Por incrível que pareça, eis uma imagem duma eleição municipal. Tirada hoje de manhã nos arredores da “cidade” de Cuamba pelo reporter de @ Verdade, Helder Shirangano. Estas pessoas chegaram ao posto de votação às 5h.

As incredible as it seems, this image is of a municipal election! It was taken this morning on the outskirts of the “city” of Cuamba, the second city of Niassa by @ Verdade newspaper reporter Helder Shirangano. These voters arrived at 5am to the polls.

From the sleepy “city” in my dear Niassa province, Mozambique, this has to be the most absurd name for a street. Ever. “Rua Sem Nome 2” which translates as “Street with No Name 2”.

As though “Street with No Name” was not bad enough, the city hall of Cuamba has started a series.

Wondering how many numbers are in the series. Can’t be too many because the place feels like a wild west frontier town.

A one horse town – a horse with no name.

Credit goes to @Verdade newspaper reporter @Shirangano for this provincial gem.
