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.

Angola and Namibia agree construction of three bridges on the river Cubango


Angola and Namibia will build three new international bridges connecting the border regions of Cuando Cubango and Okavango, to strengthen economic relations between the two countries.

However, another bridge over the river Cubango (or Okavango), connecting between Be silent (Angola) and Rundu (Namibia), is already in operation with a total length of 250 meters.


Fully financed by the Angolan government, this work came to be suspended for four months due to the defense of the Namibian population, claiming problems arising from its low height, which would hinder the passage of hippos or larger boats.


The two governments have taken in order to strengthen trade and economic relations between these border regions, also facilitating the mobility of people.
In this sense, the central banks of two countries signed on September 22 an agreement providing that the Angolan kwanza and the Namibian dollar start to be accepted in trade in border towns.


Both countries share a border of over 1,300 kilometers and this understanding also stipulates the traffic rules and acceptance of money issued by each of the central banks, the adoption of the reference exchange rates, the terms of the country's counterpart currency repatriation and the modality of net compensation between currencies.
