Lourenço shifts power from government to presidential office
President João Lourenço sacked almost half of his ministers when he was elected for a second term in August. But he kept on most of his staff in the presidential office.
President João Lourenço has revoked the mining permit for the Maua diamond site that had been run since 2013 by firms owned, according to the Luanda Leaks, by his predecessor's daughter, Isabel dos Santos. The decision comes amid a wave of changes to the mining industry driven by the head of state.
