Angola: October 21, 1999


The Angolan government offensive continues. A government spokesman announced the capture of the cities of Andulo and Bailundo, in central Angola. Andulo was a major UNIT stronghold and a headquarters for UNITA's leader, Jonas Savimbi. The spokesman also claimed the Angolan government also controls Mussende and Tembwe (Cuanza-Sul province); Londuimable (Huambo province); Cangamba, Luwawu, Luakanu, Lumbalanguimbi in the Moxico province; Kalandula and Kalussengue (Malanje province). If this is true then the MPLA has made great progress in its war against UNITA. The key remains destroying Savimbi's leadership cadre and denying UNITA profits from the mining centers it controls in Angola, particularly the diamond mines.
