  1. O dólar em Angola nunca chegou, os dólares ja tem nomes e apelhidos quando chegar aquí.. A corrupçao e o crime neste país nunca vao acabar, es mesmo pior que a malaria e o fome que cada día máis acelera e lacera a vida do povo angolano. Es meu ponto de visao.

  2. Such a huge amount in travel assistance that when you go to the bank no cash available is available for travellers. The amount required for travellers and family assistance must be increased to met the demand.
