Luanda — A march in the ambit of the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, marked on November 18, was held in Luanda last Sunday and attended by over five hundred people.
On the occasion, the Angolan minister of the Interior, Angelo de Barros Veiga Tavares, appealed to the general public to become aware of traffic accidents, which have claimed countless lives, causing a high number of casualties.
He noted that during the period of January to October this year, almost four thousand deaths were recorded countrywide as result of car accidents, exceeding the statistical data of last year.
During the march, participants laid wreaths on the statue of the driver, and on 12 o'clock observed a minute of silence in memory of victims.
Canon Apolonio Graciano uttered a prayer for the souls of all the victims of road accidents that occurred in the country.
