About The War In Angola
 
A South African liaison officer at Serpa Pinto

The choice for this post fell on Cmdt. W.S. van der Waals. He previously had spent four years with the South African Consulate in Luanda. He could speak Portuguese fluently and knew the country’s inhabitants well.

His duties as liaison officer were varied, and as the war developed, it became more important. He had to personally manage the normal liaison between Brig. Schoeman and UNITA’s military headquarters and Dr. Savimbi. he also had to assist UNIT with planning. One of his first tasks was the establishment of a training base for UNITA soldiers.
