Angola: Former Combatants and War Disabled Receive Means of Transport

Namibe — Former combatants and war disabled received Monday twenty motor-bicycles and the same number of tricycles, as well as equal number of books, under the programme of February 4 festivities, National Day of the Start of Armed Struggle against colonialism.

Among the beneficiaries are former combatants, war disabled, widows and war orphans.

On the occasion, the war veteran Martelino Jonas, while reading the thanks message on behalf of the beneficiaries, pointed unemployment as one of the causes that impoverishes this section of the society, especially for those with advanced age, without training and without any instruction.

Jonas Martelino stressed that the help given by the local government should happen in view of the situation of unemployment.
