Terrible, how can people buy a fancy luxury apartment by knowing that people below dwell in such horrible conditions like in the Middle Ages, they are constantly reminded when they gaze around

The biggest problem is the insecurity because of the level of criminality in Luanda, all of these slums are shelters for the criminals and these modern houses around are a target for them.

Yes, unfortunately, that´s a big problem, I know.

But I don´t know how many people from abroad flock to Angola and engage in such practices. The country´s borders are virtually not controlled and people are allowed to move across borders like cattle...officers at the checkpoints of borders (who are most likely ill-paid at best are easily receptive to engage in corrupt practices...I know how Nigeria works, I strongly doubt that Angola is any different in this regard). These facts combined with an almost utter neglect of the vast parts of the country (a direct result of the war & collapse of the country´s once thriving agriculture) will only contribute to the excessive growth of its urban slums not just in Luanda but in other urban areas of the vast country as well.

Your country needs to seek adequate measures to stop the massive flight of people from the countryside by fostering agricultural development in order to give people in the rural communities a good standard of living as well.
It needs to secure its borders more properly. (this does NOT mean buildings walls, btw). There are more effective ways to handle this growing problem.

However, the fact that the current former "socialist" party has utterly failed to do so for the past 40 years, gives me little hope that they will be able to turn around the wheel miraculously.

But as I said, I am always happy to be convinced of the opposite.

Attention: what I have said does not mean that slum-dwellers are criminals. There are numerous people there that are hard-working and intelligent but who do not have the possibility to escape their economically deprived lives due to a variety of reasons that I don´t wish to enlarge upon in the context of this sub-forum.

Yes Matt, i got your message and i am happy you also understood my point, because i did not want either to make the impression that the slum dwellers are criminals, on the contrary, lot of them are hard workers and honest people.

Matt are you really sure of what you're talking about though ? Angola is one of the hardest african countries to get in specially for other africans, and we deport thousands every single month, just see bluesun posts..

well, mattt is not totally wrong. the immigration policy is tough and very hard to get a visa, but it's pretty easy for anyone to just walk in.

now the question is, how do you control such a large border without building walks around it?

Actually your all sort of right. Angola has had a lot of people walking in, but the government has spent a lot on border control with light aircraft, border vehicles, manpower patrols and by some accounts drones. the biggest problem in Angola though, for illegal immigrants, is working and living undetected. the rate of expulsion is high and there are regular large sweeps for documentations. By African standards it's not an easy place to hide and work under the radar.

Yes exactly, if one travels across our country (doing that since was a kid) its not hard to realize that! Especially if you go to the provinces that border other countries.
Our boarder control doesn't seem that "bad" or "underfunded"!

I couldn´t agree more.

And there are the other salient problems that need to be tackled: organized crime(e.g. recklessly profit-seeking human traffickers), an ingrained culture of corruption that permeates every fibre of society, lack of qualified (border) police...you name it.

That's ok, maybe one day you go to angola and visit the provinces that border congo and then you'll see for yourself.

But anyways, peace.
