'Son' hits out at Savimbi
Jonas Savimbi: Said to have fathered about 30 children
A man professing to be the son of Angolan rebel leader Jonas Savimbi has made an outspoken personal attack on him - and accused several African countries of complicity with the Unita rebels.
Mr Sakaita believes he has 28 or even 30 siblings, all fathered by the same man.
At one point, Mr Sakaita broke down while recounting the wretched life of one of his sisters, Rosa, and the loss of his mother, who was murdered.
He spoke of another close relative being burned on suspicion of witchcraft.
'Unita is just Savimbi'
Mr Saikata predicted that Angola's civil war would only end with Mr Savimbi's death.
"Unita is just Savimbi," Mr Sakaita said. "Without Savimbi there is no war in Angola."
He said that Gabon, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and the Central African Republic had all supported Unita.
"If Savimbi has a friend in Africa that friend is Blaise Campoare," Mr Sakaita said - a reference to the president of Burkina Faso.
South Africa came under fire for alleged hypocrisy.
"Why do the South Africans help a man who has violated human rights?" Mr Sakaita asked, adding that it was easy to trade Unita diamonds through South Africa.
He also spoke of Mr Savimbi's relationship with Portugal, saying the Unita leader held the Portuguese responsible for his own father's death.
"The real reason why Savimbi hates the Portuguese is because of his father's death. It is nothing to do with neo-colonialism."
But he added that Mr Savimbi's supposed friendship with former Portuguese President Mario Soares was a sham.
Mr Sakaita concluded that his "father" trusts no-one but himself and is terrified of Luanda.
