Mavinga is a town and municipality in Cuando Cubango Province in Angola.[1] Mavinga is one of the three Mbunda municipalities in Angola, predominantly occupied by the Mbunda under the traditional authority of a Mbunda Paramount Chief Mwene Chondela, who ascribes to the Mbunda Monarch, His Majesty King Mbandu III Mbandu Lifuti restored on 16 August 2008, in Moxico, Angola.

Due to the Mbunda displacement caused by their resistance to Portuguese colonial occupation,[2] and later because of the impact of the Angolan War of Independence (1961–1974), the decolonization conflict in Angola (1974/75),[3] and the Angolan Civil War (1975–2002), the Mbunda territory is now said to be in between the Lunguevungu River to the north and the Cuando Cubango River to the south. This position has tremendously reduced the Mbunda territory but not their area of influence.
