dc.description.abstract Undertakes a critical assessment of constitutional changes caused by and reflected in the political changes in Angola and Mozambique since independence. Concepts such as Marxism-Leninism, democracy and democratisation are examined in relation to Angola and Mozambique. Constitutional change during the period of Marxist-Lenisist dominance in Angola and Mozambique is discussed, as well as for the period from the start of democratisation until the end of 1994. Some comparative conclusions are drawn about the process of change reflected in the constitutions of these countries. It is found that political change in both countries was influenced by the civil wars that erupted shortly after independence. Angola and Mozambique were thus never really Marxist-Leninist; rather, the constitutions of both countries between 1975 and 1989 reflect countries that are socialistically orientated. West-bloc international involvement delayed democratic and free-market reforms in both Angola and Mozambique. The United Nations played a decisive role in the failure of the democratisation process in Angola by not supplying enough logistical support to ensure that demobilisation could be completed before the 1992 elections. In Mozambique however they did not make the same mistake, allowing for enough troop support and time to complete the process. en
