REMEMBERING AQUINO BRAGANZA, A SUPPORTER OF AFRICAN
NATIONALISM: Greg Pirio CEO EC Associates Marina del Rey
California -- Gregpirio at aol.com -- says, "I happened
across the (earlier on Goanet) story about Aquino.  I had the
privilege of knowing the man.  He certainly is a figure of
great historical importance and a very decent human being.
When I headed up the Voice of America's Portuguese to Africa
Service, Aquino helped me obtain a stringer in Maputo and
helped create access to Mozambique's ruling elite.  This
enabled us to provide balanced news and information about
Mozambique at a time when because of its Marxist-Leninist
orientation, the U.S. and Mozambique were suspicious of each
other. Because VOA was able to give fairplay to the
Mozambican government, the Apartheid South African government
targeted me with a disinformation campaign.  My suffering was
nothing compared to Aquino's, who was targeted with a letter
bomb.  He survived that, but Aquino's untimely death in the
airplane crash was a loss to so many of us.  Thank you for
remembering him."
