Demonstrators protesting non- delivery of promised housing blocked the Avenue des Martyrs on Friday, August 24.
Chanting "We do not want more lies" they demanded the government provide them with housing they were promised when they were evicted from Curundú last year.
According to the demonstrators the Ministry of Housing and Land Management has not given them homes, and they currently live in a building on Avenue des Martyrs.
A representative of the Ministry of the Presidency who arrived at the scene said that at this time 50% of the promised homes should be complete. The project was tendered and countersigned by the Comptroller so “why close the street?” He said the comptroller would confirm that the housing project where they will be relocated has been endorsed,
