Angola: Governor Suggests Deep Study On Heterogeneous Reality

Lubango — The governor of the southern Huila province, João Marcelino Tyipinge called for a deep study on the reality of heterogeneous, multicultural and multiethnic of Angola, in order to make the law more comprehensive and ensure better performance of the justice principle in the country.

Addressing a closing ceremony of conference on "The law as a tool of development and social justice," the governor said while speaking of the law one must take into account two aspects; the positive (in the future) and customary (accepted by a large majority of the people).

According to him, the two coexist and make the Angolans to live together in a country of contrasts.

Therefore, the right must meet satisfactorily the whole process of coexistence of the old and the outdated as well as the modern and the emerging new one, he added.

The governor mentioned as example the traditional power. According to him, the traditional power coexists alongside the State, with its

modern institutions supported by positive law, while the other relies on customary.
