Caxito — The university lecturer Pedro Capumba defended on Tuesday the preservation of "Pedra de Feitiço" historic site in Soyo city, northern Zaire province, aiming for the valorisation of this important cultural heritage of the country.
Speaking to the press at the end of academic tour paid to Pedra do Feitiço commune by the fourth-year students of history with the pedagogical higher education school of Bengo, Pedro Capumba appealed the incumbent authorities to preserve this site and other historic heritages, aiming to give collective importance of the site.
He said that the students' visit in this locality is extremely important; taking into account the role they will play in the future for the reconstitution of the history, which is needed to be recorded.
The lecturer regretted the fact that the incumbent authorities are not making efforts to conserve these sites and in particular the rock engravings that characterize the archaeological station of "Pedra do feitiço" site. Pedro Capumba said that there are other archaeological sites in the region, but they need to be explored.
