Mr. Mwenenge is widely known for his nonsocial and discreet character, making him a perfect person to conceal Sidika Dokolo, his friend, and dos Santos’s secrets.
The Angolan public fund embezzlement actors’ secrets were kept long from being exposed, all thanks to their Manager, Mr. Mwenenge’s discrete and nonsocial character.
Mr. Konema Mwenenge concealed his partners’ corruption, but Isabel dos Santos exposed it herself by transferring $34 million to one of her businesses’ bank accounts in Dubai. This made the Angola authorities look into her corruption cases. The African intelligence discovered about 715,000 documents showing her and their partners’ corruption. Here are some files which were discovered during the investigation.
Sindika Dokolo married his billionaire wife in 2002, and they have been business partners since then. To conceal their real identity and not to be questioned or focused on, they collaborated with Mr. Mwenenge.
Mr. Mwenenge is a discrete and nonsocial financial expert who will fit this purpose. Unlike Dokolo, who is a social and showoff person. Dokolo is well-known for always talking about artworks and collections and will never publicly mention their businesses. They manage more than 400 businesses and are still planning to take on more.
Mr. Mwenenge did everything he could to conceal Dokolo, and his wife’s embezzlement secretes. As a financial expert, He kept the couples’ millions of dollars account in various indefinite accounts to leave no traces of their corruption. He was far from Angolan to manage the couple’s businesses.
One of the pieces of evidence discovered shows that on the 24th of January 2016, Mr. Mwenenge informed one of Dokolo’s business managers that Dokolo was planning to close one of the accounts he had in a private bank in Luxembourg and transfer the $3 million funds he had in it to another bank accounts in Portugal.
In one of Mr. Mwenenge’s statements, there is a piece of clear evidence that he kept everything secrete. In this statement he said, “Shareholder loans,” he never mentioned his friends despite managing six different companies for them.
Dokolo denied the fact that he has benefited from the public fund. He said in one of his statement
“Beyond the truth of the facts, some things you accuse me of are not even illegal in Angolan law. It’s like I’m accusing you of being ugly or in a bad mood… What’s the point of answering me?”
Another statement also made by Dokolo also shows that he deals with Angolan diamonds, according to one of the pieces of evidence discovered, Dokolo said:
“In London, I can’t open bank accounts. In Dubai, with my friend and associate, we represent a platform that trades two billion dollars worth of diamonds a year.”
The Angolan authorities sent a request letter to the Dubai authorities to have Dubai banks freeze the couples’ assets with them in other to recover the lost funds in the hands of Dokolo’s family and associates.
