Angolan president to be sworn in for second term

Angolan President João Lourenço will be sworn in for a second term on Thursday after narrowly winning the country’s tightest elections.

His MPLA party has ruled the country since independence from Portugal in 1975.

Mr Lourenço described the result as a “vote of confidence”.

But he will have to deal with a generation of young people demanding changes that have an impact their quality of life.

The 68-year-old president campaigned on a strong anti-corruption stance.
