Council of Ministers approves increase in salaries of military and police by around six percent

Salaries for the military and police will increase by around six percent. The decision, taken this Wednesday at the first meeting of the Council of Ministers, thus fulfills the announcement made by João Lourenço last week, in his investiture speech, where he promised to improve the salaries of the military “in the first days of entry in the operation of the executive”.


According to a note from the Presidency of the Republic, to which VerAngola had access, the salaries of members of the Armed Forces and the National Police "were increased, essentially, by six percent but there were some higher increases (up to 14 percent) for cases of staff earning wages below the national minimum wage".

This approval, the statement said, allows "those contemplated to receive from now (if any procedure is delayed, in October) their salaries", already mirroring the increases, "plus the retroactive ones that count from last June".

The note states that this is "the first major decision" taken at the first meeting of the Council of Ministers of the new mandate, guided by João Lourenço, "thus fulfilling the announcement made by the Head of State less than a week, in his inauguration speech in Praça da República".

In his inauguration speech, João Lourenço also announced the improvement of the conditions for quartering the troops, as the "next step on the march", according to the statement.
