According to a Voice of America (VoA) article published on September 4th, 2019, a major oil spill hit the sea in the Angolan Cabinda province and left many fishermen without much activity.

It is yet another major oil spill with consequences for the Angolan fish industry.

Fishermen are unable to go fishing and are concerned that local authorities have not set up specialized teams to collect oil waste in the worst affected areas.

A delegation from the multinational Chevron and the Ministry of Environment has visited the hardest hit sites but has yet to comment on the source and consequences of the spill.
