About The War In Angola
 
Jau, Humpata and Kilometre 16

From João de Almeida, Sá de Bandeira can be reached via two routes. The main road runs through Rio Grande about 40 kilometres further, and the other route leads via Jau and Humpata with another alternative via Huila. While the task force stent the night at Tchibemba, Colonel van Heerden heard from refugees that there were also MPLA forces present in these towns to the left of the main route. He therefore ordered Battle Group Alpha to, immediately after the capture of João de Almeida, advance further with two troops of armoured cars and to clear the enemy from the mentioned towns before joining the main force again for the attack on Sá de Bandeira.
