Having managed to catalog Mbanza Congo as a World Heritage Site on the basis of intensive archeology and diplomacy work, Angola tries to do the same with Cuito Cuanavale.

Cuito Cuanavale is a southeastern Angolan municipality that has experienced an unprecedented battle as it is a strategic point to stop the progress of the South African Armed Forces within Angola or the turning point for the expelling of that army from the country.

The outcome of the memorable battle in favor of the Angolan Armed Forces led to the fall of the apartheid regime in South Africa and consequent independence from Namibia.

Previously, South Africa pursued a policy of racial segregation in which blacks and colored did not have the same rights as those of the Caucasian race. It was the only case in the world at the time when racism was backed by law.

Angola's struggle, especially with the Cuito Cuanavale battle, led South Africa to abandon its apartheid policy, giving mankind, at least politically, its dignity.

For its contribution, we work to make this place considered a World Heritage Site.
