BRICE LACCRUCHE-ALIHANGA’S GOVERNMENT RESCHUFFLING. LE REMANIEMENT MINISTÉRIEL DE BRICE LACCRUCHE-ALIHANGA

Image
English version
The recent reshuffle of Ali Bongo's government was allegedly the work of Brice Laccruche-Alihanga, his Chief of Staff.
Supported by Sylvia Bongo, Brice Laccruche-Alihanga wanted to get rid of Guy Rossatanga-Rignault by sending him away from the presidential palace.
Brice Laccruche-Alihanga would have judged, according to La Lettre du Continent, that Yves-Fernand Manfoumbi had become too caricatural to continue to sit in government.

SENEGAL IS A RECOGNIZED DEMOCRACY, AND GABON, A CONFIRMED DICTATORSHIP. LE SÉNÉGAL EST UNE DÉMOCRATIE RECONNUE, ET LE GABON, UNE DICTATURE CONFIRMÉE

Image
English version
Dear readers, a compatriot certainly wanting to prove to us that to go to the elections in a dictatorship could bear fruits, made the remark below to us (the first one), which generated an answer from us, then a retort by the compatriot and finally we decided to bring this debate to the general public because it was of broad interest. We offer our exchange below.

The compatriot: Diouf and Wade were defeated by the ballot box
This blog: Senegal is a true democracy that since Senghor, organizes free and credible elections. Can you make the same argument for Gabon? Wade and Diouf came and went by the polls. They never fired on the people to stay in power. The comparison seems inappropriate.
The compatriot: Are you kidding or what? Senghor transferred power to Diouf through institutional arrangements. How could an appointed Prime Minister finish the mandate of a president elected by universal suffrage? Diouf came to power under a rogue law that inspired Houphouet-Boigny to all…

ARM WRESTLING BETWEEN BRICE LACCRUCHE-ALIHANGA AND FREDERIC BONGO. BRAS DE FER ENTRE BRICE LACCRUCHE-ALIHANGA ET FREDERIC BONGO

Image
English version

Brice Laccruche Alihanga and Frédéric Bongo are purported to be fighting over the sensitive area of security and intelligence beside Ali Bongo.
Frédéric Bongo has been for several years the holder of these key areas, as well as the no less important one of the management of Ali Bongo's private domain, which he has entrusted to Nina Patricia Tsounghat and Arsène Emvahou, two relatives from Haut-Ogooué, of course.
In addition to being interested in these areas, Brice Laccruche Alihanga would also be coveting the management of the presidential palace ‘special funds.
Who will have the biggest biceps to take it all?



Traduction française
Brice Laccruche Alihanga et Frédéric Bongo se disputeraient le domaine réservé de la sécurité et du renseignement, auprès d’Ali Bongo.
Frédéric Bongo est depuis plusieurs années, le détenteur de ces domaines clés, ainsi que celui non moins important de la gestion du cabinet privé d'Ali Bongo, qu’il confie a Nina Patricia Tsounghat et Arsène…

GUIDO SANTULLO IN A CONFLICT WITH MAUREL & PROM. GUIDO SANTULLO EN CONFLIT AVEC MAUREL & PROM

Image
English version
Already engaged in a financial dispute with the Gabonese State, the Italian businessman Guido Santullo also finds himself in conflict with the oil company Maurel & Prom.
Indeed, Guido Santullo has just sued Maurel & Prom before the Paris Commercial Court for uncompleted contracts.
Guido Santullo, the boss of the construction group Sericom, is asking more than 1.2 million euros (about 800 million CFA francs), to the Gabonese subsidiary of Maurel & Prom for work done by Hydro Public Works Gabon (HTPG), one of the entities of his group; that have not been settled to date.
These works are: the maintenance of tracks and platforms as well as civil engineering on the field of Onal, near Lambaréné. But the conflict between Santullo and Maurel & Prom seems older.
Indeed, since 2015, a company, Newland Consulting, would have claimed the payment of a commission of 2.73 million euros to HTPG, on a contract linking the construction group to Maurel & Prom. But not get…

VEOLIA AGAINST ALI BONGO: GOING TO COURT. VEOLIA CONTRE ALI BONGO : DIRECTION LE TRIBUNAL

Image
English version
According to La Lettre du Continent, the termination of Veolia's contract in Gabon should move towards business courts.
The legal argument that Veolia will use is that the Gabonese state has lacked planning and public policies, and has stranded SEEG financially by not paying its obligations amounting to 36 billion CFA francs (54 million €).
To be continued.



Traduction française
D’après La Lettre du Continent, la résiliation du contrat de Veolia au Gabon, devrait s’acheminer vers les tribunaux d’affaire.
L’argument juridique que va utiliser Veolia est que l’Etat gabonais ait manqué de planification et d'orientations publiques, et a asphyxier financière la SEEG en ne payant pas ses obligations s’élevant à ce jour à 36 milliards de francs CFA (54 millions €).
Affaire à suivre donc.
