Foreign Minister says the situation of the UCKG does not affect Brazilians in the country

Foreign Minister Téte António said this Monday that Brazilian citizens in the country should remain calm, as Angolans feel in Brazil.


Téte António, who this Monday had a meeting with the Brazilian Ambassador in Luanda, Paulino Franco de Carvalho, spoke to the press about the differences between Angolan and Brazilian bishops and pastors of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UCKG), since the end of 2019, which rekindled last June, with the takeover of most of the temples by the religious of the African country.

According to the head of Angolan diplomacy, the incidents that took place are being dealt with in their own forum, that is, justice.

"Let's leave justice (work). It is inside a church, so it could be the A or B church. This time it is this church that is in question. Let's let the crisis be dealt with at this level and the aspects that are within the competence of justice, will also be dealt with at this level", said Téte António.

The minister stressed that "Brazilians, like Angolans in Brazil, have always felt at home".

"This is the spirit that should continue, to feel at home, and that the incidents in one of the sectors of our society will not, in any way, change the way we have always treated our Brazilian friends", he stressed.

In June this year, Angolan bishops and pastors took over the leadership of the UCKG, for not agreeing with the Brazilian management, whom they accuse of the practice of currency evasion, money laundering and racism, as well as vasectomy (chemical castration).

In December 2019, the Angolan Attorney General's Office initiated two criminal proceedings against the UCKG, based on accusations made by at least 300 Angolan pastors.
