This is a significant amount of food, medicine and clothing for the Congolese people after the catastrophe in the neighborhood of Mpila (Brazzaville), which killed over two hundred people and injuring many others.
The Prime Minister and Head of Government, Ignacio Milam Tang, personally coordinated the sending of this aid on Sunday, March 11, seconded by Deputy Vice Minister in Charge of the Economic and Financial Sector, Aniceto Ebiaca Mohete and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation and Francophone Affairs, Pastor Micha Ondo Bilé.
– “The humanitarian aid we send to Congo“, recalled the Head of Government to the main importers of consumer products, meeting in prior session at the regional delegation of Foreign Affairs of Bata, “is a show of solidarity that responds to the humanitarian nature that has always characterized the President of the Republic, H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who, as he has done in the past, has again shown solidarity when learning of the death and injury of several persons, and the significant damage in Congo, last Sunday, following a series of explosions in one of its ammunition depots“.
Late Saturday afternoon, the Head of Government went to the Bata airport to witness the loading of the first national cargo plane that left early Sunday morning bound for Brazzaville, transporting essential and necessary items consisting of rice, milk, water, medicine, clothing and medical equipment for first aid.
The nearly four hundred tons of humanitarian aid that our country sends to the neighboring Republic of Congo are in the charge of an official delegation headed by Delegate Minister of Health and Welfare, Tomas Mecheba Fernandez, accompanied by the Secretary of State for Consular Affairs, Angel Mokara Moleila.
On Sunday afternoon, the Prime Minister returned to Malabo where he was greeted at the airport by some members of his government, led by the Minister of State in Charge of Internal Affairs and Local Corporations, Clemente Engonga Nguema Onguene.
