Angola's First New Leader In 38 Years To Be Sworn In
Joao Lourenco is due to be sworn in as president of Angola on Tuesday, becoming the first new leader in the oil-rich southern African nation in almost four decades.
Lourenco is taking over from Jose Eduardo dos Santos, who ruled the former Portuguese colony for almost 38 years.
Lourenco, 63, won August elections on an anti-corruption platform. He will be Angola's first head of state to be constitutionally limited to serving two five-year terms.
