Was the factional civil war that broke out in Angola after its independence from Portugal in 1975 primarily based on tribal rivalries. (with an ideological cover)?
- The MPLA's main support was among the Ambundu people.
- UNITA's main support came from the Ovimbundu tribe of central Angola.
- The FNLA's main support came from the Bakongo people in the North.
But it quickly became a proxy conflict within the wider Cold War though.
