Isabel Dos Santos: Daughter of Former Angola’s President Sacked As Oil Chief

Angolan President Joao Lourenco on Wednesday fired his predecessor’s daughter, Isabel dos Santos, from her influential post as head of the Sonangol state oil company, the presidency said in a statement.

Her appointment to the oil giant last year was widely criticised as a symbol of the nepotism and corruption that flourished under Dos Santos.
