Testimony of Maria Mutango
In April 1986 at LUENA ir MOXICO province, ANGOLA over 40 women met for Bible study. We were surprised by the MPLA soldiers, who came and said, God does not exist. Your God grows out of your Bibles — So eat you Bibles.” They forced us to eat our own Bibles. We were crying and some refused They were shot. So we all started running into the bush. Many were shot. I escaped and was later captured and taken to th MPLA command post at Luena, where I was imprisoned for 2 months. The Cuban and MPLA beat us and violated us daily. In July I escaped and walked many days to Jamba, and safety.
Atrocities in Angola
“The Cuban soldiers came and locked people into huts — burned them alive, others—their arms and legs were cut off. They ripped away my baby out of my arms and swinging her by the legs smashed her head against a tree. . .I was pushed into a lorry with other women. Later I was raped by ten Cubans. Those who resisted were stabbed by bayonets.”
