Luanda Angola History
Since independence in 1975, Angola has been one of the world's wealthiest countries with a population of more than 1.5 million. Economic growth and development throughout the region have reached record highs in that time, and Angola is a magnet for private investment. South Africa is known for being the least diversified economy in South Africa and the second poorest country in Africa. It wants to be known for its people, who are the poorest on the continent. Unlike most of Portuguese Angola, the cosmopolitan 19-city city city of Luanda was not affected by the Portuguese colonial war of 1961-1974. The fertile land was destroyed, littered with landmines and drove millions out of the city.
The defeat of Kwanyamo marked Portugal's total domination of Angola, and at that point the colony reached the limits set by the European colonial powers at the Berlin Conference of 1884-1885. After independence, however, the former colony faced serious problems: a civil war developed between Angola and Mozambique, and by 1890 the British Empire had halted all plans to expand Angola eastwards. There is now a debate about whether the national imperialism of the MPLA is really what makes it Angola or Angola.
Portuguese conquerors, who denied and suppressed the right of the indigenous people to self-determination, freedom of speech and the right to life, are represented in the history of Angola and its people.
It is a colonial history that persists in the perspectives, conceptualizations and classifications of people. Finally, it is argued that new power constellations have been produced and reproduced in Angola's history and in other parts of the world. The new Portuguese migration to Angola has been interpreted as evoking a repetition of this colonial past, but in a renewed form, and sometimes mentioned in interviews. This interpretation of "Portuguese migration in Angola," which is echoed by many who have imitated it, is an example of how the historical memory of post-colonial Angola of the present is being negotiated.
More specifically, this article examines the role of new Portuguese migration in the history of post-colonial Angola and its implications for the future of Angolan history.
Between 1900 and 1940, only 35,000 Portuguese emigrants settled in Angola, and most worked in the cities to facilitate trade with Portugal. More and more Portuguese settlers came to Angola at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, mainly from Portugal, but also from other parts of the world. In 1960, some 160,000 Europeans lived in the country, most of them from Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Italy.
Portugal annexed the territories of the region, which had been ruled as a colony since 1655, and Angola was incorporated as an overseas province of Portugal in 1951. With the emergence of a new state that extended beyond the colony, Angola became a province within the Portuguese ultramarine province. Brazil's independence after the end of World War II and the establishment of an independent state of Angola led the Portuguese to intensify their control over other territories, including Angola. Angola is now the most centralized state in Africa, with officials in Luanda .
The different peoples that now inhabit Angola are diverse and interconnected, and the different ethnic groups, such as the Bantu, Angolan, Tutsi, Malawian, Portuguese, Indian, African and others, have their own languages and cultures. Portuguese, spoken in Angola during colonial times, is still peppered with "black" and "African" expressions that are part of the "BantU" experience and exist only in the Angolan national language. Portuguese dictionaries contain several words that reflect this, but they are limited to "moderate" for Bantsu .
Thus, in the early 20th century, the Kwanyamo people split off from the Tutsi people as a result of the war between the Portuguese and the Bantu. During the new state (Estado Novo) that expanded the colony, Angola became part of what was called the province of the Portuguese Ultramarine Province . In 1975, this area became the capital of Angola with a population of about 1.5 million people .
In 1975 Angola became independent of Portugal and the MPLA took control of the government in Luanda, and Agostinho Neto became president. He was Ambassador of Angola to Portugal from 1978 to 1982 and Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) from 1982 to 1983.
He joined the National Front for the Liberation of Angola, which was founded with the help of the US State Department and the United Nations. In 1956 he was a member of President Jose Eduardo Dos Santos' National Liberation Army (MPLA) and In 1966 he founded his own political party, the Luanda People's Liberation Movement. He was the first president of his country's National Liberation Front in 1956 and one of its leaders.
