English version
Leon Nzouba’s mother and ancestors can rest assured, as he has been appointed Director General of the CNSS. In the Bongos’ Gabon, the carnival continues...; but we can hope that when the former workers of the CNSS will go to him to submit their problems, he will not respond with another genuflection ...
Version française
La mère et les ancêtres de Léon Nzouba peuvent être rassurés, il vient d’être nomme Directeur General de la CNSS. Au Gabon des Bongo, le carnaval continue… ; mais on peut espérer que lorsque les déflatés de la CNSS iront lui soumettre leurs problèmes, il ne répondra pas par une autre génuflexion…

English version
When you swear on the head of your mother and ancestors to "give" the baccalaureate to students and that the government you belong to, decides to do the opposite to your wishes. There is only resignation to save face. That is what Leon Nzouba has done.
Version française
Quand on jure sur la tête de sa mère et de ses ancêtres de « donner » aux élèves le bac et que le gouvernement auquel on appartient se prononce dans le sens contraire à vos vœux, il ne reste que la démission pour sauver les meubles. C’est ce que vient de faire Léon Nzouba.

THE AUDIT REPORTS OF SPENDING RELATED TO THE ROTATING NATIONAL HOLIDAY CELEBRATIONS. LES RAPPORTS D’AUDITS DES DÉPENSES LIÉES AUX FÊTES TOURNANTES

English version
Given the surge in imposture which continues to be exerted by the Bongo regime and wanting to contribute as much as possible to the empowerment of the mind of the free Gabonese citizen, we offer this relay of audits reports of expenditures made by the Gabonese government, during the celebrations of the rotating 17 August celebrations of the first decade of this new millennium. Thanks to the independence of thought of some brave Gabonese and through similarly independent sources of information, we all notice that the Bongo-State is cracking very rapidly. The illegitimate central authority which embodies it, with their equally illegitimate relays, are in their twilight... Let us build on the truth and banish imposture.
Happy reading!

THE LETTRE DU CONTINENT IS SAYING THAT PRESSURE IS RISING IN GABON! LA LETTRE DU CONTINENT AFFIRME QUE LA PRESSION MONTE AU GABON!

Jean Ping and/et Ali Bongo (photo: archives)


English version
In its latest issue, the magazine La Lettre du Continent is of the opinion that the temperature is going up between Ali Bongo and Jean Ping, who is increasingly touted as his main challenger for the presidency in 2016. This publication says that 2016 campaign has already begun, with Jean Ping strongly in the offensive and Ali Bongo on the ropes, trying to answer as he can to criticisms against his regime.
Apparently, Ali Bongo has just taken delivery of the results of a survey on the image of his regime, carried out by his intelligence services (odd choice). This survey reveals that 80% of the interview sample had a strong distrust of the Director of Cabinet, Maixent Accrombessi. The latter is described by the Gabonese as the head of the Foreign Legion. According to La Lettre du Continent, the survey also reveals that Jean Ping is likely to worry Ali Bongo during the presidential election of 2016. This periodical then says that …

ON THE EBOLA FRONT, WHILE CRICKETS ARE DANCING IN GABON, ANTS ARE WORKING ELSEWHERE! SUR LE FRONT ÉBOLA, PENDANT QUE LES CIGALES DANSENT AU GABON, AILLEURS LES FOURMIS TRAVAILLENT!

Three Ebola survivors from Liberia interviewed by the World Health Organization Trois survivants Libériens d’Ebola interviewés par l'Organisation Mondiale de la Santé


English version
While in Gabon, in the face of the Ebola threat, the regime continues to stand by in its legendary dilettantism, those for whom work and foresight are values of governance, are making significant progress against the epidemic. As you will certainly not get this type of information from the Gabonese public media, we are committed to relay to you the latest advances against this plague.
First near us, in Guinea-Conakry and Nigeria, the World Health Organization (WHO) is announcing that the situation seems to be evolving. The situation in Lagos, Nigeria, where the first case was detected in July, is now reassuring. At the present time, there are only been 14 confirmed cases of Ebola, all of them part of a single chain of transmission. They were all people infected by the initial case that was someone travel…

COULD A RESPONSIBLE REGIME MOCK GABONESE STUDENTS LIKE THIS? UN RÉGIME RESPONSABLE PEUT-IL SE MOQUER DES ÉLÈVES GABONAIS DE LA SORTE?

English version

The video above is a powerful testimony to the lightness and disconcerting casualness with which those who hold power in Gabon exercise it. Take the time to listen to the promises made by Leon Nzouba, the Minister of Education, to these students on hunger strike and their families; he swears to them that before the Tuesday following his buffoonery, everything would be fine! He even invents then and there, a formula that would allow to distribute the baccalaureate to all, here and there, but as long as these young students emptied the square of the St. Mary Cathedral, where they hold their strike and return to "sleep" in their respective homes.

Kneeling in front of students, León Nzouba went as far as to swear on the head of his mother and all his ancestors, that he would solve the problem by the following Tuesday. But we can only conclude that Mr. Leon Nzouba does not seem to have much regard for his mother and his ancestors, because to date, none of the promis…

NO DECLARED CASE OF EBOLA YET IN GABON; OK BUT WHAT PREVENTION ACTION HAS BEEN TAKEN? PAS DE CAS DÉCLARÉ D’ÉBOLA AU GABON; D’ACCORD MAIS QUELLES MESURES PRÉVENTIVES PRISES?

Image

English version
At a recent press conference, Fidèle Mengue M’Engouang, the Gabonese Minister of Health, said that the country had so far registered no cases of Ebola. If this statement may be encouraging, we must remain vigilant however, because in view of the fragility of the infrastructure and of the medical coverage in Gabon, the information from state officials may itself be considered incomplete, so not 100% reliable.
Secondly, we know that there have been already two previous Ebola outbreaks in Gabon; therefore to say that Ebola is absent from Gabon would be reckless because it is likely that this virus can reappear at any time since outbreak areas in Gabon are potentially present. The speech of the Minister of Health would have been more useful to the public if it had focused more explicitly on the prevention of the infection; that is to say, the public health measures that have been taken by his department to prevent if any, the spre…

Le 18 février 2014, à la faveur de la campagne politicienne du rapport sur la pauvreté au Gabon commandé à l’aide de fonds publics par la Fondation privée de madame Sylvia Bongo Ondimba au Cabinet McKinsey, Mr Ali Bongo Ondimba avait rendu publique sa décision de suspendre le paiement des Fonds Communs. Quelques semaines plus tard, à l'issue de prétendues « Assises sociales » chargées de proposer des solutions au phénomène de la pauvreté dans notre pays, le Gouvernement avait décidé de la création d’un nouveau mécanisme - la Prime d'Incitation à la Performance, (PIP) - présentée comme une mesure de justice sociale devant toucher 30.000 fonctionnaires contrairement au système des Fonds Communs dont ne bénéficiaient que 9000 agents selon le gouvernement. Il assurait par ailleurs que la nouvelle P.I.P dégagerait des économies de 100 milliards à l'Etat. Un calcul rapide et les quelqu…

THE DELUSIONS OF THE SPOKESPERSON OF THE PRESIDENCY: ALAIN CLAUDE BILLIÉ BI NZÉ. LES DÉLIRES DU PORTE PAROLE DE LA PRÉSIDENCE : ALAIN CLAUDE BILLIÉ BI NZÉ

English Version

The last press briefing by Alain-Claude Billie Bi Nze was once more for him and his patrons, the opportunity to dump much of their overflow of inanities into the Gabonese political debate. In this post we want to do a quick and dirty cleaning of some of these delusions.

1 When Alain-Claude Billie Bi Nze said: "We cannot put Mr. Ping on the same footing as the Head of State. Mr. Ping is a compatriot today without any electoral mandate, either local or national. He is not at the head of a political party; he has only himself and his person. We will not dwell on this because the Head of State is at the head of the country. He is working to implement a social project."

This blog’s answers: we find this sentence by a person who pretends to be cultured as the person concerned wants to insinuate, to be deeply shocking. Indeed dear readers, all of us, including Mr. Jean Ping, pay the salaries of Alain-Claude Billie Bi Nze …

“THE GABONESE PEOPLE MUST BE CRICKETS”, SAYS ALI BONGO. “LES GABONAIS DOIVENT ÊTRE DES CIGALES”, DIXIT ALI BONGO

English Version

In a moment of anthology during his recent interview with his benevolent press, Ali Bongo in a very natural manner, brought us back to the benches of elementary school by referring to the famous fable of the great Jean de la Fontaine, "The Cricket and the Ant." As you can see for yourself in the video above, he said with the authoritative tone of the perfect ignoramus who claims to hold a law doctorate and refuses to become aware of his shortcomings, the following:

"We've all been to school; we all learned the fables of La Fontaine; well today, we must be crickets, not ants."

For those who have not been to the same school as Ali Bongo, we recall here that fable which reads as follows:


The Cricket and the Ant

By Jean de La Fontaine


The cricket had sung her song
all summer long
but found her victuals too few
when the north wind blew.
Nowhere could she espy
a single morsel of worm or fly.
Her neighbor, the ant, might,
she thought, help her in her pligh…

SO ALI BONGO WAS ALREADY IN A WAY LEADING GABON IN 1984!. DONC ALI BONGO DIRIGEAIT DÉJÀ EN QUELQUE SORTE LE GABON EN 1984 !

English Version

In an interview with his press, Ali Bongo recently said the following:

"I have no problem with Mr. Jean Ping, even if he has a problem with me. I note simply that he has joined the cohort of a number of political leaders who have vis-à-vis my person and the party I represent, only hatred. It is only hatred that motivates them. There is no political agenda. We would have liked to see a political project in front of us, that could have told us how a number of problems could be solved. No, all they do is say; I have not even put the right foot down, they say it's bad before I put the left foot down. I have not yet put the left foot down, they say it's bad. So we are totally in this posture. The hatred Jean Ping has for me still surprised me. One thing that the Gabonese must know, a little historical reminder is that maybe Jean Ping his resentful toward me simply because I helped him get a job with President Omar Bongo Ondimba that many …
