The minister reiterated the government commitment to work toward improving conditions of the cultural institutions to cater for the users and disseminating Angolan culture.

The official mentioned the Religious heritage as being among the project, due to its role in the Angolan history.

Many institutions have offered training to several national individuals who contributed to the struggle for national independence, she stressed.

As for the religious phenomenon, Carolina Cerqueira defended attention to the practice, adding that such a phenomenon disrupts the social cohesion and peace among the communities.

There are several sects in the country that promote actions which undermines good customs, against security and against the institutions, mainly the family institution.

The minister defends that crimes committed behind the cloak of religious beliefs should be properly treated by the legal institutions.

Carolina Cerqueira has been in northern Bengo province for a two-day visit to the region.
