Artisanal fishermen in Soyo Municipality benefit from boats

Soyo – At least 48 artisanal fishermen in Soyo Municipality, northern Zaire Province, last Friday benefitted from ten boats aimed at boosting fishing activities in the region. The beneficiaries are distributed in four fishermen co-operatives.


The boats delivery ceremony was chaired by the minister of Territory Administration, Bornito de Sousa.


This move happens in the ambit of the Angolan Executive’s strategy in the fight against hunger and poverty.


On a message, the fishermen praised the efforts of the government in regularly providing equipment that are necessary for the development of the fishing activity.  


“We are very satisfied with the gesture of the provincial government. With these boats, we pledge to work harder to increase the levels of fish catch”, reads the note.


In his turn, the Zaire Province director for Fisheries, Fernanda Sumbo Guerra, explained that this act of four boats delivery to the co-operatives of fishermen is just the starting-point in terms of institutional assistance aimed to improve the fishing sector in the region.


The ceremony was attended by the governor of Zaire Province, José Joanes André, and the ministers of General Education and Higher Education, respectively Pinda Simão and Adão do Nascimento.
