    KAKUMBA: "I am John Kakumba, UNITA Deputy Foreign Secretary. What I would like to declare is that the article came in Le Monde after the press conference of M. Georges Sangumba. We are fighting hardly to chase the cubans out of our country. The government of Neto which is in the minority in Angola should make all what they can to withdraw of the foreign forces in Angola, and I speak about the Cuban forces in our country. I shall fight this fight until the Cubans leave our country."
