Cape Verdean PR expresses solidarity for the rains in Luanda

Cape Verdean President Jorge Carlos Fonseca expressed “deep consternation” and transmitted “deep feelings of regret and solidarity” to his Angolan counterpart, João Lourenço, for the torrential rains in Luanda that have already caused dozens of fatalities.


"It is with deep consternation that I have been following the news about the tragic consequences of the torrential rains that have already caused fatalities, thousands of displaced people and immense material damage", Jorge Carlos Fonseca wrote in a message.

"In this moment of sadness and great loss, I present to you, on behalf of the Cape Verdean people and in my own, our deepest feelings of regret and solidarity", concluded the Cape Verdean head of state.

The balance of victims of Monday's torrential rains in Luanda has increased to 24 dead, nine of whom are children, according to data updated on Wednesday by the spokesman for the Provincial Civil Protection Commission.

More than seven hours of intense rain launched chaos in the capital with floods that flooded neighborhoods, destroyed bridges, houses and infrastructure and left thousands homeless.
