Tucker family wants to collaborate with Malanje in the fields of education and infrastructure

The Tuckers – an American family descended from the first Angolan slaves to arrive in the United States of America (USA) – intend to collaborate with the Provincial Government of Malanje in the areas of education and infrastructure, aiming at the growth of that province, said Vicent Tucker, president of the African-American Society William Tucker 1624.


In addition to the sectors mentioned, the official said that trade is also in their sights, indicating it as another area in which closer relations are intended, without neglecting social values with a view to the successive reunification of the family with the Angolan population, writes to Angop.

Speaking this Sunday, within the scope of a meeting between the Tuckers and Marcos Nhunga, governor of Malanje - which took place as part of the "Angola Heritage Tour", which includes Luanda, Malanje and Cuanza Norte, with a view to recognizing likely areas of collaboration in the regions of their ancestors -, underlined that it is "essential" to strengthen relations as they are "one people, one family" and need to reunite.

"It is essential that we fortify our relations, because we are a people, a family and we need to reunite", he said, quoted by Angop.

He also took the opportunity to leave an invitation to Marcos Nhunga to visit the US with the aim of promoting the presence of Angolan investors in that country and also to get to know the history that the two peoples share.

Marcos Nhunga also took the opportunity to invite the family: to invest and attract investment to the area, with emphasis on tourism and agro-industry, writes Angop.

After the meeting, according to Angop, the delegation made up of 19 people (friends and members of the Tucker family) went to Pedras Negras do Pungo-Andongo, among others, having the visit culminated in the inn of Calandula.

According to Angop, this is the third time that the Tucker family has visited Angola, with the first visits taking place in 2019 and 2021.
