Angola: Secretary of State Urges Recognition of Ex-Combatants

Luanda — The secretary of State for Ex-combatants and Veterans of the Motherland, Clemente Cunjuca, said Tuesday in Luanda the society must more and more recognise the deeds of the fellow-countrymen who gave their lives for the independence of Angola.

Speaking at a lecture on the Ex-Combatants and Veterans of the Motherland Day, the secretary spoke of the need for the new generation to research more into the process that led to the independence of the country.

He also spoke of the need for more attention to the ex-combatants, as they did their best for the country to become free from the colonial oppression.

Clemente Cunjuca recalled that for years the country went through a process of liberation struggle, hence the need for the society to know the process that involved many fellow-countrymen.
