The President of the African Development Bank Group, Donald Kaberuka, arrived in Maputo on Sunday for his first official visit to Mozambique, from South Africa where he participated in a progressive Governance Summit.

In the Mozambican capital, Mr. Kaberuka on Monday visited a water supply project financed by the ADB.
