  • Description

    One of the three Angolan Liberation movements leaders has called for the new unity plans to be put into action immediately. Dr. Agostino Neto, head of the Marxist Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), was speaking in Kenya on Monday (23 June) before he left to attend the independence celebrations in Moszambique.

    Leaders of MPLA, MFNLA (the National Front for the Liberation of Angola) and UNITA (the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola), agreed in Nakuru, Kenya, to stop violence and work together for unity.

    They further agreed to form a national army, and pledged to free all prisoners and guarantee each other the right to free political activity anywhere in the country.

    Speaking at Nairobi airport, Dr. Neto said he was optimistic about unification of the three movements' armies. He described this as an "inescapable obligation" before Angola gains its independence from Portugal in November.

    Dr. Neto left for Mozambique with a Kenyan delegation, headed by Foreign Minister, Dr. Munyua Waiyaki.

    This film includes an interview with Dr. Neto which is transcribed below.
