Former Angolan minister Manuel Rabelais was sentenced Monday to 14 years in prison on corruption charges, becoming the second ex-minister put behind bars since Joao Lourenço took power in 2017. Africa News reports that Rabelais, a former communications minister under the previous regime, was arrested in October 2020 and convicted by the Luanda Supreme Court of money laundering and misappropriation of public funds. Via a marketing company he ran, he was found guilty of embezzling 98 million euros between 2016 and 2017. In August, José Filomeno dos Santos, the former president’s son, was also sentenced to five years in prison for embezzling money from Angola’s sovereign wealth fund, which he oversaw from 2013 to 2018.
