Sindika Dokolo, Africa’s richest woman’s husband, Isabel Dos Santos, died in Dubai at the age of 48. Art collector, originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo, died while diving.

The news of the death was advanced by Africa Insight. According to the same source, Dokolo was diving when he drowned. This is the press version of the Democratic Republic of Congo, however, Angolan sources indicated that the cause of death was an embolism.

Dokolo’s death was officially confirmed by Michée Mulumba of the Congolese president’s office, Felix Tshisekedi.

The son of the first black man who set up a bank, Augustin Dokolo, Sindika was born in the former Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of Congo, having spent most of his childhood in Europe.

In 2002, he married Isabel dos Santos, daughter of former Angolan President José Eduardo dos Santos, in Luanda.

The couple moved to Dubai in early 2020, following the opening of several investigations into Dokolo, along with his wife, for allegedly diverting properties from the Angolan government, which determined the preventive seizure of shares of Isabel dos Santos and Sindika Dokolo, in companies such as Unitel, BFA, Bic Angola and ZAP.

Isabel dos Santos posted a photo with Dokolo and her youngest son on Twitter, but without any caption. There are comments of grief in response to the tweet.

Dokolo owned one of africa’s most contemporary art collections, which included more than 3,000 pieces of art.
