Pearls of investigative journalism: Isabel Dos Santos used Daddy´s connections
Real pearls of investigative journalism. Isabel Dos Santos convicted of kleptocracy,- the same journalists who praised her as the most successful self-made entrepreneur and businesswoman in Africa and as a role model for years using Relotius stories, are now presenting the opposite facts. Before the Western media created the following image. Firstly, a woman who easily makes the jump into the corporate top floor – as a contrast to the eternal complaints from feminists about the lack of women at the top of Dax 30 companies or at the World Economic Forum, then free enterprise in contrast to the one-state party and its leader and her daddy Eduardo Dos Santos that emerged from a former Marxist-Leninist guerrilla army. Now she is the princeling of her state president daddy and product of pure crony capitalism and symbol of state capitalism, corruption, nepotism and kleptocracy. Didn’t everybody know all that over the years that she was the daughter of the president, how the business relations were connected and did nobody wonder at that time where she got the money from? Nonsense, these media made look themselves stupid and suddenly pretend to be investigative. And nobody asks where these informations come from or if this sources and whistleblowers have not a self- interest in their own kleptocracy. Now that daddy gave up a year ago, other kleptocrats want to get the money. And the German KfW as chief criminal – financed a beer factory – worse excesses of imperialism are inconceivable. Nepotism and kleptocracy-unthinkable in the West or in the USA. It is interesting that no one continues to investigate Trump’s allegations against Biden and his son in Ukraine. Most of the time one crow does not chop out the eye of another crow, as long as there are no shifts in power, and this happened when the daddy resigned from the State president office in 2017, which will hardly bring about conditions in Angola or anywhere else that Transparency International would like.to see. Probably the background is more the geopolitical struggle for spheres of influence between the USA, China, Russia and the EU in Africa and Angola as Isabel was also for a time head of the Sonangol, the biggest Angolian oil company. And it’s more about oil in Angola than about German beer, even if self-critical Germans now see themselves as the worst imperialist and neocolonialist in Africa because of the financing of 1 beer factory.
Maybe BASF / Wintershall / DEA also had relationships with Sonangol. But the Sonangol is conspicuously left out in these investigative considerations. At the moment it is unclear who started this campaign and for what purpose. In any case, Isabele Dos Santos does not give up, goes on the offensive and even contemplates running as the presidential candidate in the next elections. Then she would inherit her daddy and become an African Queen.
