Jose Filomeno dos Santos the son of former Angola President has been jailed for five years after he was found guilty of fraud.
The 42-year-old who was the head of Sovereign Wealth Fund for a period of five years between the year of 2013 and 2018 is accused of stealing up to $1.5 billion.
According to court records, the son of the former President is accused of transferring the said amount to a bank in Switzerland.
The sentencing Dos Santos shows the commitment of the country to fight corruption especially those holding higher positions.
His father José Eduardo dos Santos ruled for 38 years and allegations of corruptions have been flying in all directions afterwards.
Before the sentencing the former President’s son had already served a seven month sentence that ended back in March.
Also in the list is his sister Isabel Dos Santos who is ranked Africa’s richest women whose wealth is under investigation.
