This recognition was made during a visit by members of the MPLA Political Bureau to the facilities of Radio Kairós, Methodist University and the Christian temple, located in Ingombota district.

Luísa Damião stated that MPLA is pleased with the contribution made by the Methodist Church to the country, since evangelization, health, social action and education, having as evidence the more than 10,000 students attending this academic year.

The party leader encouraged continued ties to identify the many problems that affect the people, so that together they could find solutions to the different problems.

She also congratulated the church for the research and innovation work carried out by the university's staff, which was awarded in Nuremberg (Germany) at the 71st edition of the International Fair of Ideas, Inventions and New Products.

According to the official, when we are facing the academic community, we seek to constructively dialogue about the need for an increasingly active intervention by the university in the country's development.

The vice-president also argued that we must continue to seriously focus on the quality of education, in order to train the staff well, equipping them with competence and skills to meet the challenges facing the country in the future national and international context.

Bishop Gaspar Joao Domingos of the Methodist Church thanked the vice president for her words and said that all the congregation does it for the greatness of the Angolan people.

The Methodist Church, according to the bishop, has always had a liberating mission, with people who fought for national independence, such as Agostinho Neto, Deolinda Rodrigues and Hoji Ya Henda, among others.

The vice president also handed over eight computers to the church board to support Methodist University students.
