Angola: Culture Ministry to Create Multidisciplinary Museum in Oihole

Ondjiva — The Culture minister, Rosa Cruz e Silva, said Tuesday in Ondjiva City, southern Cunene Province, that the sector has the intention to create a multidisciplinary museum, at Oihole Tourism Complex, in memory of King Mandume-Ya- Ndemufayo, which will have this region's artefacts and a library.

The minister, who was speaking during a meeting with members of the local government, said that while it is not possible yet to pay homage to other kings of southern Angola, there is a need to create a bibliographic space on Mandume to put all this information linked to the resistance of that of this part of the national territory, in which the last sovereign was Mandume, king of the Kwanyama people.

The minister said that this is an opportunity which the Ministry, in partnership with the province's government, offers to increase knowledge on this great figure of the country's history.

However, he said, there is information gathered from the archives of Namibia, including pictures and documents illustrating documents stored at the National Archives, but there are more documents around the world, specifically in England, Germany, South Africa, Namibia and Portugal that need to be divulged.
