Angola: Faa Orders Enquiry Into General Wala's Public Brawl

Luanda — An enquiry has been ordered into the circumstances surrounding an incident in which lt.-general Simão Carlitos Wala got involved in a brawl with a woman in a public place on 28 February.

This was announced Wednesday in Luanda by the General Staff of the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA) in a note.

In its note, the FAA General Staff says the enquiry has been ordered by the Higher Council of Military Discipline, as it is a public matter that deserves clarification.

The note says the FAA enjoy a sound relationship with the people they originate from and will continue to defend the legitimate interests of the Nation, including the right to justice.

The General Staff calls on the society to remain calm and not get carried away by social media speculations.
