Angola: Home Affairs Minister Urges Citizens to Denounce Disruption of Order

Luanda — The minister of Home Affairs, Ângelo Veiga Tavares, on Tuesday in Luanda urged citizens to denounce every situation of disruption of public order and tranquillity in their neighbourhoods and exhorted whoever knows of such act to inform the concerned authorities.

For such, he said, they should use mechanisms of anonymous denunciation, as publicised by public media organs.

The minister said so at the end of the Ministry of Home Affairs Extraordinary Meeting, in the ambit of its Broad Consultative Council that took place on 14-15 January.

The minister urged citizens to exercise their rights with responsibility, including those of assembly and demonstration, having always into account their duties and the rights of others, as well as refraining from behaviours or actions that can disrupt public order and tranquillity.

Similarly, he stated that citizens should contribute to a better awareness of road users, particularly their families and loved ones, including advice to avoid drink-driving, excess speed, violation of traffic rules in order to reduce the adverse outcomes.

He also appealed for greater family integration, stressing that parents should monitor and learn more about the daily activities of their children, conveying to them the principle of respect for others, elders, neighbours and teachers as well as classmates.
