The political leader, who was speaking at a press conference, stressed the need for the Head of State, João Lourenço, to present, in his message, policies to solve the problem of drought, as well as government programs and models aimed at leveraging the economic and social development of the country and at the same time restore confidence and security to the Angolans.

Among the provinces in southern Angola, Cunene is the hardest hit, as it has been experiencing, since October 2018, the most severe drought in its history, which has left more than 800,000 families and more than one million cattle on the brink of death.
