Crime will increase in Angolan cities, sociologists warn

21 Jan 2024  |  Voice of America
Sociologists and experts warn that crime is expected to rise in Angolan cities due to economic difficulties faced by citizens. Despite police claims that the situation is stable, factors such as public policy execution deficits, financial crisis, and moral values crisis are highlighted as causes of insecurity. Recent crimes in Luanda's Talatona district, including the shooting of sociologist and academic Laurindo Vieira, have shocked society. Experts argue that public safety must be understood broadly, including domestic violence, juvenile delinquency, and road accidents. The lack of police force and material resources, unemployment, family disintegration, substance abuse, and extreme poverty are cited as frequent causes of crime. The economic analysis suggests demographic growth outpacing GDP growth, with implications for employment and social conditions. The year 2024 is seen as challenging but potentially hopeful if investments in non-oil sectors are made to diversify the economy.

Angola: Public policies for social inclusion should be more comprehensive, say disability rights activists

11 Dec 2023  |  voaportugues.com
Activists in Angola are calling for more comprehensive public policies to promote social inclusion and accessibility for people with disabilities. Despite legislative efforts, challenges such as prejudice, discrimination, and lack of accessibility persist. The Federação Angolana das Associações de Pessoas com Deficiência (FAPED) highlights a slowdown in public policies and a lack of law enforcement. Activists like Luísa Mendonça and Adão Ramos emphasize the social barriers and architectural obstacles that contribute to the exclusion of people with disabilities. The government's campaigns for awareness and the support of families are noted, but activists demand more rigorous implementation of policies and better employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

Angolan NGOs maintain united voice against proposed law on their status

13 Nov 2023  |  www.voaportugues.com
A proposed law defining a new statute for civil society organizations in Angola continues to face criticism from NGOs and opposition parties. Three UN rapporteurs have sent a letter to Angolan President João Lourenço warning of human rights violations. The law, if passed in its current form, would impose excessively strict regulation and grant unjustified government control over NGO operations. Critics, including Leonela Massokolo of Mosaico – Institute for Citizenship and Florindo Chivucute, Executive Director of Friends of Angola, argue that the law interferes with civil society's autonomy and risks the emergence of new organizations. The Angolan National Assembly has approved the proposal in general but has sent it to the Specialty Committee for analysis. Both MPLA and UNITA deputies have expressed that the law will not be approved without changes, especially on contentious points. The proposal includes the creation of a supervisory body for NGOs, with the power to oversee their activities and dissolve those that do not comply with established norms.

24 Apr 2022  |  Voice of America
Rafael Morais from SOS-Habitat Acção Solidária criticized the Angolan government for demolishing homes near the new Luanda International Airport without providing compensation or alternative housing, despite the constitutional guarantee of housing rights. Experts like António Gameiro emphasized the need for a legislative framework to support long-term urban development strategies.

Poor management and corruption are Angola's new wars

10 Apr 2022  |  Voice of America
Civic activist Mbanza Hanza and researcher Chocolate Brás criticize the Angolan government for poor management and corruption, which they consider to be the new wars that must be fought for effective peace in Angola. Despite the end of armed conflict 20 years ago, they argue that social peace and improved living conditions have not been achieved, with extreme poverty still prevalent. Hanza suggests that peace in Angola is still in its infancy, with the government's lack of political will and clear objectives contributing to ongoing issues such as hunger and poverty. Brás highlights government irresponsibility in managing key sectors for development, such as education, citing unfulfilled promises of tablets and textbooks for primary school students.

The Conferência Episcopal de Angola e São Tomé (CEAST) highlighted the alarming poverty, unemployment, and social degradation in Angola, calling for a state of emergency due to drought and famine in the south. Reactions to these statements suggest a debate over the church's involvement in politics.

Candeeiro emphasizes the church's role in promoting democracy, respect for law, and private business initiatives.
