Exemplary Leadership- Practice what you preach
First and foremost, i would like to say that CECA is not representative of the Angolan Community in Cape Town and even less of the Angolan students as they claim.

This is an organization that only does protests and nothing else.

CECA's leadership is unorganized and it reflects somewhat an authoritarian style of leadership.

Why do i say that?
because, they do not convey meeting with the people who want to protest, they decide everything and only sms people to come and protest, no input from other people other than their own, that in itself is red card for the cause they seek to fight for.
My Advise for CECA's Leadership:

Practice what you preach- change must begin within your organization, you cannot fight for democracy while you practice authoritarianism.

You need to be organized and have a strong base in the Angolan community, Angolan community deserves more than just toying-toying.

Congress of students & Angolan Community (Which is referred as C.E.C.A throughout the document) is an Angolan organization founded on 17 march 2004, with headquarter in the Republic of South Africa in the province of western Cape, it is an independent and non governmental organization based on development of Angolan masse, which brings together on its organizational structures, Angolan citizens without discrimination, educational level, gender, ethnic Origen, religious faith or place of birth. Some of our mission is to promote and to preserve the spirit of patriotism and combat all form of abuses and human right.
In reality we the people of Angola still live in fear in our own country and targeted by our own government, since 1975 when Angola became independent from Portugal.
1979 Mr. Jose Eduardo Dos Santos replaces the Angolan president, Dr: Agostinho Neto and declare one part state using all form of oppression and repression, controlling all the media and others public institutions.
Angolan people are sick and tired of bad governance and theft of public funds, natural resource, nepotism, human right abuses, and illegitimacy of the president (32 years ruling). Corruption and bribery every day takes place among states officials, who continuously lying to the poor that there is no money available to improve their living conditions.
Journalism is a risky business these days and the risks are roughly proportional to the Angolan Regime. As the government military machine campaign to intimidate the people. Since January the arm force and police have been embroiled in what government dubs the last war to keep them in power. Ruling party general secretary came out on state media to warning the people, what will happen if the go out on the street to protest against his government.
Human right watch says the Angolan government, whose leader Jose Eduardo dos Santos has been in power for the past three decades has used intimidation and baseless treats of return to civil war to prevent pro-democracy protests.
It denounced anonymous death threats sent to opposition politicians, human rights activist and journalists; we call international community to condemn arbitrary arrests and the government to listen to the people demands.
For this reason we held protest against our government pacifically (without any sort of violence) at Angolan general consulate in Cape Town, on the 7 March 2011 from 08H00 to 12H00
At the Pavilion 1 floor
Thibault Square
Cape Town.
Your help will be welcomed as matter of urgency. We therefore write to enquire whether you could provide us air time in your News slot so that we make an appeal to Angolan, specially the international community about the many problems that the Angolan people are facing.
It will be sincerely appreciated if you were able to help us in this way.
