Luanda governor says capital needs 1000 new schools

The governor of Luanda province said this Wednesday that the approximately 3,500 schools, of which 800 are public, in the capital are insufficient and that there is a need for 1,000 new schools.


Manuel Homem was speaking at the end of a meeting of the Council of Ministers, guided by the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, dedicated to analyzing the situation in the province of Luanda.

According to the governor, the challenges in Luanda's schools do not involve the increase in school desks, but also the improvement of infrastructure.

The Luanda governor stressed that the State has gradually intervened, admitting that the number of classrooms is still insufficient.

"We are aware of this need and within the scope of this program that we had today, the need to increase the number of schools that Luanda needs was also addressed", he stressed.

"The first indicators we have is that Luanda, to cover the deficit, needs at least up to 1,000 schools. ", he added.

Manuel Homem stressed that there is work that must continue in relation to public schools, in a number of close to 800 establishments of different levels.

According to the governor, the number of schools "is by far insufficient" to meet the population density of Luanda, which currently has close to ten million inhabitants.

"And it is important to emphasize that in this universe of citizens that Luanda has, 40% of citizens are between 0 and 14 years old, which denotes a great challenge for public services in relation to the creation of conditions, not only in the education sector, but also in the health sector, basic sanitation, where we effectively need to intervene and we are directed to work in this direction", he highlighted.

The governor of Luanda said that outside the education system "there must have been between 1.5 million students and 1.9 million students".

A program to equip schools is underway, Manuel Homem informed, to cover the need for desks, a problem that last week led a teacher to organize a march, with students from a school in the municipality of Viana, to ask for this type of school equipment.

"It will continue to be carried out this week, more schools in the municipality of Viana and in the province of Luanda are receiving portfolios. receive these desks to provide greater comfort and convenience to our students", he said.

Following the march, which was repressed by the police, the teacher was arrested.
