Luísa Diogo

Mozambican politician

Luisa Diogo was born in 1958 in western Mozambique. She was 17 and in high school when civil war broke out. She studied economics at university and began working in the finance ministry. She quickly worked her way up to be her nation’s first ever female leader. She has brought about considerable change in her once war-torn country.

When Diogo joined the government in 1980, Mozambique was in its fifth year of civil war and the economy was in ruins. Diogo’s skill in financial affairs and willingness to take risks saw her become department head in 1986 and national budget director three years later. In 1994 she won another promotion to deputy finance minister.


April 11, 1958
Luísa Diogo was born in Tete.
