Mozambique seeks Angolan experience in fighting illegal immigration

Speaking to ANGOP, on the sidelines of a few hours that the National Police of Angola Chief Commissioner, Paulo de Almeida, made to Soyo, Bernardino Rafael, said that, like Angola, his country is also experiencing the phenomenon of illegal immigration, given the vast and complex border that Mozambique has.

He said that Angolan police have extensive experience in the fields of security, public order and border protection, hence their country’s interest in cooperating with local authorities.

Bernardino Rafael said that Mozambique has 4.212 kilometers of the land border line, 2.750 of the maritime border (Indian Ocean) and a vast fluvial border crossing the Ruvuamua River, which delimits this country with the Republic of Tanzania, whose immigration has been a constant.

“We came to seek the experience of Angola in matters related to the surveillance of our borders,” he said.

On the occasion, the police chief praised the results obtained so far by the Angolan police authorities on several fronts with the implementation of the operations “Rescue and Transparency” in progress in the country.

During its stay in Soyo, the delegation verified the combined technological system that involves the installation of cars equipped with a long-range surveillance system, unmanned aerial means capable of flying about 5 hours, communications radios, towers and rooms control in the coastal municipality of Kinzau (Tombocos) and in the municipal seat of Soyo.
