Sérgio Rescova was speaking Wednesday in Dondo, northern Cuanza Norte province, during a meeting with local youths.

The meeting that went with the theme “Youths and patriotism – their participation in the development of Angola”, as part of Sérgio Rescova’s few hours visit to the region, under the party’s pre-campaign towards the forthcoming 23 August election.

He stated that Angola’s affirmation as a nation is the result of a long road that cost the sacrifice of many of its children during the process of decolonisation of the country that led to the proclamation of the national independence on 11 November 1975.

The JMPLA secretary recalled that imbued with a revolutionary spirit, a group of nationalists without conventional firearms started the armed struggle for national liberation, which eventually led to the end of oppression Angolans were subjected to.

The meeting was attended by members of the Parliament for the local constituency, Government and the  MPLA’s first provincial secretary, José Maria Ferraz dos Santos.
