Angola has just shut up to 34 churches in an operation named Operação Resgate (rescue operation) over an illegal operation in the country.

The national police director for communication, Mr Orlando Bernardo, said 19 churches were shut in Cabinda Province, 11 in Luanda and four in Malanje province for operating illegally.

The government said recently that more than 50 per cent of churches operating in Angola were foreign, mainly from DR Congo, Brazil, Nigeria and Senegal, adding that at least 1,116 of them operated illegally.

The police rescue operation started on November 6 and will run until the end of the year.

The operation aims at restoring the state authority by instituting order in worship, on the roads, fighting unregulated hawking and illegal migrations, among others.

During the operation’s first week, at least 509 people were arrested for several crimes. Three foreign nationals, two from DRC and one from the Republic of Congo, were among those detained.
