Cabinda, 29/11 - About 1,000 ex-soldiers of FLEC (separatist movement)and their relatives were on Saturday reintegrated on Saturday, in Buco-Ngoio district, Cabinda province, in the defence forces and in the National Police, well as in the civil society.

Speaking in the ceremony that marked the event, the Governor of Cabinda, José Anibal Rocha, expressed satisfaction with this new development of the peace process which helps pacify spirits for an effective peace in the region.

Aníbal Rocha added that the angolan Government has been searching for more adequate means for the social well-being of the region`s population and consequently their socio-economic and political development.

The representative of the Army Chief of Staff, Admiral, Feliciano dos Santos Almeida, the Chief of Staff of the Angolan Navy, considered positive the thinking of ex-soldiers from FLEC, by chosing a social life instead of staying in the bushes carrying out wrong actions against brothers from the same nation.

He said that Angola needs national unity and cohesion, which aims at encouraging all Angolans from the province of Cabinda (north) to Cunene (south) in the struggle for the reconstruction of the country.

The symbolic act served to launch the Programme of the Government`s Executive Committee, which aims at supporting, for about six months, FLEC ex-soldiers, and their relatives, displaced people and refugees, with food and agricultural tools.

The process will continue to other districts and communes of the entire province.
