The provincial governor of Malanje, Norberto Fernandes dos Santos "Kwata Kanawa," presided over the transfer ceremony of the said soldiers, who will be distributed among the 14 municipalities of province, considering the decision as a patriotic attitude.

In this regard, he stressed the need to strengthen interaction with communities in order to reduce crime rates in the province, while advising the permanent improvement of military techniques and tactics to address the challenges of the moment.

On the other hand, the provincial delegate of the Ministry of Interior, Commissioner António José Bernardo, recalled that the transfer of the ex-FAA staff to the Police was based on the will of each of them, since they understood that they could give their aid for the sake of national stability and security .

The defense of the populations and their property, as sovereignty, is an aspect that should be taken into account by the troops, by fulfilling the missions in a spirit of loyalty and compliance with the laws in force in the country, he said.

Colonel Manuel Yembe, on behalf of the commander of the first Corps of the Army, appealed to those newly incorporated in the National Police for the discipline, in order to preserve the effective peace that the country has been experiencing for 15 years.

The act was witnessed by entities from the Interior Ministry and FAA, as well as by members of the local government.
