Angola: New House Allocation Registration Procedure Announced

Luanda — The deputy governor of Luanda province for Technical Affairs, António Resende, announced Tuesday in Luanda that the Province's Social Housing Programme (PPHS) is being implemented in a different way.

Antonio Resende was speaking in Zango neighbourhood, in the district of Viana, near Luanda, during a meeting intended to inform the public organs of the State about the new Technical Registration for Luanda Urban Upgrading.

He said on the occasion that the province is using a new registration procedure which, he added, is being implemented in a different way, through a fully computerized programme and systems of modern security.

According to him, under the new procedure, people will be identified and registered as displaced, with a digital photo, a biometrical system and all those relocated will have a document preventing them from letting or selling the houses allocated to them.

The official added that the plot tenure regulation states that the beneficiaries will not be allowed to sell or let the houses given to them for a period of time.

He appealed to those living in tents to be patient as the Government is working to relocate them.
