase de acabamentos. Deste grupo, setenta e duas casas já receberam cobertura.

Segundo o empreiteiro já começou a ser feita a instalação das redes de água e electricidade nas residências, enquanto que na parte de fora, toda a infra-estrutura está pronta, incluindo a rede de iluminação pública, esgotos e a rede de águas pluviais.

O empreiteiro disse igualmente que ainda este mês começa a asfaltar as ruas do Condomínio Mozozo e que aos poucos a obra está a tomar o ritmo normal. A previsão está prevista para o primeiro trimestre de 2011.
