Lubango - The launch of a literary and arts and crafts exhibition this Friday in Lubango, Huíla, marked the opening of the 98th anniversary celebrations of the first president of the Republic of Angola, António Agostinho Neto, which will take place on 17th of this month.

The three-day exhibition is on display at the Cathedral square and is attended by cultural agents from the local square, including librarians and sculptors.
