The politician and former president of Angola was admitted to a clinic in Barcelona, Spain, where he was being treated for a long-standing illness.


Barcelona, Spain (SN) | Former Angolan president José Eduardo dos Santos, who ruled Africa’s second largest oil producer for nearly four decades, died at the age of 79 this Friday (8), the country’s presidential office said.

Dos Santos died at a clinic in Barcelona, Spain, where he was being treated for a long-standing illness, according to the statement.


One of Africa’s longest-serving leaders, Dos Santos resigned five years ago. His rule was marked by a nearly three-decade civil war against the US-backed Unita rebels, which he eventually won in 2002, and an oil-fueled boom that followed.
