Corruption, according to reports, is a canker worm which has eaten deep into the economy of Angola, thereby leading to an on-going death challenge which has become viral .
In a determined bid to protest a range of issues from bad roads, poor hospital conditions, the high cost of living, pollution, and unemployment, some youths in Angola have reportedly kicked off the bizarre trend on social media.
A hashtag #acabademematar, which translates roughly as “kill me already” is currently trending on social media as young Angolans pose for pictures where they are seen playing dead.
According to the country’s popular blogger, Lunga Izata, who spoke on the reason behind the new trend, said the photos are in protest to a range of issues from bad roads, poor hospital conditions, the high cost of living, pollution, and unemployment to the lack of schools.
“Yesterday, while longing for news that there may be a possibility of easing the country’s economic crisis, I was saddened to hear that children have not been to school for five years.”
