*It was only much later after translating and publishing this that I realised who the figure in the artwork was. Uanhenga Xito, an Angolan writer and member of the MPLA (Movimento Popular de Libertação de Angola). You can find the artist, and the original painting, on Cristiano Mangovo’s Instagram page.
