Several of late Angolan president Jose Eduardo dos Santos’s children have agreed to hold a state funeral for their father in Angola but only after the August 24 elections to avoid an “unacceptable political use” of the event. They also said “consolidating the political heritage” of the former president should involve adopting an “amnesty law” and “ending legal proceedings” against “numerous Angolans”. Dos Santos’s eldest daughter Isabel, who signed the letter seen by the AFP news agency, faces a slew of investigations into her multinational business dealings, while dos Santos’s son Jose Filomeno, who also signed it, has been in prison since 2019 on corruption charges.
