Father Felix Roberto Cubola Kinyumba pressed and says to be outraged about the Angola regime’s ungratefulness in Cabinda. According to the Priest, the situation involving the regime of MPLA in Cabinda is analyzed by the people of that land in the context of a child to a parent whereby the ingratitude of a son or daughter who, after having enjoyed all the benefits of their parents, after having succeeded in life, they ignore and mistreat them. The Priest goes further remembering that the revolution and the struggle for the liberation of the Republic of Angola had Cabinda as a great force of fire and backup, The same resemblance could be seen as that of Judas’ ingratitude towards his Master <Jesus Christ>, says Father Felix Roberto Cubola Kinyumba, a native-born and son of Cabinda.
The Priest Statement was valued and praised among Cabindans advocates including Mauricio Gimbi, the president of Cabindans Union for Independence (U.C.I.) as quoted;
“Father Félix Roberto Cubola Kinyumba is reuniting with Cabinda and reconciling with the cause. it is this Father Cubola that Cabinda deserves.”
The MPLA’s ingratitude towards Cabinda can be like the ingratitude of a son or daughter who, after having enjoyed all the benefits of his mother, after having succeeded in life, ignores and mistreats his mother. But it can also be compared to the ingratitude of Judas to his Master: Christ. The revolution and the struggle for the liberation of Angola had Cabinda as a great force of fire and rear and above all maiombe … The highest dignitaries of the MPLA and as well as the highest rulers such as:
Dr. Agostinho Neto, Engineer José Eduardo dos Santos and as well as the current President of Angola, João Gonçalves Lourenço, the President of the National Assembly Fernando da Piedade Dos Santos, to name but a few, were fed, housed and cared for by the forest mother of the maiombe, with all the sacrifice, self-denial, risk and solicitude of Cabindas. That is why our Parents believed that Independence and self-determination is a just cause for all Peoples. the other. Unfortunately, today we see that “súmula muana mbuendi meeso”, a quote in Ibinda the local tongue standing for “The observation of a Dog’s is understood through its eyes” as the proverb of the wisdom of our Ancestors says.
Nevertheless, just as the MPLA fought for a just cause and won not by force of arms before the Portuguese colonizer, so we must believe that we will get there at all costs. For the reason is worth more than the force. If this is the first reason for our hope, the second is that all ingratitude has its price. The ungrateful son is always cursed, just as Judas was hanged.
As a Christian and a priest, I believe in the Truth and I fight for the Truth until death. Let no one seem hopeless, as the signs of the end of the MPLA are visible. For those who want an exercise, you can compare the similarities of the end of the MPR of Mobuto and current signs of the MPLA to understand. What prophesied Dr. Savimbi is very clear. Savimbi is more alive than before.
