The information was advanced on Thursday, to Angop, by the municipal administrator of Cuimba, Simão Kuanzambi.

According to the official, due to the population exodus the villages of Conquela, Luleca, Luzizila, Diuquisa and Banga I, in the Serra de Canda commune, are becoming uninhabited.

"Most of this population is looking for better conditions to live in the municipal headquarters of Cuima," he said.

He admitted that due to difficult access to the Serra de Canda commune, the administrative authorities of Cuimba municipality find it difficult to bring basic social services in the health, education, energy and water sector, among other areas to the local population.
