Luanda — The secretary-general of the Luanda Provincial Association for Carnival (Aprocal), António Oliveira "Delón", on Friday here guaranteed that all the registered carnival groups of this province have received the financial and material means from the authorities, which served for them to prepare their participation in this cultural competition.
