Isabel dos Santos: Africa's richest woman 'ripped off Angola
« on: January 19, 2020, 11:31:31 pm »
Leaked documents reveal how Africa's richest woman made her fortune through exploiting her own country, and corruption.
Isabel dos Santos got access to lucrative deals involving land, oil, diamonds and telecoms when her father was president of
Angola, a southern African country rich in natural resources.The documents show how she and her husband were allowed to buy
valuable state assets in a series of suspicious deals.Ms Dos Santos says the allegations against her are entirely false and

a presidential decree from her father Jose Eduardo dos Santos, who kept a tight grip on his country for the 38 years he was in
power.But when he retired as president in September 2017 her position was soon under threat, even though his hand-picked
successor came from the same party. Ms Dos Santos was sacked two months later.Many Angolans have been surprised at the way that
