Speaking on the theme "Angolan media system vis-à-vis civil society", in the cycle of lectures held by the Ministry of Social Communication at the Center for the Training of Journalists (Cefojor) in Luanda, the professor appealed to public media professionals to continue to serve the public interest and to focus on investigative journalism.

As for civil society, Fernando Pacheco regretted that the traditional authorities continue to be dependent on the government, instead of being autonomous bodies in their localities.
Faced with this scenario, the teacher advocated the need for traditional authorities to exercise their true functions and not just depend on the government.

On the other hand, the journalist Ismael Mateus, who addressed the theme "Independence, contradiction and objectivity in political coverage", encouraged the media to focus on responsible, free and pluralistic journalism, capable of demonstrating the country's reality throughout its diversity.
