Mbanza Kongo - At least 12,043 Angolan refugees living in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are expected in northern Zaire province, Angola, in coming six months.

The process is part of organised and voluntary repatriation of Angolan citizens living in neighbouring countries.

The information was released Wednesday to Angop by the provincial director of Social Welfare, Madalena das Dores, during which she assured the creation of reception conditions for those refugees.
