Angola’s goes to poll today.

Angola’s election today is expected to be the most closely fought since independence in nineteen seventy-five.
With the MPLA in charge for more than four decades, it might be hard to imagine that it could lose its place at the pinnacle of power.
But it is facing a growing wave of discontent fuelled by high levels of poverty and unemployment.
Despite Angola being rich in oil and minerals, many have not benefitted from that wealth.
There are eight parties taking part, but the MPLA’s main opponent is Unita – a one-time rebel movement.
