Pastor Afonso Justino Waco from Cabinda and a member of ACC, in reaction to the latest military clashes taking place in Cabinda, stated that the ACC shares the same pain and experience as other political movements in Cabinda that want the dialogue to resolve the existing political-military conflict based on a diplomatic approach
Regarding the sad information, I must say that the ACC will never remain indifferent to any barbarity, injustice, or violation of the rights of any citizen. What the ACC should not do is make mistakes that might discredit the organization’s reputation. From yesterday to today, I was having doubts about whether the murdered citizens were Cabindan or Congolese. It is an important fact for the correct statement of an official nature. With the information read above today, it is known that these are Congolese citizens. However, that does not take away the ACC’s obligation to react, because these citizens were savagely murdered because of Cabinda. In view of this situation, the ACC’s statement should be directed more towards inducing the permanent insecurity in the region due to lack of peace in Cabinda. An interposition to the three leaders who converge in the enclave – DR Congo, Republic of Congo, and Angola, to take this spinous problem that they ignore seriously.
