Huila: Armed Forces Staff chief defends higher discipline levels

Lubango – The Angolan Armed Forces (FAA) General Staff chief, gen. Geraldo Sachipengo Nunda, last Saturday in Lubango City, southern Huila Province, said the troops need to continue elevating their levels of discipline and vigilance, with a view to safeguarding peace, national reconciliation and social stability.

Delivering a speech at the main commemoration ceremony of the 41st foundation anniversary of the National Air Force (FAN), the general-officer stressed that this factor (discipline) will boost preventive measures and stimulate the spirit of mission with professionalism.

He said the FAA effectives must continue to solidify their structures so that they can be better prepared to face the current financial constraints and overcome other obstacles.

In view of this, he emphasised, the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA), nad particularly the FAN, must continue to show solidarity with the President of the Republic and Commander-in-Chief of the FAA, since such posture underlies the culture of the military, with values like loyalty, absolute availability and each one’s sense of responsibility.

General Nunda then reminded that for the National Air Force (FAN) to better improve its cohesion and organisational levels needs to obey three pillars, namely discipline, hierarchy and single command.

The National Ari Force was created on 21 January, 1976, by the first president of Angola, Dr Antonio Agostinho Neto, in his capacity as Commander-in-Chief.
