Angola: Eugénia Neto Ends Visit to Namibia, Deems It Positive

Windhoek — The chairwoman of the Dr. António Agostinho Neto Foundation (FAN), Maria Eugénia Neto, last Sunday ended her five-day visit to Namibia, deeming it "very positive".

The widow of Angola's first president, António Agostinho Neto, expressed how her visit was well accepted by the Namibian authorities, including the Head of State, the Parliament Speaker, the Prime Minister, and Namibia's former president, Sam Nujoma, to whom she explained the work that the FAN has been doing since its creation four years ago.

In her opinion, this work has enabled to perpetuate Agostinho Neto's memory, a statesman who fought for the liberation of Angola and the African continent.

"He is an example to follow, a recognised value, so people need to be conscious about this personality, so that young people can stimulated to study and search for knowledge aimed at helping the country win", she stressed.

"Angolans should not just think about amusement, but they should work, because this is what he (Agostinho Neto) did when he was young. Therefore, I think we are on the right path and everyone here has recognised it. We've been received with much appreciation", she assured.
