Angola is a country in southwestern Africa bordering Namibia,
Congo-Kinshasa, Congo-Brazzaville and Zambia. The capital city is Luanda. A
former Portuguese colony, it has considerable natural resources, among which
oil and diamonds are the most relevant. After a long war with Portuguese
colonial forces, Angola became independent in 1975. Shortly after, a civil
war broke out between MPLA, UNITA and FNLA. The later would retire from the
conflict, leaving the marxist MPLA and the western backed UNITA to fight for
power. In 1991, both factions agreed to turn Angola into a multiparty state
but after the current president Jos Eduardo dos Santos of MPLA won UN
supervised elections, UNITA claimed there was a fraud and fighting broke out
again. A 1994 peace accord (Lusaka protocol) between the government and
UNITA provided for the integration of former UNITA insurgents into the
government. A national unity government was installed in 1997, but serious
fighting resumed in late 1998, rendering hundreds of thousands of people
homeless. President Jos Eduardo dos Santos suspended the regular
functioning of democratic instances due to the conflict. On February 22nd
2002, Jonas Savimbi, the leader of UNITA was shot dead and a cease-fire was
reached by the two factions. UNITA gave up its armed wing and assumed the
role of major opposition party. Although the political situation of the
country seems to be normalizing, president dos Santos still hasn't allowed
regular democratic processes to occur. Among Angola's major problems are a
serious humanitarian crisis (a result of the prolonged war), the abundance
of mine fields, and the actions of guerrilla movements fighting for the
independence of the northern enclave of Cabinda.
