Lubango - Cultural agents of the city of Lubango, Huila province, pointed out this Sunday the need for the reopening of the entertainment market, for the subsistence of companies in this artistic segment.

  • Cultural agents calls for easing of restrictions

With the activities suspended since March of this year, given the outbreak of the first positive cases of Covid-19 in Angola, cultural agents face enormous difficulties for the subsistence of their companies, a factor that jeopardizes hundreds of jobs in the country.

In a statement to Angop, cultural agent Abel Passuca admitted that his show promoting company is experiencing difficult moments since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, for not finding ways to survive.

According to Abel Passuca, due to the crisis, caused by the lack of activities, he had to temporarily lay off ten workers, for not having funds to pay the wages.

He appealed to the authorities to find urgent solutions to open the entertainment market
