Conflict in spite of ceasefire

IN August 2006 Flec signed a ceasefire and general amnesty agreement with the government. Fighting persisted as some Cabindans regard the ceasefire as a mockery. The Angolan military said fighting continued and blamed "certain armed groups." In response to increased fighting, Flec appealed to the AU 's Commission on Human Rights for intervention.

The government has taken heed of complaints from Cabinda's population about the lack of infrastructure and development in the region and now reinvests 10percent of the province's oil revenues back into the enclave. This is beginning to improve living standards, a crucial element in defusing the conflict. - Sapa-AFP
