O Presidente guineense, José Mário Vaz, avisou hoje que deu ordens ao ministro da Agricultura para expropriar campos agrícolas às pessoas que não os querem trabalhar e dá-los a quem os cultive.

"Vou avisar aos que têm bolanhas (campos de cultivo de arroz), mas que não querem trabalhar, que esses lugares lhes serão retirados para dar a quem os quer lavrar", disse José Mário Vaz, num comício popular na localidade de Ingoré, no norte do país, junto à fronteira com o Senegal.
