Angola has frozen assets belonging to Isabel dos Santos known as Africa’s richest woman, after accusing her and two others of causing the state losses of more than $1 billion.

Isabel dos Santos is the billionaire daughter of the country’s previous leader, José Eduardo dos Santos who was in power for almost 40 years until 2017.

President João Lourenço who replaced dos Santos is said to be taking a tougher line against the former first family.
