Angola: Environment Ministry Holds Clean Bay Operation

Luanda — The National Inspection Service of Ministry of Environment is engaged since early this month in a campaign called " Clean Bay Operation" intended to inspect the ships docking at Luanda Port and their contribution to cleaning of the locality.

Speaking to Angop, the deputy inspector of the National Environmental Inspection, Kayosso Cunha explained that eight ships have already been inspected.

From that number, four were fined for failing to present adequate conditions that may protect the products such as fuels and other means that can easily be spilled during the journey, he said.

Mr Cunha, who would not mention the amount of fines imposed, stated that the fine targeted national vessels.

Similar works are also underway in Lobito port, in southern Benguela province, with the same purpose.
