-We did not find any opposition to Radio Ecclesia extending its signal to the whole national territory.
-We are not asking that the process of the former Vice-President of Angola, Manuel Vicente, be filed, but rather be transferred to Angola.

- The dismissal of Sonangol's Board of Directors was for convenience of service. -The terms of the contract are very harmful to the interests of the State (contract between TPA and Semba Comunicação). - Impunity has contributed to high levels of corruption in Angola. "At least it would be ingratitude if I did not like being President of those who elected me." -The fight against corruption is summed up in two words: courage and determination. - Supervision of the Government acts by the National Assembly is welcome.
