"I wish to extend to Your Excellency, the Government and the fraternal people of the Republic of Angola our warmest felicitations and best wishes on the occasion of the 44th anniversary of your independence," Hengari quoted Geingob as saying.

"We join our brothers and sisters in Angola, with whom we share an eternal kinship, in celebrating this momentous occasion. As we propel our countries towards prosperity, I look forward to continue to work with Your Excellency in deepening our historic relations, characterized by enhanced cooperation in areas such as trade, investment and people to people exchanges."
