ANGOLAN  LAW  FIRM  TO ESTABLISH LATE PRESIDENT’S BURIAL  GROUNDS

The government of Angola has hired a law firm to represent its interests and those of the widow of the former President José Eduardo dos Santos, Ana Paula dos Santos, amid a row within the family on the late leader’s burial.

The older children of the former president want to have custody of the body and hold a burial in Spain, while the widow and younger children want his body returned to Angola.

Jose dos Santos died on 8 July at a hospital in Barcelona, Spain, after running Angola for 38 years until his retirement in 2017.

Local media said efforts by the government and the family of the late leader to reach an agreement on funeral arrangements have failed.
