Ondjiva — Effectives of the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA)'s second battalion, 61st brigade of motorised infantry of Mucumbuambi, in the southern Cunene Province, last Saturday gained a new barracks, which was inaugurated by the FAA's General Staff Chief, gen. Geraldo Sachipengo Nunda.

The infrastructure has the capacity to accommodate 340 effectives and it was built in an eleven-month period, under the financing of the FAA General Staff.

On the occasion, gen. Nunda said that this exercise aims at guaranteeing dignifying accommodation conditions for the troops, as well as the improvement of the effective's level in the barracks.

He stressed that similar moves will keep taking place with a view to providing the appropriate conditions to the troops in barracks.

On his turn, the governor of Cunene Province, António Didalelwa, stressed that the provincial executive reiterates its support to the FAA effectives, having into account the defence of the country's territorial integrity.

He also reminded that the inauguration of the barracks is part of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA), to be marked on December 17.
