Angola - the cancer of corruption DW Documentary

Although Angola is Africa’s second largest oil producer after Nigeria, the country is one of the world’s poorest nations. [Online until: 02.12.2018] Angola’s billions of oil dollars mainly lined the pockets of the family of President José Eduardo dos Santos, who ruled the country for 38 years. Angola’s new president, João Lourenço, has vowed to fight corruption and help the country’s poorest. But can he keep his promise? Angola is Africa’s second largest oil exporter. Angola began its economic ascent after its 27-year civil war came to an end in 2002, and in 2017, Luanda became the world’s most expensive capital city. But Angola is marred by economic division. Angola’s billions of oil dollars mainly lined the pockets of the family of President José Eduardo dos Santos, who ruled for 38 years. Luanda’s multiplying skyscrapers and glittering facades showcase the wealth of a small, rich elite. While 55 percent of people in Angola are still poor and live on less than one dollar a day. In August last year, President José Eduardo dos Santos announced he would not be seeking re-election due to health reasons. Like dos Santos, his successor, João Lourenço, belongs to the People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA). Lourenço has promised to fight corruption in Angola, and help the country’s poorest. Analysts have already raised doubts about his ability to make far-reaching change, however. Police currently stand accused of sending so-called death squads to kill young people in Luanda’s outskirts. Families are being relocated into tin huts, where they live under shocking conditions. And the country’s health care system is failing, as Angola’s child mortality rate climbs to one of the highest in the world. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Is this about Angola’s corruption problems or DW’s ambush marketing gimmick?

Corruption in angola and its effects to the ppl

Then that part telling us to join them…weell

If you watch you will see how much damage the ruling elites have done despite angola being oil rich country.

Negros are useless and hopeless! The only way Africa can advance is to reduce negro population to 2 million.

@nelo angelo do african president especially wa Angola watch this? How does he feel when he sees his people like this?

Him and his family probably lack empathy.

The bigest problem is not the negro population its the mentality. Majority of African countries are ruled by morons who are only good at wrecking this continent.

True. I saw another documentary stating that only 3000 families Germans were left in Angola. They live in gated communities apertheid style . The rest left only under the condition that they would still be allowed to keep ‘their’ land. So -the 3000 Germans and German multi-corporations effectively run android own 80%-90% of Angola.

Afadhali slums za Kenya, how do you keep four families in one shack like that?? Where’s the human dignity??

Their women are really chewable:p
