Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Angola, Arts & Culture, Elections, Music

Edmundo Galiza Matos [1] [pt] comments on the Angola President José Eduardo dos Santos’ 66th birthday party this Sunday 31th, which according to the blogger is just an election stunt. “Two names of Angolan music, acting and living outside their country for alleged spiritual and political “sufferings” have rushed back to Luanda, where, with their concerts, they already show support for former party enemy's election campaign, and as if it wasn't enough, urging voters to vote with confidence for their arch-enemies.”
