History of Conflict and its Impact on Angolan Development
Post-independence Angola was challenged with conflict and political instability mainly from two liberation organisations; People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) and the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA). The protracted war spanned from 1975 to 2002 and unlike Rwanda the civil war was not based mainly on ethic differences but a power struggle for accessing resources.
