The Angolan community in the Mongu in Western province of Zambia are today Wednesday celebrating Angola’s 34th independence anniversary.
The celebrations will include a socialisation dinner that will also assemble senior Zambian government officials, according to Angolan media.
The socialisation follows political, diplomatic, cultural and sport activities carried out by Angolans abroad, as well as visits to border checkpoints.
In this aspect, the consulate general of Angola in Mongu welcomes, in a communiqué, the 34 years of National Independence.
The Zambian western province of Mongu shares its borders with the Angolan provinces of Kuando Kubango and Moxico, one of the bulwarks of the liberation struggle and the conquering of peace.
In the other segment of the communiqué, the consulate general adds that it will soon grant an interview on the Angolan migration phenomenon, a result of a research that started in August 2000.
Most Angolan emigrants in Zambia are dedicated to farming.
Western province hosted thousands of refugees from Angola during that country’ civil war. The repatriation program is still going on.
