Angolans form local association

Solwezi,  June 10, 2013, ZANIS….. Angolan Consul General in the north western province Antonio Alberto Sawimbo has urged Angolans living in the area to organize themselves and take keen interest to know what is happening back home.

Consul gen Sawimbo said there must be interaction between Angolans themselves wherever they are living so that they do not lose the link with home .

He said the interaction will also help them keep abreast on a number of developments  taking place back home in Angola.

He was speaking in Solwezi over the weekend during the launch of an Association dubbed “Angolans and Friends of Angola”.

Consul  gen Sawimbo said once Angolans living in the province get organized it will be easy for them to identify their problems and find common solutions.

He explained that there have been a number of unpleasant cases where Angolans only surfaced when they encountered problems such as sickness, illegal stay and sometimes imprisonment.

The Consul gen encouraged the Angolans living in the province to familiarize themselves with his office in order to legalize their stay in Zambia.
