Angola: Peasants Hit By Drought Get Oxen

Ombadja — At least 75 heads of bovine cattle were given to 36 peasants, affected by drought in Ombadja municipality, southern Cunene province.

At the handing over act, the provincial governor of Cunene, António Didalelwa, explained that this distribution aims to replace the cattle to the families that lost their former animals due to the drought that hit the region, and improve the living standards of the population.

The restitution of the cattle is part of a programme of the Angolan government with the objective to boost the cattle breeding activity in the region, which will cover all municipalities.
