Angola: Trains and Railways Vandalism Valued At 1 Billion Kwanzas

Luanda — The acts of vandalism registered, from January to October 2018, in the trains and railway line of the Railroad of Luanda (CFL) caused damages estimated at 1 billion kwanzas.

Speaking to journalists the CFL's CEO, Julio Bango, said that the railway company does not have funds for the recovery of the equipment vandalized by the citizens, being "remedied" to be able to put the trains operational.

For the recovery of the wagons and not stop the service of transportation of people and goods, according to the manager, only some recovery actions are done, because there are no values for investments in the CFL.
