Dundo - The organised repatriation of the 4,000 refugees settled in Lóvua shelter centre, eastern Lunda Norte province, initially scheduled for 18th September this year, was postponed sine die at the request by Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
The fact was confirmed on Thursday by the head of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Office, in Lunda Norte, Daniel Roger Tam.
The UNHCR official told Angop that the decision owed to the lack of reception conditions in the provinces of Kassai and Central Kassai in DRC.
Dundo - The process of voluntary and spontaneous repatriation of refugees from the DR Congo, who were sheltered at the Lóvua camp, in the north-eastern Luanda Norte Province since May 2017, has ended with the return home of about 14,724 Congolese citizens.
The voluntary repatriation process started last August 19, when a group of refugees unilaterally decided to return to the country of origin voluntarily and spontaneously.
The 11,910 refugees are part of the bulk settled in Lóvua shelter centre, Angola's eastern Lunda Norte province, who unilaterally decided to return voluntarily and spontaneously to their home land (DRC) on August 19.
Speaking to the press, at the end of his 72-hour working visit to Lunda Norte province, the official regretted the condition of the refugees stranded in that locality, waiting for the Congolese government to create transport conditions for distribution to their respective areas.
Dundo - The Secretary of State for Social Action, Lúcio de Amaral, traveled this Tuesday to the border of Tchicolondo, Cambulono municipality, in the course of his working visit to the province of Lunda Norte, to verify in loco the transition conditions of Congolese refugees.
These are the refugees who were settled in Lóvua camp, Lunda Norte, who on 19 August decided unilaterally to return to their country of origin.
Dundo - Refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo based in Lóvua camp, who have decided to stay in Angola, have the support of the Angolan Government, according to the agreement reached at the tripartite meeting between Angola, UNHCR and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
The information was released Thursday in Dundo, by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) representative in Angola, Philippa Candler, at the end of a meeting with Lunda Norte governor Ernesto Muangala.
Dundo -At least 5.379 refugees have returned to Central Kassai province in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), as part of voluntary and spontaneous repatriation started on February 19.
The process is underway with the support of the Angolan Government.
To ensure the speed-up of the process, the Angolan government increased to ten the number of trucks that continue to transport refugees who have voluntarily decided to return to their home country.
Dundo - Exactly two years ago (2017), the Republic of Angola reached out to 35,000 refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), welcomed in Lunda Norte province, due to the extreme and widespread violence caused by political tensions in their country.
It was undoubtedly the largest migratory movement of DRC citizens towards Angola, according to official data from the authorities of both countries and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
