"To the jubilating crowds in Luanda, Savimbi's death signaled the end of one of the world's longest-running civil wars... It is hoped that with the end of the war, resources that were directed towards the purchase of arms could be spent on the socio-economic upliftment of Angola's long-suffering people. However, given the scale of the crisis, this may not be enough.

In so doing, we all assert our collective humanity."
