Angola: Acting Governor Considers February 4 Glorious Day

Menongue — The acting governor of Kuando Kubango Province, Ernesto Kiteculo, on Monday considered the 4th of February (1961) a glorious date, since it is commemorated as the beginning of National Liberation War against colonialism, because it paved the way for the achievement of independence and subsequent resistance against external invasions and military aggressions.

Speaking at the main political act, held in Menongue City, capital of Kuando Kubango, the official also justified that 4th February is a glorious day because from that it was possible to defend the national sovereignty, territorial integrity and peace.

Ernesto Kiteculo stressed that the act takes us to a profound reflection on the current conduct, behaviour and responsibility to face the enormous challenges, to honour the facts and perpetuate the memories of 04th February and all those who have fought for the achievement of peace, dedicating themselves to the patriotic spirit in materialization of various projects and programmes, in order to develop Kuando Kubango.

The acting governor said also that the government approved Kuando Kubango's special programme of development, which will provide opportunities, especially the creation of basic infrastructures, roads, bridges and every other means which allow better governance, as well as improving the population's living standard and, consequently, the increase of jobs for the youths.
