"The process is at an early stage, some steps have already been taken, some people have been heard so that the author or authors of these acts can be determined," said Álvaro João, pointing out that the investigations are not, for the time being, directed at a specific person and no one has been charged until now.
Kwanza Sul's governance is also being investigated after allegations have been made on social networks, and two inquiries have already been opened "which are in the legal process and are at the conclusive stage", the same source said.
"If it is determined that there has been any damage to public property, the perpetrators will be held criminally responsible," Álvaro João stressed, promising further developments in the coming days.
The PGR spokesman pointed out that this body has among its duties the power to oversee the financial liability of public bodies.
In recent days, the media have highlighted alleged mismanagement practices involving the governance of Bengo and Kwanza Sul provinces.
On Sunday, the Inspector General of Finance of Kwanza Sul, Rodrigues Eduardo, who was to make a statement in the process involving the governor of that province, Job Capapinha, was murdered in Luanda with a shot at point-blank range, according to Novo Jornal.
The PGR in Kwanza Sul recently confirmed it had opened an investigation into the alleged overbilling of two cars for the provincial vice-governors, valued at over 191,000 kwanzas per day for a period of one year.
According to PGR sources, cited by Novo Jornal, the contract was signed by Job Capapinha, and by a company incorporated in December 2018, owned by a Mauritanian, for car rental.
