Isaías Samakuva was speaking at a public rally intended to present his party’s governing programme to militants, sympathisers and friends in Uíge, as part of a four-day visit to the region.

He said that being education an important sector in the development of the country, a greater attention should be paid to its quality which, he added, required better remuneration and training of teachers.

The politician said the country’s education system needs a reform to secure highly qualified graduates.

On the other hand, Isaias Samakuva also spoke of the need for better health services in the country in order to reduce child mortality.
