MICHEL OGANDAGA, ADVISOR TO ALI BONGO, CAUGHT RED HANDED! MICHEL OGANDAGA, CONSEILLER D’ALI BONGO, PRIS LA MAIN DANS LE SAC !

Image
English version
Being an Advisor to a Head of State, in principle, is not nothing! In normal countries, such positions and functions are assigned to those with a proven track record in specific areas and whose expertise is essential to the given Head of State. But in Gabon, if a counterfeiter is President, it is not surprising that nobodies like Michel Ogandaga are his advisors.
The same Michel Ogandaga had already distinguished himself in grossly insulting the Fang of Gabon; an action which, in other countries, would have earned him at least a resignation, but in Gabon, nothing, he was maintained.
This Michel Ogandaga again on Wednesday, 30 March 2016, following the announcement of the candidacy of Guy Nzouba-Ndama, tried a very clumsy misinformation trick upon the Gabonese people, by presenting on his Facebook page, a fake scoop he described as being an exclusive interview of Guy Nzouba-Ndama in which he denied his candidacy and reaffirmed his full support for Ali Bongo.
Just like the m…

THE POSITIONNING OF GUY NZOUBA-NDAMA CONFIRMS THE BURSTING OF THE REGIME. LE DÉMARQUAGE DE GUY NZOUBA-NDAMA CONFIRME L’ÉCLATEMENT DU RÉGIME

English Version

Guy Nzouba-Ndama, President of the Gabonese National Assembly, gave a curious televised speech last week in which he castigated some in the entourage of Ali Bongo who wanted to get rid of him, accusing them of peddling hint of rumors suspecting him of wanting to run for the presidency. This Statement by Nzouba-Ndama seemed to us to be his version of "you will hear from me," that had been once promised by André Mba Obame to the same people. It is increasingly clear that the Ali Bongo regime is in continuous disintegration, and that the deep, multifaceted and persistent crisis that the country faces, is also present at the heart of power.
We must first reframe things by reminding everyone that Guy Nzouba Ndama is one of the architects of the seizure of power by Ali Bongo in 2009. In his book “Démocratie dynastique au Gabon", the journalist Jean de Dieu Ndoutoum-Eyi describes in length the central role that Guy Nzouba-Ndama play…

ALL BETS ARE OFF; GUY NZOUBA-NDAMA IS RUNNING. RIEN NE VA PLUS; GUY NZOUBA-NDAMA EST CANDIDAT

English version
It is La Lettre du Continent which first announced the news: Guy Nzouba-Ndama, the current president of the National Assembly and one of the architects of the takeover by Ali Bongo in 2009, just declared his candidacy for the Gabonese presidential election of August 2016.
On March 22, 2015, this blog published a post entitled: "THE POSITIONNING OF GUY NZOUBA-NDAMA CONFIRMS THE BURSTING OF THE REGIME" in which we revealed that in 2011/2012, while the political and economic situation of the country was tumbling, the French Ambassador to Gabon asked to meet Guy Nzouba-Ndama and during the meeting, that ambassador said that Ali Bongo was not a head of state, but a little punk and France was no longer going to back him. We did not tell you this at the time, but this information was given to us by someone who was in the room. We will republish that post because it explains the current situation.
With the departure of Guy Nzouba-Ndama, the Ali Bongo camp has officially…

FOR THE UNION NATIONALE THE FOCUS MUST BE ON THE REMOVAL OF ALI BONGO. POUR L’UNION NATIONALE IL FAUT SE CONCENTRER SUR LA DESTITUTION D’ALI BONGO

English version
In the press release summarizing their recent congress, the opposition party the Union Nationale, has decided to refrain from nominating a candidate for the presidential election of 2016, for the moment, preferring to focus its energies to enforce the obvious disqualification of Ali Bongo, given the provisions of Article 10 of the Gabonese Constitution.
This blog welcomes the decision of the Union Nationale, which is aligned with our ideal to do our share to elevate the Gabonese people and encourage respect for the Gabon and Gabon. We want a country in which any individual with an uncivil behavior toward the republic would receive the corresponding disciplinary action.
With this decision, the Union Nationale stands out from other parties and from past mistakes, and finally decides to show the best of itself at the service of the nation, because the goal of the majority of Gabonese…

Gabon: the obvious IMF recipes
In a global economic environment marked by a drastic drop in the price of oil, Gabon, which derives half its budget revenue from the black gold, may still increase its resilience and boost its growth estimated at 4% in 2015, while diversifying its economy.
This is the conclusion reached by Montfort Mlachila, the Head of Mission of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in this Central African country. And proposed measures in the short and long term.
According to the institution, Gabon must in the long term, boost its growth by diversifying its economy so that it is less dependent on oil, "which will make it stronger."
And in the short term, "the government must live within its means by doing two things: first, generate additional revenue outside the oil sector, including reducing the scope of tax exemptions. Then take a number of measures to better control the growth of the wages mass…

Ali Bongo and his CAN 2017 mascot Ali Bongo et la mascotte de sa CAN 2017


English version
Two rating agencies have once again lowered Gabon’s rating, explaining that to be the result of predictable financial shocks in the treasury of the country, due particularly to the drastic fall in the price of oil and the presidential election. The agencies say that the confluence of these factors will drive Ali Bongo to take on an even larger debt burden that will threaten the country's financial balance. But these agencies did not even have to add in their assessment, the prohibitive costs of CAN 2017, whose official mascot Samba, has just been presented by Ali Bongo, to the public. This mascot is a black panther dressed in the colors of the Gabonese football national team. The choice of the symbolism of the Black Panther does not seem accidental, in these times of recrudescent esotericism at the top of the state in Gabon.

Indeed, in its issue of 17 June 2013, the excellent magazine "E…

WHY DO THEY WANT TO CONDEMN US TO ONLY MOVE BACKWARDS? POURQUOI VEUT-ON NOUS CONDAMNER À N’AVANCER QU’À RECULONS ?

Image
English version
Senegal is a former French colony and it is a very Francophile country. Yet its democracy is alive and well. Benin is a former French colony and it is also a country that is very Francophile; yet it has just shown us once again that its democracy is one of the most exemplary in Africa. But in Gabon, as in neighboring Congo, Cameroon, Central African Republic and Chad, in short in the former French Equatorial Africa, the progress backwards has a uniform political specialty. In this space, democracy is non-existent; Why? Is it a cultural issue? Why are central Africans uniformly wrapped in a dictatorial tissue that does not seem to make concessions?
As track of reflection, we offer these video of the political evolution of Africa. They are worth it!

Le Sénégal est une ancienne colonie française et c’est un pays très francophile. Pourtant sa démocratie se porte très bien. Le Benin est une ancienne colonie française et c’est un pays qui reste aussi très franc…

IN THE BONGOS’ KINGDOM, FOOLISHNESS IS ON THE THRONE? AU ROYAUME DES BONGO, LA BÊTISE EST SUR LE TRÔNE

Image
English version
The image above is of a communiqué that recently appeared on the Twitter account of the President of the Republic of Gabon, announcing that Ali Bongo was going on an "official visit" to Franceville in Haut-Ogooué. Dear readers, that province is still part of Gabon; it has not yet been annexed by the Congo.
The President of the Gabonese Republic may not know this, but in diplomatic and protocol language, a head of state only goes on an official visit on invitation from another head of state or government, in their countries for bilateral meetings, for work sessions, or for symbolic events. An official visit typically includes an official welcoming ceremony with execution of the national anthems, military honors, one or more meetings and an official dinner hosted by the head of the host State.
In view of the statement above, it would be interesting for us to know what was the protocol that the Presidency had planned for this official visit by a head of state withi…

IS GABON’S OPPOSITION READY FOR A SASSOU-NGUESSO SCENARIO? L’OPPOSITION GABONAISE EST-ELLE PRÊTE À UN SCÉNARIO À LA SASSOU-NGUESSO ?

Image
English version
Opponents went to the election against Sassou-Nguesso, despite the locking down of the electoral system by the ruling clan. They all said to have found the formula that was going to make Sassou lose the election and impose respect for the ballot box. They all said that their strategy was secret, known only to them and their inner circles. That the people should trust them. That the people were to go vote without asking questions.
For his part, Sassou-Nguesso’strategy proved to be the same as that being always used in Gabon, and was organized in the simplest manner, as follows:
1. He started by changing the constitution 2. He imposed a total communications blackout (internet and phone) during the voting process 3. He proclaimed the results of the election late at night, after midnight. 4. He was proclaimed winner in the first round and all public demonstrations were banned. 5. He immediately put the army in the streets.
It is simply by following this recipe known to all, that D…

ATMOSPHERE OF WITCHES HUNT IN GABON, SAYS LA LETTRE DU CONTINENT. AMBIANCE DE CHASSE AUX SORCIÈRES AU GABON, DIT LA LETTRE DU CONTINENT

Image
English version
La Lettre du Continent reports an intense atmosphere of witch hunt covering Libreville, a few months before the presidential election.
First there is the startling break in the PDG, between Ali Bongo’s faction, called PDG-emergent; and the one of the dissidents which is now called PDG-Heritage and Modernité (H&M). This dissident group led mainly by Alexandre Barro Chambrier, is poised to nominate its own candidate for the presidential election, which would effectively diminished the already thin electorate upon which would want to rely Ali Bongo.
For reassurance, says La Lettre du Continent, Ali Bongo is reportedly refurbishing to his image, all electoral institutions. The services of the Interior Ministry are being transferred to Angondjé, in the district of Akanda; near the Leon Mba airport of Libreville. This transfer is due to security, because this ministry headed by Pacôme Moubelet Boubeya will be relocated in the Postal Delta building, which is the former headq…

ALI BONGO USES TAX RECOVERY AS A RETALIATION WEAPON. ALI BONGO UTILISE LE REDRESSEMENT FISCAL COMME ARME DE REPRESAILLE

English version
Following the recent statement by Chantal Myboto-Gondjout, laying bare the deception at all levels that is Ali Bongo, he has reacted by summoning the fiscal mechanisms of the republic, to try to subject Chantal Myboto-Gondjout to an intensive financial harassment that could lead her to ruin in Gabon, if she does not shut up.
Ali Bongo has just used the Gabonese treasury as a weapon of repression against all those who dare to stand against him and have economic interests in Gabon. Le Maïsha, whose owner is none other than Chantal Myboto-Gondjout, just received the visit of the tax authorities who operated a fitting of seals on its doors, therefore a closure; for supposedly unpaid taxes of 4.2 billion FCFA which were naturally liberally set by Ali Bongo himself. The tax authorities have demanded that the amount be paid within a period of 8 days. Ali Bongo has used the lever of economic retaliation to submit its critics. We'll see wha…

WHAT TO TAKE AWAY FROM CHANTAL MYBOTO-GONDJOUT’S DECLARATION? QUE RETENIR DE LA DÉCLARATION DE CHANTAL MYBOTO-GONDJOUT?

English version
Chantal Myboto-Gondjout: "Onaida Maisha Bongo was called Bongo from her birth, her father having established a prenatal recognition certificate. However he, who did not even bore the name of Bongo before 1968, how can he boast that it is he who included in the estate the name of my daughter? In what capacity could he do co, given that he is without documents? "
Annoying Gabon: Those who have the evidence, all the evidence about who was Ali Bongo before 1968, must manifest themselves before the Gabonese people. Time is short and we must end the deception. The procrastination is no longer permitted, nor excusable.
Chantal Myboto-Gondjout: "The document retrieved in Nantes by Mr. Eric Moutet, after a 5hrs wait instead of the normal 10 minutes, is a declaration of birth whose format does not correspond to that used at the time in French Equatorial Africa (AEF). It bears as an official seal, only the stamp of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs o…
