  • Description

    Jorge Sangumba, "Foreign Secretary" of UNITA (National Union for the Total Independence of Angola), said in Zambia on Tuesday (10 February) that UNITA forces will establish lines of defence from which they will attack "the Cubans wherever they are".

    He said the struggle in Angola is now really polarised between the Cubans and Russians on one side and UNITA fores on the other.

    Mr. Sangumba declared that even if the Cubans had 20-thousand troops in Angola and divided these among the main towns, it would be impossible for them to control the towns.

    He added that in any case, the people living in the towns are mainly supporters of UNITA.

    UNITA is claiming that it has the support of the three million people of Southern Angola, plus a large proportion of the people in the centre of the country.

    It says this will force the MPLA and its Cuban and Soviet supporters to function as little more than a harassed army of occupation.
