An Angolan woman is part of the United Nations Peace Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS). According to the Ministry of Social Action, Family and Women's Promotion, this is the intendant Sarita Domingos Tomás de Almeida who since 30 June has been part of the UNMISS contingent, thus marking Angola's debut in activities of this kind.


The guardianship, in a statement to which VerAngola had access, states that the intendant was "refined in the training of police officers, promoted by the Police Division of the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations, from 14 to 25 February of this year, at the Academia of Ankara, Republic of Turkey".

According to the note, Sarita Domingos Tomás de Almeida is also joined by Chief Superintendent José Valente Pimpão, also an officer of the National Police. Since last June 30th, the two have been part of the UNMISS "staff contingent", where they will complete one year of service.

This fact, according to the authorities, "marks Angola's debut in activities of the kind".
