Angola: Malanje Governor Calls On Citizens to Live in Communities

Calandula — The governor of the northern Malanje Province, Norberto dos Santos "Kwata Kanawa", last Friday in Kinje and Kateco-kangola communes called on people living in villages and wards of Calandula Municipality to join the communities, so as to avoid dispersion.

The governor was speaking to the populations in the referred localities, in the ambit of a work visit whose high point was the inauguration of medical centres.

According to the governor, the dispersion of the population is causing the appearance of many villages and wards with a very small number of families, thus making it difficult for the government to provide the public services, since many infrastructures are conceived to cater for a lot people.

The governor launched the same appeal in the localities of Kuala and Kota, in Cacuso municipality.

For this intention to be materialised soon and in order for the government to be able to implement public services such as schools, hospitals, roads, water and electricity, Norberto dos Santos appealed to the chieftains to consider taking the people under their control to settle in areas with bigger communities.

In the framework of his work visit, the governor inaugurated in Kuale commune a commune hospital with the capacity for ten beds, the premises of the commune administration and one residence for the commune administrator, as well as a water distribution system.
