    Titled “Revenge of settler,” the editorial states that “after the failed devices of military destabilization and war” and that “after losing in the field of elections” and “fail in the banking and economic field”, the “leaders of former colonial power now manipulate the corridors of Justice to try to get his agenda of neo-colonization “.

    The vice president of Angola, Manuel Vicente, said on Wednesday in a statement to be “completely oblivious to hiring” the attorney Orlando Figueira, the private sector, as well as “any payments” allegedly that magistrate benefited.

    “I am completely oblivious in particular the hiring of a prosecutor Portuguese for functions in the private sector, as well as any payment that is said to have benefited, as media reports, allegedly by a company with which I had not any kind of relationship, and it was not and never was a subsidiary of Sonangol, “he said.

    The current vice-president of Angola reacted to the news about his alleged involvement in the facts related to the investigation of “Fizz operation” conducted by Portuguese judicial authorities, which led to the arrest and remand of Orlando Figueira, former prosecutor of the Central Department Investigation and Penal Action (DCIAP).

    Manuel Vicente added that the reports in the media about his alleged involvement in the “Fizz operation” are not true and “seriously undermine” against his good name, honor, image and reputation.

    “The reaction of great dignity Manuel Vicente due to the new campaign against him was thrown by the Portuguese media, responding effectively to allegations of ‘Operation Fizz’ circulated by the Attorney General of the Republic of Portugal and expressing its willingness to clarify facts attributed to him is enough to understand this new episode as another example, both the lack of modesty, as the Portuguese revanchism, “reads the editorial in the Jornal de Angola.

    The text also claims “uncured repressions and need urgent psychoanalytic treatment” to conclude that the “reasons why the Portuguese judiciary to let corrupt by half a dozen pennies are to be found in the generalized system of clientelism and the type of moral relations and cultural historically deployed in Portuguese life. “

    Study French researchers proved that this African region is inhabited since prehistoric times. But it was in the fifteenth century that began to write in more detail the lines of development of this country.

    The Portuguese Diogo Cao sailed to the territory that is now Angola. The date of arrival is not consensual: there are historians who claim that have been in 1482 and others who claim it was in 1484.

    The first measure of the Portuguese was to establish an alliance with the Kingdom of Congo, which dominated the entire region. The South of this kingdom also existed the Kingdom of Ndongo and the Kingdom of Matamba, which then were to merge, to give the Kingdom of Angola, in 1559.

    Paulo Dias de Novais was the first Governor of Angola. Novais sought to define this vast territory and exploit their natural resources. In 1576, São Paulo da Assunção de Luanda, the current city of Luanda, was founded.

    The war that seemed to have no end

    In the twentieth century, in the early 1960s, three liberation movements (UPA / FNLA, MPLA and UNITA) started an armed struggle against the Portuguese colonialism.

    The Government of Portugal, led by Salazar refused to dialogue with the leaders of these organizations and continued to defend the colony to the limit. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers were mobilized for combat.

    This fight lasted until the 25th of April 1974 when the Portuguese dictatorship was overthrown by the “Carnation Revolution”. The independence of Angola in 1975 did not end the war, which won international boundaries, since the three movements were supported by foreign powers, such as Russia, Cuba, South Africa, Zaire, China, USA and England.

    Despite the declaration of independence, the internal conflict lasted until the early 1990s the end of April this year, the Angolan government announced that it would resume direct contacts with UNITA opposition party MPLA. The following month, UNITA officially recognized José Eduardo dos Santos as head of State. The fall of the Soviet Union, which supported the MPLA, accelerated the process of democratization in Angola and in May 1991 the government published a law authorizing the creation of new parties, putting an end to single party.

    Since it began the pacification of Angola that the development indices of this country have been increasing. Peace brought to Angola the conditions that allow you currently have regional power status in Southern Africa.

Fairs will want to take pictures and recall the oil and sand paintings. In Luanda to lose by one of the art galleries will fix the eye in photographs of Paulino Damião or in parts of the artist Lino Damião.

    Dance is certain presence in the streets of Angola. It is more than cultural. It’s in the blood. It’s in the blood the parties late and the good disposition. It is early on that the Angolans ‘pack’ the sounds of the earth. In Carvanal, the party invades the Avenue in Luanda or Benguela and all provinces there is a wave of color in the form of floats.

After a year in Cairo, Jonas Savimbi back to angola smuggled through the Zambia, insuflando new life and actions of guerrilla warfare of unita in the east of the territory of Angola and cooperated with the services of military security Portuguese. Unita regularly attacked the bases of the mpla in the east of Angola. Unita has served as a strong arm of the Portuguese troops in the rear, with special mission of molesting the people who followed and supported the mpla, in the land of the east and the centre of the country until 1974.
