The body of former Angolan president Jose Eduardo dos Santos arrived in the Angolan capital Luanda on Saturday evening, six weeks after his demise in Spain.
Tens of people gathered at Luanda’s airport in solidarity with dos Santos’ family to welcome the coffin carrying his remains.
The arrival of the body follows weeks of uncertainty over the former president’s final resting place.
Dos Santos, who ruled Angola from 1979 to 2017, died on July 8 at the age of 79 at a clinic in Barcelona, where he was being treated following a long illness.
Dos Santos’s daughter, Tchize, through her lawyers, requested a full autopsy on suspicions of foul play in the death.
Tchize also asked for him to be buried in the Spanish city of Barcelona.
On Wednesday, a Spanish judge ruled that the death was from natural causes, and allowed the repatriation of dos Santos’s body back to his home country.
A spokesperson for the ruling MPLA party, is reported to have said the funeral is likely to take place on August 28, Dos Santos’ birthday.
