English Version
New York Farine (Flour) Africa has folded its tent; its manager Richard Attias and his wife Cecilia, can go spend the billions of CFA francs received from Ali Bongo and live big on the banks of the Hudson River in New York; but one thing is certain; it is that the Richard Attias caravan leaves Gabon having badly been banged up. This degradation has been set upon them by Gabonese who are not afraid of anything, Gabonese who consider themselves citizens and sovereign of their country.
For several years, the Gabonese people are being given lessons of bravery, dignity and nationalism by an irreducible group of compatriots, who refuses to believe that we should accept everything from Ali Bongo, that we should bend our spine and suffer to see our sovereignty trampled on daily by those who think that Gabon belongs to them. If a priori, Richard Attias, through State resources made available to him by Ali Bongo, could seem strong and formidable, members of…

English Version
If one believes the French periodical La Lettre du Continent, in its latest issue, the preparations for the collision between Jean Ping and Ali Bongo are rife in both camps. They are both positioning themselves for a knife battle: here are the details.
After the turmoil of 2009 that saw Andre Mba Obame undermine the certainties of the apostles of the hereditary succession, they had resolved to thoroughly clean the political landscape in Gabon which was to return the image of Ali Bongo as natural candidate in the country. To do this, some people would have to disappear and this is what happened as a coincidence, with the rapid dispatch of Pierre Mamboundou ad patres and the affliction of André Mba Obame by a terrible disease that seems to have left him unable to participate actively in political competition in Gabon. La Lettre du Continent opens by stating that after this cleaning, Ali Bongo and his inner-circle could have be…

"Africans journalists are not competent." It is Ali Bongo’s guru, Richard Attias, who says so; by that joining the man he inherited the bride, Nicolas Sarkozy, in the exercise of insult to Africans, on their land, while taking their money; what gall! Sarkozy had said in Dakar that the African person had not sufficiently entered history; in a speech peppered with racist stereotypes. Faced with this affront, prestigious intellectuals from different African countries, published a book whose title is: " L'Afrique répond à Sarkozy: Contre le discours de Dakar," in which they denounced that arrogant, paternalistic, neocolonial, archaic, nerdy and demagogic speech. These intellectuals refused to Sarkozy to come to Africa to make a speech full of incorrect assessments on African character. They answered him in a masterful performance of human dignity. Here in Libreville, Richard Attias felt safe to say that African journalists were not at the…

If ridicule could kill, there are some who would be struck. Garry Kasparov also came to cash in with Ali Bongo, pretending to be interested in various chats and simulating games of chess against Gabonese "champions". One can imagine that if the former world chess champion would play against Gabonese, he would be faced with what Gabon can offer as the most competitive chess players. But it is not knowing Gabon, as against Kasparov and for the flashes of photographers, it was Ali Bongo’s children who were in opposition. Even at this level, they always pretend and act as impostors. What would those who justify the unjustifiable tell us? That these children are respectively ranked number one and two for chess in Gabon?

So goes the Bongos crap


Version Française

Si le ridicule pouvait tuer, il y en a qui serraient foudroyé. Garry Kasparov est lui aussi venu toucher son cachet auprès d’Ali Bongo, en faisant semblant de s’intéresser aux di…

Dear readers, there are texts so rich and interesting, that reading them is rewarding and provides an elevation of the mind. We offer the reflections of a thinking Gabonese citizen. It's heavy reading and requires endurance. But our readership is capable of absorbing contents of high density. Given the length of the text, we were not able to translate it in English.
