In Angola's case, they seem to be installing Portuguese-style signs too, so maybe they are using one type for one type of road and another for others.
It looks like the new ones are Portuguese, although I am guessing that it might have a bit to do with the contractor that built the road

For what I can see, Angolan road quality is one of the best in Africa, even for such a sparsely populated country... I've heard something about chinese companies building many new roads in exchange for exploing their resources...
Also road signage appears to be excelent, they even have signs like the diamond-shaped white and orange priority sign which I haven't almost seen here in Spain, although it exists in our traffic codes.

I wouldn't say so. Surely they've done much construction in the past ten years, but I'd say Kenya & Ethiopia, for example, have better quality roads in comparison.
