The youth wing of Casa-CE plans to organize a protest this month to demand to bring to justice the responsible for the death of their supporter Hilbert Ganga by the Presidential Guard.

The activist was killed by a bullet on the 22nd of November last year by an individual belonging to the Presidential Guard when, with other colleagues, he was putting up pamphlets which announced the realization of a protest.

The Patriotic Youth of Angola (JPA) announced today, 5, that it will execute a series of activities this month, with the highlight of a march on the 22nd of the current, departing from the Estalagem neighborhood in Viana, to reach Santa Ana cemetery, where an outdoor Mass will be carried out, starting at 15 hours.

The march, according to Levergildo Lucas, secretary for Political Affairs for the JPA, is intended to press the authorities to hand over to justice the assassins of Hilbert Ganga.

“We won´t stop to mention the name of José Eduardo dos Santos, the President of the Republic who until now did little to nothing to let the direct culprit of the assassination of Ganga be presented to justice”, he said.

“We, the youth, will continue to fight to make sure the direct perpetrator just as the moral actors of this crime will have to respond in court”, he added.

Lucas admitted, however, there are indications that “the accused will be brought to judicial authorities to let him be tried and we are waiting because we are under pressure from family and the society”.

The journey of the JPA will begin on Thursday and will end on the 23rd of this month under the motto “Ganga – An example of patriotism and courage and an inspiration for the change of regime in Angola”.
