The process will cover a total of 2423 former workers from the Lucapa, Luarica and Yetwene mining companies and the Luxinge and Fucauma diamond projects, informed Felizardo Elias, coordinator of the Joint Technical Committee of the aforementioned process, cited in a statement from Endiama, which VerAngola had access.

According to the person responsible, "the aforementioned compensations result from an agreement signed in 2013, between the management of Endiama and the collective of former workers of those companies, with each of them being able to receive a monetary amount that varies between one million and seven hundred thousand and one million and two hundred thousand kwanzas", reads the statement.

"For former workers who intended to permanently resign from Endiama, therefore they are former workers who did not intend to have any other type of relationship with Endiama, the compensation value was stipulated at 1,700,000 kwanzas. This is the value that was assigned for those workers who intended to resign", explained the person in charge, adding: "For those workers who expressed an interest in being reinstated by a project or a mining company to be indicated by Endiama, they could benefit from compensation of 1,200,000 kwanzas while that during the period in which they could be waiting to be included, they could also receive a monthly availability allowance of 120 thousand kwanzas until they are included in the project".

In relation to former workers who have already retired, "a single amount of 1,200,000 kwanzas" was defined, while for former workers who "possibly were in the process of being definitively transferred to the National Institute of Social Security by Endiama (...) would also benefit from compensation of 1,200,000 kwanzas and a monthly subsidy of 42,826 thousand kwanzas until their definitive transfer to the Social Security Fund", he explained.

In addition to these values, the person responsible clarified that "former employees of the companies in question will also benefit from an entrepreneurship project, of their choice, and from a process of awarding scholarships to increase their academic degree, as well as their dependents", reads the statement.

Quoted in the statement, the coordinator left the guarantee that this work will be completed in June of next year, after the "second phase of the registration process for missing former workers".
