Two hundred and eighty-one citizens of the Democratic Republic of Congo who resided in Cabinda, left the province voluntarily to return to their areas of origin.

The Yema Border Post, south of Cabinda with the DRC, was the exit point, last weekend, for the 182 adults and 99 minors who lived in irregular migratory conditions.

The press release from the Ministry of Communication, Institution and Press of the Minnt provincial delegation in Cabinda that ANGOP had access to today, Tuesday, June 29, indicates that voluntary departures are also based on the limited business opportunities in informal markets.

Citizens left the province with their belongings and were given specific treatment by the services of the General Tax Administration (AGT), Migration and Foreigners Service (SME) and the Tax Police, as well as the health authorities so that the process runs smoothly at the border from Yema.

The president of the DRC community in Cabinda, Ngalabue Kabuya, reiterated that the process will continue with the registration of all citizens who express a willingness to leave Cabinda voluntarily.
