For a laugh, I read the BBC article but substituted the name Clinton in for dos Santos, just to see if it sounded at all like 'reality.' It was at least mildly amusing...

Seems exploiting ones country is the standard for leadership in Africa. Most countries around the world too if we are honest, the western ones just seem to be able to bleed the golden goose without killing it.

Good on Dos Santos' chosen successor for flipping the script and going after her stolen wealth. That family ripped the country off to high hell, time to get it back. Although I don't have much faith that even if it's all recovered it'll go where it can do good.

Also speaks to Pete Buttigieg, he worked for McKinsey for sometime and this is their bread and butter. Is this the type of candidate people want for their President?

What a strong black woman! She is just doing what white people have been accused of doing since forever.... oh wait that's right, every race has shit bags and blaming white people for everything is in itself racist. If anything, white people showing remorse makes them better than other races that still don't own up to their own shit.

fuckin white people exploiting Africans... oh wait.

The truth is Africa sets itself up to be exploited and it would be foolish to let the advantage go to others (like China)
