Angola reforms open Pandora’s box : Curbing corruption toward national development

Angola is a vibrant mineral rich country in Southern Africa whose varied terrain encompasses tropical Atlantic beaches, a labyrinthine system of rivers and Sub-Saharan desert that extends across the border into Namibia. The country’s colonial history is reflected in its Portuguese-influenced cuisine and its landmarks including Fortaleza de São Miguel, a fortress built by the Portuguese in 1576 to defend the capital, Luanda. Since the ushering in of a new dispensation after 37 years of the Dos Santos iron fist, the new regime has come as a breath of fresh air to investors, regional counterparts and the world at large as it had been marred by corruption and scars from civil war.

However the new president and his team have their work cut out for them as it has been established that resistance from the old guard  and cronies that took the bustling economy as personal entities, looting billions of dollars, establishing empires and becoming economic moguls funded through Angola’s state coffers have led to illegal and unorthodox means to disguise and hide looted national assets and funds. It has come to our attention ( source verified ) that there is a plot to create instability and chaos in the country through sabotage and hit squads paid to make it impossible for the task toward eliminating corruption and instability to succeed, there are many reasons why one would go to such lengths considering the measures taken recently as active measures to clean the image of a nation that has the capacity to spur regional development.

The new Angola, an infected nation by corruption and dangerous nepotism, saw the new government to return the assets and stolen national interests contracts, returned to the states, both the resistance and the hesitation of the economic saboteurs gang who have enriched themselves at the expense of ordinary citizens.

Speaking with a source, it was found that the broom is facing strong resistance change with the plotters seeking payback for unorthodox and illegal means, like a novel that mimics a mafia movement. This, however, is not to stop the way to bring Angola back into the fold of economic and financial stability, so the plots planned to put boulders to distract the progress will not succeed as the details unfold like structure detailed to destabilize the country was mounted, details to be disclosed shortly.
