  • "mealies" at the end of Para 2 IS the correct word, it refers to corn or maize.

    "Silverporto" should read Silva Porto (an Angolan town now known as Kuito).

    Final line - its Kwango River, not Kwando. (Kwando also needs changing on Line 6 of third Para).

  • Thanks for these - can anyone confirm the spelling of "Koemba".
