Caxito, 02 July, 2023 / 3:50 pm (ACI Africa).
Bishop Maurício Agostinho Camuto of Caxito Diocese in Angola has faulted citizens of the Southern African nation who downplay the education and health facilities in the countries.
In his homily during his pastoral visit to St. John the Baptist Parish of his Episcopal See, Bishop Camuto challenged “those who have money” to consider Angolan head and education institutions.
“We have built great hospitals, but we are seeing that those who have money to treat themselves go outside; when our leaders, politicians and others are sick, they don't go to Capalanca or Cardinal Don Alexandre hospitals; they go outside,” he said during the June 25 pastoral visit.
The Angolan member of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit (Spiritans/Holy Ghost Fathers/CSSp.) underscored the need for Angolans to invest in their country’s institutions.
“We should all be treated here; our children should all study here, so we would be concerned with making good schools and training good teachers, good doctors, because we can have good hospitals equipped with good machines,” he said.
