Angola is a large and resource-rich country located in Southern Africa, bordered by Namibia to the south, Zambia to the east, the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The capital and largest city is Luanda. Angola gained independence from Portuguese colonial rule in 1975, leading to a long-lasting civil war that persisted until 2002. The People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), which fought for independence, emerged as the dominant political force and has been the ruling party since independence. The political system is characterized by a strong presidency, and as of my last update, João Lourenço was serving as the President of Angola, succeeding José Eduardo dos Santos in 2017. Other significant political parties include the National Front for the Liberation of Angola (FNLA) and the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA). Angola has vast natural resources, particularly oil and diamonds, which contribute significantly to its economy. Despite its resource wealth, the country faces economic challenges, including high levels of poverty, corruption, and the need for economic diversification. Efforts have been made to attract foreign investment and promote economic reforms. Angola’s political and economic landscape may have evolved, and it is advisable to consult more recent sources for the latest information on the country’s overview and political dynamics beyond January 2022.
