  • Description

    ABOUT 1,600 ANTI-GOVERNMENT RECRUITS FROM ANGOLA ARE UNDERGOING RIGOROUS TRAINING IN ADJOINING CONGOLESE TERRITORY IN PREPARATION FOR RENEWED WARFARE. THEIR CAMP IS LOCATED AT KINKUSU, 90 KILOMETRES FROM THYSVILLE.

    THE TROOPS ON PARADE, THEIR FLAGS, DRUMMER, BUGLER, ARMS, AND ON MANOEUVRES.

    SOME OF THE TROOPS WEAR SANDALS, MANY ARE BAREFOOTED. THEY CARRIED RIFLES, APPEARED FIT AND SHOWED FAIR STANDARDS OF MILITARY DISCIPLINE.

    THE ANTI-GOVERNMENT FORCES ARE CONTROLLED BY DR. HOLDEN ROBERTO'S "PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT." HOWEVER, THE CAMP IS SUPERVISED BY JOSE KALUNDUNGU, WHO HOLDS THE TITLE OF "MINISTER OF DEFENCE." AMONG THEIR NUMBERS IS A GROUP OF SOUTH AFRICANS, WHO ARE EXPECTED TO RETURN TO THEIR OWN COUNTRY AS THE CORE OF A RESISTANCE MOVEMENT.

    REPORTS FROM THE CAMP STATE IT IS NOT ONLY A TRAINING CAMP FOR RECRUITS, BUT A REFRESHER SCHOOL FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY SEEN ACTION AGAINST THE PORTUGUESE IN ANGOLA.
