English Version

At the end of the Social Focus on Gabon conference that has just been organized by Ali Bongo and his communicators and propagandists, these people through pernicious articles placed in press organs with high audience such as Radio France Internationale, went on to qualify the announcements made by Ali Bongo on this occasion as a "Marshall Plan" to fight against poverty in Gabon. That much; a Marshall plan! The next time that Ali Bongo will make an announcement; the same communicators might tell us that it would be a "Manhattan Project" for Gabon! Such mimicry; such idiocy that misuse concepts completely beyond the understanding of the Gabonese regime; in short, how ridiculous! Do these people even know what the Marshall Plan was about?

Dear readers, the Marshall Plan is regularly mentioned, even by people as ridiculous as Ali Bongo, whenever it comes to solving a major problem, usually related to developmen…

ECHOS DU NORD OF THIS WEEK. ECHOS DU NORD DE LA SEMAINE

IMPORTANT WORDS FROM JEAN DE DIEU NDOUTOUM EYI. IMPORTANTS LIBRES PROPOS DE JEAN DE DIEU NDOUTOUM EYI

Image
English Version

Jean De Dieu Ntoutoum Eyi is a Gabonese journalist; he is Managing Editor of the great and vigorous newspaper Ezombolo which has often been suspended by the Bongo regimes. He is also the author of “Démocratie Dynastique au Gabon”, which describes how so very grotesquely Ali Bongo usurped power in Gabon. Recently, given the climate maintained by the regime’s press in Gabon, the newspaper Ezombolo in a direct, frank and without beating around the bush, way, speaks truths to power and its press who spend their time hiding their lack of competence and of knowledge under a barrage of inanities. We reproduce these articles from Ezombolo below; they deserve the attention of our readers. We are translating them for our English readers and will publish them in English once the translation is completed.

Congratulations to Jean De Dieu Ntoutoum Eyi who does not hesitate to fully play its role as a thinker , an opinion leader , brief intellectual !

Happy reading

English Version
Dear readers , we publish above a pretty raw video showing the results following the recent assault of Ali Bongo’s repressive forces on the students within the campus of the University of Libreville. This video shows the injuries sustained by the brave student Dropsy Lindondy Ngoye, of 2nd year of Economic Science. This video was made by insightful patriots who know what it is to have a duty for the collective memory. We publish it here so the greatest number, who often say very quickly: "Oh but I did not know!” Realize what is happening to students in particular and to the Gabonese people in general. This video was filmed on Thursday, 24 April, 2014.
We will not be long because the video is more eloquent than words. We simply ask you to consider the following questions:
1. What did this student do wrong, or illegal, to deserve this treatment? 2. What did the Gabonese people do to the Bongos to be…

THE OPPOSITION REPUBLICANISM IS A GOOD PRELUDE, BUT BEWARE... LE RÉPUBLICANISME DE L’OPPOSITION EST UN BON PRELUDE, MAIS ATTENTION…

English Version

If Ali Bongo and his regime continue to give Gabon a picture of shame and despair, as again this week security forces were fighting students; on the opposition side there is some progress; still cosmetic for now, but progress nevertheless, when one considers the mistakes of the opposition since 1990. A dynamic unification of the opposition is starting to emerge with Ping pushing things in that direction (let’s render unto Caesar what belongs to him). By meeting the board of the Union Nationale Party, Jean Ping and Jacques Adiahenot made themselves the actors of republicanism as seen in major democracies. But the problem is that: insofar as this approach is to be commended, those who have in their hands the institutions of the country are not believers of republicanism. So, what is the sco…

THE REGIME’S SECURITY FORCES INVITE THEMSELVES TO GREGORY NGBWA MINTSA’S FUNERALS. LES FORCES DE SECURITE DU REGIME S’INVITENT AUX OBSÈQUES DE GRÉGORY NGBWA MINTSA

English Version

Dear readers, as you can see from the pictures above, the repressive forces of Ali Bongo’s regime have been mobilized to prevent Grégory Ngbwa Mintsa from receiving a popular tribute by his peers, Mr. and Mrs. everybody. So it seems, even from the great beyond, Grégory Ngbwa Mintsa continues to scare them!

Tell me who your heroes are and I will tell you who you are, say the philosophers. Faced with these abject images that illustrate what the Bongo regime really is, we leave you, dear readers, with a quote from the great American industrialist Steve Jobs, Apple's creator, which summarizes the scope of the character that was Gregory Ngbwa Mintsa, and the smallness of those who continue to persecute him even in death ...

“Here’s to the crazy ones — the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vil…

THIS WEEK’S NEWSPAPER L’AUBE. LE JOURNAL L’AUBE DE LA SEMAINE

ALI BONGO IS SCREAMING HELP! ALI BONGO CRIE AU SECOURS!

English Version

What can be generally made of the recent holding of a National Council of the PDG, the ruling party in Gabon? That the tiredness of that party has a corollary in the rejection by the people of its leaders and what they still represent. That even within that party that controls everything in Gabon, it is difficult to find volunteer bards to sing Ali Bongo’s praises. That lassitude seems to have joined the ranks of that party to the point that Ali Bongo is obliged to beg his flock for a bit of enthusiasm; for some energy from them, in order to defend a record for which even the members of the PDG experience difficulty to embrace. So what to remember about this national council of the PDG? That this was the opportunity for Ali Bongo to ask for help, in a vacuum.

But if dear readers, we pushed the analysis a little further on the state of the PDG and of its President, we could say without too much risk of…

THE POPULAR FAIRWELL TO A MORAL COLOSSUS. L’ADIEU POPULAIRE Á UN COLOSSE MORAL

English Version
A moral colossus! No, the term is no exaggeration. It is with this most appropriate word that this blog would like to join the hundreds and thousands of Gabonese who today paid tribute to Gregory Ngbwa Mintsa in person at the site of the Ecole Martine Oulabou (another Martyr of the country) in Libreville, or remotely through several electronic media, including our modest blog.
These images demonstrate a very simple attachment and respect that many Gabonese as well as non-Gabonese had for the departed. Even if we do not measure it in its true value, these images in the long run, will resonate in time in a manner that will allow future generations to accurately assess the importance of the deceased in the history of contemporary Gabon. We can today predict that future generations will study the character Gregory Ngbwa Mintsa in universities; theses will be written on his work and political, social and philosophical thoughts. His writings will be listed…

A VERY SIMPLE RESPONSE TO MAX OLIVIER OBAME REGARDING THE MBORANTSUO COURT. RÉPONSE TOUTE SIMPLE À MAX OLIVIER OBAME À PROPOS DE LA COUR DE MBORANTSUO

Image

English Version

Our regular readers will wonder why waste our time responding to Max Olivier Obame’s paper, published in the excellent online organ Gabonreview, about the court that is not constitutional but that of Mborantsuo! What we answer them is that any fraud must be tackled and any lie rectified, this is what motivates this post in response to the article by this author on Gabonreview, which you can read by clicking here.

You will notice dear readers that we refuse to call it a constitutional court, because it is not! This is a personal court, that of Mborantsuo and the Bongos, whose sole purpose is to validate the elections in the desired direction of the regime. Anyone wanting to give it any other task, engages in a scam that the history of Gabon since 1990 can easily demonstrate. For us, for this blog, the paper by journalist Max Olivier Obame is an intellectual fraud (and we're nice). We will not be too long in our demonstration of …

THE CAVIAR CHARITY OF SYLVIA BONGO MUST STOP TO MOCK THE POOR PEOPLE OF GABON! QUE LA CHARITÉ CAVIAR DE SYLVIA BONGO ARRÊTE DE SE FOUTRE DES GABONAIS DESOEUVRÉS !

Sylvia Bongo among the Gabonese misery

English Version

The hypocrisy of Sylvia Bongo, the wife of Ali Bongo, knows no bounds. While all Gabonese know her lavish lifestyle at their expense because the money allowing her to live better than Croesus comes from the national treasury, this woman is once again went to dirty her white pants on the misery of the poor victims of Moanda who do not want charity, but decent and sustainable living conditions.

Unable to meet the most basic needs of the Gabonese people, the regime sends as a palliative, Sylvia Bongo and some photographers-cameramen, to promise mountains and marvels to these poor people who are at the zero degrees of poverty and vulnerability; promises that will naturally never be kept. The proof?

After haven gone to cry at the Maternity of the General Hospital of Libreville, what has Sylvia Bongo done for that hospital? Where are we today?

After having made a holdup on of…
