Leoton Mabiala, Engineer and Cabinda Settlement activist, expressed his vision On the ongoing Cabinda issue and its Advocates facing bribery put before them by the regime of Angola.
“ It is so strange and sad when I see Cabindas who have given a lot and sacrificed their lives in this struggle to defend the dignity and honor of our people, but who let themselves be carried away by promises and proposals given by the Angolan regime, which has only as a backdrop the interruption of a glorious struggle of yours.
We, unfortunately, do not learn from the mistakes of others, especially our elders.
The Angolan regime acts like that woman in a ruffian who only comes to destroy your marriage, pretending to be a good woman, promising that you would be happy with her but that after you have ended your relationship with your wife and caused her so much pain, this bandit woman gives up on you, leaving you alone. And you, with so much regret and despair, try to win back your ex-wife, without guarantees of reconciliation.
This is the purpose of the Angolan regime, it is to damage its great struggle, its reputation and political suitability, deceiving you with material goods and leadership in the state apparatus, making you think that you are now one of them and coagitate to go against Your own struggling brothers, but when the urge to use you ends, he turns his back on you, abandoning you and throwing you into the wind of history, without honor, respect, dignity and consideration.
If in fact your struggle is the probable and just cause of the Binda people, remain in your ideals, in your conditions, in your belief that Cabinda has its own distinct identity from any people in Africa and that you need to defend It throughout your life, despite the great difficulties of life that you will be starting.
Let us be strong and united in our common mission, the defense of the greatest good of the people of Cabinda, their self-determination. Only then will we be able to maintain our time and dignity.”
MAY GOD BLESS CABINDA!
