Ana Paula dos Santos Career
A diplomat described the President and First Lady as: “a handsome couple, elegantly and expensively dressed, looking for all the world as though they’re living in southern California. In 1997 Ana Paula undiplomatically announced that her five-year-old son would enroll at the Portuguese school in Luanda because of the “bad quality” of state education (for which many hold her husband responsible). She has also tried to make her presence felt in administrative matters; a move which has irritated the political mainstream. Also under fire are her business interests, particularly diamonds.
She is a patron of the Committee to support rural women (COMUR), supporting with micro-credit funds. She represented her country at the Micro-credit Summit for Heads of States and Governments in Washington D.C., in 1997.
She is also very active in her support of landmine victims. Therefore she founded the Lwini Fund for social solidarity which is dedicated to the support of civilians, particularly women and children.

The first lady: A former fashion model, Ana Paula Santos knew her husband from her time as a flight attendant on the Angolan version of Air Force One. She now has a degree in teaching and law, and is a member of the International Steering Committee.
A diplomat once described the president and first lady as “a handsome couple, elegantly and expensively dressed, looking for all the world as though they’re living in southern California.” The first lady received a lot of flack from the public when she announced that her son would be attending the Portuguese school in Luanda because of the “bad quality” of state education — something for which many people hold her husband responsible.
Her husband: During President dos Santos’ 36 years in office, he has consolidated all political power under his control. Countless atrocities, including torture and mass murders, occurred under his watch during a 27-year-long civil war. There are still reports of torture and repression of ethnic minorities going on in Angola today.
