Angola opposition says ruling party 'corrupt'

Ahead of election, some Angolans say nation's fast-growing wealth has eluded them, accusing MPLA of corruption.

    Angolan politicians are ending their campaigns ahead of an election that will see the people take to the polls for only the second time since a long and bloody civil war ended in 2002.

    The People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), the party of President Eduardo dos Santos, is expected to handily carry the polls on Friday.

    However, some Angolans say the nation's fast-growing wealth has passed then by and accuse the MPLA, which has been in power for 33 years, of corruption.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
