Member of parliament Emma Theofelus tweeted: 

“ Today, we commemorate a poignant moment in the history of our struggle for independence. Today, we dedicate ourselves to honour fallen heroes and heroines of the #Cassinga massacre that took place in Angola in 1978 during the liberation struggle. We Remember Cassinga, We Remember.”
