Angola: “Let's get to be citizens”

“We can't carry on saying tirelessly that our country is rich. We can't continue lauding ourselves as the major oil producer in Africa. This was in times when we were children, we felt as children and reasoned as children. Now we need to think as citiznes and quenstion if our life conditions are levelled with our vast resources.” José Maria Huambo writes a piece called “Let's stop being people, let's get to be citizens” for Interrogações Sobre Angola [pt] blog.
