Angola: Country Regained Dignity With National Independence - Governor

Kiwaba Nzoje — Angolans regained their dignity and citizenship after the proclamation of national independence, on 11 November 1975, which also brought about the responsibility to build the country and create better living conditions for all.

This was said last Sunday in Kiwaba Nzoje Municipality, Malanje Province, by the provincial governor, Norberto dos Santos "Kwata Kanawa", when delivering a speech at a rally that marked the main local political act in the celebrations of Angola's 37th independence anniversary.

He reminded the public that today Angola is an independent and sovereign country, which is respected all over the world, having highlighted the advances made so far, with special emphasis on the achievement of effective peace (end of the civil conflict) on April 2002.

He pointed out that the independence and peace brought about several socioeconomic benefits, enabling the government to implement various programmes for the improvement of citizens' living standard.

He mentioned the appearance of schools, hospitals, roads and other infrastructures built by the central executive as examples of progress.

Meanwhile, in the framework of the public holiday, several undertakings were inaugurated in Kiwaba Nzoje, such as a water fountain, a municipal market, a recreation and multi-purpose centre, among other infrastructures.
