Angola President, José Eduardo dos Santos, has returned home after 17 days in Spain, where he traveled to for medical treatment.
The 74-year-old President arrived in Luanda, the country’s capital late Wednesday and was accompanied by his wife, Ana Paula dos Santos.
They were received at the military air base by the Vice-President, Manuel Domingos Vicente and other top government officials.
The veteran leader has reportedly visited the European state several times since 2013.
“President dos Santos normally seeks medical treatment in Spain and this is normal for him to be there,” he said.
“It is all right but you know it happens with everyone. Sometimes you don’t feel fine but he is fine,” Georges Chikoti, foreign affairs minister told journalists in Luanda.
Dos Santos left the country on July 3 for Barcelona. His office alluded in a statement that the visit was private, without divulging details.
He spent 28 days in Spain in May without an official explanation, prompting claims of his death on both the social and traditional media.
