Angola: MPLA Official Hails Women's Role in Development

The first secretary of the provincial committee of the ruling MPLA party in Uíge, Paulo Pombolo, recognised on Saturday the role played by the local women in the development of the region and country in general.

Paulo Pombolo, who was speaking at the end of a rally promoted to mark the March Woman activity, said that the work developed in all aspects of life, the woman as mother, wife, worker, seller or official, deserves everyone's recognition.

"My mothers, continue to believe in the role you play in the society. Some of you are head of families, take care of children, providing them moral, civic and spiritual education, while the fathers abandon the homes", recognized the politician.

On the occasion, the official urged the ruling party's Women Wing (OMA) to closely work with street vendors so as to use the markets built for the sale purpose and thus prevent possible accidents with human damages.
