Saturday morning return from Luanda to PA. First some shopping at KERO, a big hypermarche, really a pity there is only limited choice of products and some good stuff what was available in the past not in on the shelfs anymore.
João Lourenço former general, the 63-year-old is part of the president’s inner circle and is currently the MPLA’s deputy leader.
As a young man he fought against Portuguese colonial rule, and in the civil war that followed independence in 1975. Like Mr Dos Santos, he was a student in the former Soviet Union before going into politics. According to his biography posted on the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries (CPLP), he used to play football and do Shotokan karate and also enjoys chess and horse-riding.
