Query: Guinea-Bissau, relations with Czechoslovakia and Sweden in the 1960s and 1970s

Does anyone know people from Guinea-Bissau who studied in Czechoslovakia in the 1960s or 1970s? People who met Czechoslovak agents in Conakry or elsewhere in Africa during that time? Maybe you know someone who knows someone? I would like to interview them about why they went and their experiences in Czechoslovakia or what they learned from the Czechoslovak agents. I have a short questionnaire that I would like to send them through the internet or otherwise. It would have to be in English, German, or Czech. (I also speak some Russian and I can read it but not write). I am also looking for people from Sweden who have either visited Guinea-Bissau (1960s and 1970s) or who have met someone from Guinea-Bissau in Sweden during this time period. I am working on a project studying the bilateral relations between these countries during the Cold War but specifically during the years of the liberation war, and I am trying to find people who actually lived it or came in contact with those who did.
