THE information is contained in the INAC report, when it presented the weekly balance sheet for the period from 09 to 15 of this month of September.
According to the head of INAC, Rosalina Domingos, during this period, two children aged between 13 and 10 were expelled from their homes by their parents, in the municipalities of Viana and Cazenga, for allegedly practicing witchcraft.
According to INAC, in the first half of September alone, 394 cases of violation of children’s rights were reported across the country.
“According to the complaint, the children were expelled by their mothers, cases that are already under the daring of the municipal social action directions of the municipalities of Viana and Cazenga”, he said.
Rosalina Domingos also reported that in the same period, between the 9th and 15th of September, two women were arrested for allegedly attempting to traffic their own children.
The incident took place in the municipality of Luanda, in the Casequel neighbourhood, where INAC staff received a report of abandonment and attempted trafficking of newborn children.
According to the official, the mother is a citizen of Congolese nationality, after giving birth, she rejected the baby, claiming that she was not able to, so an alleged nurse took advantage of the fragility of the citizen and tried to sell the child.
INAC says that this attempt was frustrated by the SIC with the help of the hospital unit where the mother was hospitalized.
In the municipality of Kilamba Kiaxi, INAC also received a complaint that refers to a mother, who was selling her own daughter, approximately one year old.
As soon as INAC became aware, it maintained contact with SIC and immediately arrested the citizen.
INAC ensures that the children were taken in in one of the homes in the capital city, and the cases followed their normal procedures.
