Veteran Angolan leader warned of Burkina-style revolt

A photo taken on August 29, 2012 shows Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos Angolan delivering a speech during his final election campaign rally in Kilamba Kaixi, on the outskirts of LuandaAngola’s long-ruling president should learn from the ousting of his counterpart in Burkina Faso and make plans to step down rather than be forced out, the country’s most prominent activist has told AFP. Jose Eduardo dos Santos is the continent’s second longest serving president — after Equatorial Guinea’s Teodoro Obiang Nguema — having led the oil-rich country for the past 35 years. “I think the plan of President Dos Santos is to stay in power until God calls him and then if possible for his son to take over,” author, rights and anti-graft activist Rafael Marques de Morais told AFP during a visit to South Africa. News that Burkina Faso’s long-serving leader Blaise Compaore had been booted out amid mass protests last week after 27 years in power, has reverberated across Africa.
