The appeal was launched by the bishop of Our Lord Jesus Christ in World (Tocoista) Church, Afonso Nunes.

Nunes was speaking at a press conference on Tuesday aimed at presenting the celebration programme  to mark the centenary of the Church's founder, prophet Simão Gonçalves Toco.

He said that fight against violent crimes must begin within the families.

Afanso Nunes decried that many parents have ceased to play their role by failing to paying due attention to their children in terms of education, making them vulnerable to negative influences.

He also pointed out the lack of employment for youth and improving policies that encourage entrepreneurship as other causes of the high rate of violent crimes that have occurred in recent times.

In order to reverse this trend, the religious leader called for repatriation of Angolan capital abroad and overhaul in the banking system.

According to him, the repatriation of the capital will enable investing in the country to create projects and jobs.
