Angolan trophy city a 'ghost town'
The Nova Cidade de Kilamba (New City of Kilamba) is far too expensive and has not been designed to address the population's needs.
Built at a reported cost of $3.5-billion, it was supposed to solve ­Angola's chronic post-war housing shortage and go some way to fulfil a 2008 election promise to provide ­one million homes in four years.

But the Nova Cidade de Kilamba (New City of Kilamba), designed for several hundred thousand people, is home to barely a tenth of that number, earning it the moniker of "ghost town"
