IN THE OIL INDUSTRY, GABONESE EMPLOYEES ARE STILL TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF! DANS L’INDUSTRIE PÉTROLIÈRE, LES EMPLOYÉS GABONAIS SONT TOUJOURS LES DINDONS DE LA FARCE !

      English version   Assala Energy, the Gabonese subsidiary of the Carlyle group, is said to be in trouble with its Gabonese employees in the Port-Gentil. The situation has worsened to such an extent that Assala recently had to send three of its senior executives from the London headquarters to Gabon: the director of external affairs and human resources Caroline Sourt, the head of Health, Safety, Security & Environment Lisa Brassil and the head of the legal department Joelle Tobin.   A former French executive of Assala, dismissed in September 2020, would be threatening to sue Assala Energy before the Libreville Labor Court. The complainant's lawyer, Pierre Farge, has reportedly already written to the Gabonese Labour Inspectorate, to explain his client's recriminations. After alleging that the family of this French executive had to leave Gabon within 24 hours, when his dismissal was served to him, this lawyer is claiming to have very compromising documen

      English version   Dear readers, many of you ask us to explain the slaughter that is happening at the moment in Gabon, because many people still active and barely entering old age, are leaving us.   This blog would like to reassure you. There is no spell befalling Gabon. What is happening is only in the normal order of things from the statistical point of view, if we refer to the curve of life expectancy in Gabon published by the World Bank (above). Gabon invests little in the health of its population; and the consequence is that its population dies relatively young. It doesn't get any more complicated than that!   Currently, the average life expectancy of a Gabonese is about 65 years; which would mean that if we remove the 20% who die before the age of 20 and the 20% who live beyond 70, the majority of Gabonese do not exceed the age of 65. The concentration of mortality is between 55 and 65 years. Today, if you were born between 1956 (65) and 1966 (55),

WESTERNERS ARE MAKING FUN OF US! LES OCCIDENTAUX SE MOQUENT DE NOUS !

    To read click here Pour lire cliquer ici     English version   In an article, the newspaper Le Monde informs us that a scientific team, certainly mandated by Lee White, would have decided to place under surveillance, traditional hunters from Lastourville, in southern Gabon. These researchers would be concerned about the impact our hunters are having on our animal and plant ecosystems.   Westerners will never change. Perenco pollutes abundantly in the Ogooué-Maritime and we have never heard that Lee White asked scientists to put Perenco under observation to measure the impact that this company has on Gabonese ecology. But our traditional hunters, who have been practicing very conservative hunting methods for centuries, are under scientific surveillance. It’s a Topsy-turvy world.   What is more revolting is that there are Gabonese who accept the idea that Westerners who have destroyed their own ecosystems in Europe, where there have practically not been an
