Angola: Home Affairs Minister Praises Professionalism of Law Enforcers

Luanda — The minister of Home Affairs, Angelo Veiga Tavares, on Tuesday in Luanda praised the high level of professionalism, dedication and courage shown by the staff of his department during the festive season.

In his message of praise, which ANGOP had access to, the government official stresses that the effectives that were deployed to secure the festive season "showed courage, competence and determination (...)".

The note goes on saying that the minister hails these brave men and women who, even without being able to enjoy the season, managed to stand out and show their value with their work, thus helping the citizens to have good festive moments.

On the statement, the minister recognises that the mission had its success partly due to the help of the population, above all, whose behaviour of civility was commended.

It also highlights the role played by the media, primarily by raising public awareness through helpful advice on the necessity of adopting a civic and orderly conduct.

This praise is also extended to all officers, sergeants and soldiers of the Angolan Armed Forces, the members of the Intelligence Services and Homeland Security and even the staff of private security companies, who provided their cooperation in actions to maintain order and public tranquillity.
