Angola: Local Writer Presents Book On MPLA Advantages

Huambo — The Angolan writer Penelas Santanas presented on Saturday in the central Huambo province the second volume of his book entitled "Algumas razões que fazem o MPLA e José Eduardo dos Santos ganharem eleições".

The 200-page book is a reflection by the author on the advantages of MPLA and President José Eduardo dos Santos in winning the next elections in the country, as well as it portrays cultural, political, social and military matters experienced in Angola from the beginning of the colonial regime up to now.
