Angola: Border Harmonization Commission Presents Migration Situation of Olupale

Olupale — The Joint Commission of Border Harmonization presented on Monday in Olupale region, south-eastern Kuando Kubango province, the migration situation of this bordering zone with the record of 1.863 Namibians illegally residing in that Angolan locality.

The data were presented by the co-coordinator of the referred commission, police commander of Kuando Kubango province, Commissioner Tomé Laureano Neto, highlighting that these illegal immigrants have 147 children.

Most of these Namibians are peasants and cattle breeders who opted to live in Olupale, fruit of good condition of pasture and existence of water, which differs from the reality of the other side in Namibia.

He said that the technicians were engaged to obtain such data and during three months it was identified the causes of trends for massive illegal entrance of Namibians in Olupale, leading now to make right decision regarding the illegal migration flow in this bordering region.

The multi-sectorial joint commission of border harmonization was established in January in 2012 and it is led by the police commanders of the provinces of Cunene, Kuando Kubango (Angola) and Owangwena (Namibia).

The commission also integrates officials from the sectors of Agriculture, Health, Energy and Water, Education, Assistance and Social Reinsertion.

The ceremony was attended by the provincial governors of Cunene, Kuando Kubango and Owangwena (Namibia), António Didalelwa, Higino Carneiro and Usko Nghaamwa, respectively.
