What Happens to Angola First Family's Wealth When Dad Steps Down?

As Angola's president prepares to step down after nearly four decades in power, all eyes in this Southern African nation are not only looking at Jose Eduardo dos Santos - but at his billionaire daughter. She has been accused of trying to further her family's wealth at the expense of Angolans under her father's presidency. Now that Angola picks its first new leader in 38 years, could this be a turning point - and what does this mean for Isabel dos Santos and her family?
