The official was speaking to Angop during the book release ceremony at the Catholic University of Angola, in the presence of ecclesiastical entities, members of the executive, parliamentarians, among other personalities.

According to Carolina Cerqueira, the work is the literary heritage that Dom Alexandre do Nascimento leaves to the nation, as a reflection on his life and experiences.

The member of Parliament, Monteiro Kapunga, also told Angop that he has only learned on the occasion that the Cardinal Dom Alexandre do Nascimento also suffered political persecution by the Portuguese colonial authorities, due to his desire to see Angola free.

Bishop Alexandre do Nascimento was born on March 1, 1925, in the central province of Malanje, and is the only Angolan Catholic cardinal.
