Living in Angola
The seventh largest country in Africa, Angola is situated on the west coast, to the south of central Africa. It is bordered only by Namibia and Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Angola’s territory surrounds the exclave of Cabinda, in the north of the country which has long been a disputed territory. The topography of the country is varied, featuring beaches, rivers and rocky mountainous terrain. The capital city of Luanda is an important industrial, cultural and urban centre, and strategically significant as Angola’s primary port is situated there. This arguably was moulded by the Portuguese colonisation of Angola in the 1500s, where its coastal situation established it as an important trading post. Angola achieved independence in 1975, but its political situation made it a one-party state, with insurgents causing instability up to the year 2002. Whilst presently stable, it remains a unitary presidential republic. The population exceeding 25 million is highly diverse, with clear Portuguese influence embedded in the predominance of the language and the fact that the main religion is Catholicism. Despite this, there is a large multiethnicity with Ovimbundu, Ambundo and Bakongo being the largest ethnic groups. The country has been elected twice as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, having made significant progress in both politically and economically since the end of the civil war for independence. Its economic progress of 20% GDP growth between 2005 and 2007 is largely due to its natural abundance in resources such as diamonds, oil, copper and gold. Yet the country is one of two halves, with social inequality rife and the wealth being disproportionate across the population.
