The Bishop of Angola, Andre Soares, has warned that his country’s economy has taken a huge hit because of the collapse in the price of oil. He says basic essentials are no longer available. Speaking at Chatham House – the renowned international affairs think tank – during a visit to the UK, he gave an example of going to hospital and finding there were no syringes available for a malaria test. He said this was exceptionally serious because of the rise in deaths from malaria and yellow fever.
