Youth Day in Angola is celebrated on April 14, 2017. Youth Day is celebrated annually in Angola. The date had been chosen in remembrance of Hoji-ya-Henda, once leader of the Armed Forces for the Liberation of Angola. He died in combat during the Portuguese Colonial War in 1968 and became an Angolan national hero. Connecting the Youth Day in Angola with a passed away patriotic hero makes sure that the ideology of Henda will go on and the victims of the war will not be forgotten. The Republic of Angola is located in South Africa with the capital city Luanda.
