Angola: The voting weapon

Cazimar [pt] echoes the news that the Chinese An Yue Jiang ship was allowed to dock in Luanda only to unload merchandise destined for Angola. The blogger asks Angolan president José Eduardo dos Santos why he wants weaponry and call people to react: “Be careful with this delivery of weapons. You may be backfired. The weapons are your only guarantee of your independence (for which you fought), against this gang of dictators and corrupt negotiators. They'll try to disarm you, so that they can massacre you. The voting weapon will be a farce. A circus made in China, similar to Zimbabwe and Kenya.”
