A few days ago one of the most famous Portuguese philosophers and public figures Fernando dos Santos Neves took the floor in Lisbon in the Union of the Capitals of Portuguese (UCCLA). Fernando dos Santos Neves is known as the author of the book “Quo Vadis Angola?” and he also provides humanitarian aid for education sector in Angola. In the aspiration to help the countries of Africa, holding an accurate position to restore strong and independent Angola led to the fact that he was excluded from the scientific community in Paris and Rome. Despite the fact, Fernando dos Santos Neves continues to believe in his purpose and in his speech he insisted that the Community of the Countries of Portuguese Language had to help with developing Angola.
For a long time, the Portuguese philosopher has been supporting the president João Lourenço and this time he also remembered his pursuit to improve life of ordinary Angolans.
“It was not a chance that the last word of John Lourenço, in the speech of the investiture like President of Angola, was a democracy, which is one of the biggest necessities,” – said Fernando dos Santos Neves. He said that only by maintaining democracy and under the leadership of the current president the bright future of Angola can become a reality, for the reason that the new reality is simply necessary because of the overall problems in the country now. He also spoke about the possible help from Portugal, naturally, without any colonial relations.
In response to the speech of Fernando dos Santos Neves the General Secretary of UCCLA, Vítor Ramalho emphasized the undoubted knowledge of Santos Neves in the Angola question. He also mentioned the inevitable changes in Angola as José Eduardo dos Santos, a former president, was replaced by João Lourenço.
