Angola: Maria Eugénia Visits Farm in Honour of President Agostinho Neto

São Tomé — The widow of the first Angolan Head of State, António Agostinho Neto, Maria Eugénia Neto, visited Wednesday the Agostinho Neto farm, situated in the district of Lobata, in São Tomé e Principe.

On her private trip, the widow of António Agostinho Neto used the opportunity to know the old agriculture company, whose name is a homage from the São Tomean people to the founder of the Angolan Nation.

Accompanied by the chairman of the district of Lobata, Hermenegildo dos Santos, Maria Eugenia Neto visited the memorial, a tribute to her late husband, as well as the former hospital, the administration and others that make up the infrastructure.

The Agostinho Neto farm dates back over one hundred years. Initially called "Rio d'Ouro", the project, built in the framework of the Portuguese colonial era, has a length of more than 600 thousand hectares, including the area connected to the administration.
