Moxico (Portuguese spelling) or Moshiko (Bantu spelling) is the largest province of Angola. It has an area of 223023 km2, and covers 18% of the landmass of Angola. The province has a population of 727,594 (2014 census) and a population density of approximately 2.8 residents per km² (7.2/sq mi), making it one of the most sparsely populated areas of Angola. The population of the province is in flux; displaced residents have slowly returned to Moxico since the end of the Angolan Civil War in 2002. The war left Moxico as one of the most landmine-contaminated places in the world. The governor of the province is Gonçalves Manuel Muandumba.
Luena is the capital of the Moxico Province, and is located 1314 km from the Angolan capital of Luanda.
Moxico Province was the scene of much guerrilla fighting during the Angolan Civil War. Its long border with Zambia at the east of the province was a base of operations for UNITA and MPLA. As a result, Moxico Province saw many raids by the military of South Africa.
Moxico Province is known as the place where UNITA rebel leader Jonas Savimbi was killed in 2002, signalling an end to over a quarter-century civil war in Angola. Savimbi's body was buried in the village of Lucusse, about 1,000 km south-east of the capital, Luanda, under a tree near where he was killed.
