Angola, Namibia to Construct Monuments to Honour Massacre Victims

Angolan President Joao Lourenco and Namibian President Hage Geingob have announced plans to build two monuments in Huíla Province and Chetequera in Angola to honour the victims of the Cassinga Massacre. About 900 Namibian refugees were killed in Angola by apartheid South African troops on May 4, 1978.
