Angolan Consulate Controls About 10,000 Citizens in Cape Town

Cape Town — About ten thousand Angolan citizens, among students and others, are registered in the Angolan General Consulate in Cape Town, South Africa, ANGOP learnt from a diplomatic source in this South African city.

The consul, Apolinário Pereira, interviewed by ANGOP soon after watching the kick off of 39 sailors, including two Angolans, who are participating in the cross Africa to South America competition, said that sometimes it is difficult to have the absolute control, since some citizens have not collaborated with the registration process.

On the other hand, said the diplomat, the Consulate has been making effort in seeking solutions to solve the problems which affect the Angolan communities in Cape Town, having stressed that the Angolan Government has been making joint efforts with South Africa and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), in issues related with voluntary repatriation of refugees.
