  • Description

    The leader of the rebel guerrilla group, the National Union for the Total Liberation of Angola, Jonas Savimbi, called on western countries to identify themselves with his forces in their struggle against the marxist Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA). Three years ago, the MPLA seized power in Angola after a bloody civil war. Since then UNITA forces have been fighting against President Neto's MPLA government. Dr. Savimbi said UNITA had made great progress against the MPLA and what he sees as the Soviet threat to gain control of southern Africa.
