The poor state of the roads, the lack of support for the peasants, the improvement of subsidies for chieftains, the reintegration of ex-soldiers and the strengthening of the social sector were the main concerns presented during the audience granted by the President of the Republic.

For example, the king of Tchiyaka, Tchandja V, said he hoped that President João Lourenço will continue to pay more attention to programmes that raise the citizens’ quality of life.

According to the sovereign, the rural areas of the country are the most critical in terms of basic social services and the greatest difficulty is the circulation of goods and services, due to the
degradation of access roads.

The King of Huambo, Armando Chimuco, hopes to see improvements in the situation of the commercialization of products from the countryside, defending the construction of rural markets.

He also said that small farmers need more government support, especially in the purchase of tractors, ploughs, fertilizers and seeds to boost productivity.

To the king of Sambong, Lourenço Kangoma, the lack of small manufacturing industries is the basis of the deterioration of many agricultural products, which has discouraged many peasant families.

The King of Chingolo, António Moreira, manifested also his concern to the Head of State and dissatisfaction with the low subsidies attributed to Sobas (chieftains) and the slowness of the reintegration process of former combatants and veterans of the homeland.

At the end of the audience, the kings were awarded by the Head of State with goods such as motorcycles, refrigerators, cookers, generators, hoes, among others.

João Lourenço has been fulfilling a work programme in Huambo Province since Tuesday.
