ALI BONGO’S ECOLOGICAL WINCES. LES SIMAGRÉES ECOLOGIQUES D’ALI BONGO

Image
English version
Failing to assert any economic record for Gabon at the international level, Ali Bongo begins to exhibit his environmental policy, to be noticed.
Ali Bongo would like to take the opportunity of the 24th United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP24), which will be held in Poland from December 3rd to 14th, to remind the world that he would be a champion of ecology.
For this purpose, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Régis Immongault, leads a small group that will make the trip to Poland. This team will include, Ali Bongo's Special Adviser, Tanguy Guillaume Gahouma Bekalé, who is permanent secretary of the National Climate Council (CNC) of Gabon; and Stanislas Stephen Mouba Olouna.
To please the Westerners, Ali Bongo relies on his Special Adviser Michael Fay who is American and on the British Lee White, executive secretary of the National Agency of National Parks (ANPN).

ACCROMBESSI SELLS HIS REAL RESTATE IN GABON. ACCROMBESSI VEND SES BIENS IMMOBILIERS AU GABON

Image
English version
According to La Lettre du Continent, Maixent Accrombessi traveled from London where he lives to Libreville in late September 2018; to sell his real estate assets consisting of:
-A triplex at La Sablière -A villa in La Sablière -A villa at Pointe Denis
He would have contacted potential buyers belonging to the regime's inner circle, but apparently without success.
La Lettre du Continent also reminds us that Maixent Accrombessi is still at the head of the real estate company owning the mansion Pozzo di Borgo, in Paris.

Il aurait contacté des potentiels acquéreurs appartenant au sérail du régime, mais apparemment sans succès.

THE AMOUNT OF ETIENNE NGOUBOU’S BAIL. LE MONTANT DE LA CAUTION D’ÉTIENNE NGOUBOU

Image
English version
According to Africa Energy Intelligence, Ali Bongo has made the former Gabonese Oil minister from 2012 to 2017, Etienne Ngoubou, pay a bail of 50 million francs, for him to be released on October 5th.
Etienne Ngoubou had been in pre-trial detention since 2017, for corruption. He was released on bail pending the next legal rounds that would take place by the end of the year. Meanwhile, Etienne Ngoubou would have gone to his homeland in Mayumba in southern Gabon.

Etienne Ngoubou était en détention préventive depuis 2017, pour corruption. Il a été libéré sous caution en attendant les prochaines joutes légales qui auraient lieu d’ici la fin de l’année. Entre temps, Etienne Ngoubou serait allé chez lui à Mayumba dans le …

THE DIASPORA IS NOT THE CAUSE OF THE SLAUGHTER OF THE ELECTORALISTS. LA DIASPORA N’EST PAS À L’ORIGINE DE L’HÉCATOMBE DES ÉLECTORALISTES

Image
English version
As if they had learned nothing from Gabonese politics since 1990 and well before; they who tell us every day that they are the professionals of politics, our electoralist friends went to an election that they knew to be completely beyond their reach.
We ordinary citizens, very well perceived the hecatomb that pointed on the horizon. But the electioralists reassured us. No, they had the right cards in hand this time, they were going to show us that they could beat this regime in an election that the regime had control over.
The results of the election being what they were, the electioralists are making a lot of noise, accusing the diaspora of being at the origin of their failure.
No, the diaspora is not the cause of the failure of the electoralists. No, we ordinary citizens firmly want elections that lead to the long-awaited change. But not being naive, we also know that as things stand, Ali Bongo cannot allow such elections to happen. If we know this, it means that our ele…

IN CAMEROON AS IN GABON, THE REGIMES USE THE ARGUMENT OF LIVING TOGETHER TO FORCE THE PEOPLE TO ACCEPT SUBJUGATION. AU CAMEROUN COMME AU GABON, LES RÉGIMES UTILISENT L’ARGUMENT DU VIVRE ENSEMBLE POUR FORCER LE PEUPLE À ACCEPTER LA SUBJUGATION

Image
English version
Subjugation is defined as being synonymous with submission or being conquered. In the French backed dictatorships of Central Africa, when the potentates who are enthroned there are preparing to steal yet another election, the forerunner is often a strong call for the preservation of living together; that is to say, the eternal peace.
Apparently, accepting slavery under the yoke of a tyrannical regime is a beautiful expression of living together.
But for many Africans in this area, this "living together" imposed on them under dictatorships, has become unbearable. Where is the living together in these countries, when they cannot leave their homes after 6:00 pm for fear of being attacked and robbed? Where is the living together when school leads inexorably their children to chronic unemployment?
No, living together has nothing to do with preserving dictatorships. Central Africa needs something else; another political offering; another master plan.
Those who cry for t…

LET’S AVOID ABSURD EDITORIAL SHORTCUTS. ÉVITONS LES RACOURCIS ÉDITORIAUX ABSURDES

Image
English version
The parliamentary elections have taken place. According to reliable estimates, the abstention rate was over 70%. Apparently, the Gabonese people, like us, refuse to be laughed at repeatedly.
However, we must keep our beam focused on the electoralists who against any common sense, went to throw themselves into the jaws of the dictatorship, against the opinion of the people they say they want to represent. Curious reflex, is it not?
Moreover, in the aftermath of this election which was not one, given the rate of abstention, the most prominent electoralist, Jean-Gaspard Ntoutoume-Ayi, accompanied by his running mates, went down to the streets, not to speak on the ins and outs of this election, as one would have expected him to do; but to remove their posters from the walls. This gesture was hyperbolically qualified by the above article of a gesture of good citizenry.
This is well and good, but following an election like this, in the context of abstention we know; it is expect…

MISTER JEAN-GASPARD NTOUTOUME-AYI, WHAT ARE THE CONCLUSIONS OF THE LEGISLATIVE ELECTIONS. MONSIEUR JEAN-GASPARD NTOUTOUME-AYI, C’EST QUOI LES CONCLUSIONS DE L’ELECTION LEGISLATIVE ?

Image
English version
Mr. Jean Gaspard Ntoutoume-Ayi, while we were telling you that going to the elections in Gabon in the current state of affairs, was pure madness if not a pure will of complicity with the regime, you told us that you had a strategy of taking the National Assembly from Ali Bongo and going in there to practice true democracy and encourage true governance.
But it is clear that it was us skeptics who had once again been right. The Ali Bongo regime, thanks to people like Jean Gaspard Ntoutoume-Ayi who went to participate in this legislative election, can now shout loudly that it has obtained popular legitimacy.
Mr. Jean Gaspard Ntoutoume-Ayi, now that your promises have been crushed on the refusal of the dictatorship to see you access the National Assembly, what is the conclusion of your participation in this election?
Mr. Jean Gaspard Ntoutoume-Ayi, was it not better for you to continue the battle instead of going to lend your credibility to an election competition that was nev…

Bongo devrait resserrer son contrôle sur le Gabon grâce à l’élection législative
Par Eric Mbog Batassi et Katarina Hoije Le 5 octobre 2018

Le Gabon doit tenir des élections législatives ce samedi, que le principal leader de l'opposition envisage de boycotter ; après un délai de 22 mois qui a permis au président Ali Bongo d'étendre ses pouvoirs par le biais de réformes constitutionnelles.
Le vote va probablement accentuer le contrôle du parti au pouvoir sur ce pays d’Afrique centrale dominé par la famille Bongo depuis un demi-siècle. Le Parti démocratique gabonais avait 113 sièges sur 120 à l'Assemblée nationale jusqu'en mai, date à laquelle la Cour constitutionnelle a dissous le Parlement parce que la date limite pour la tenue des élections était passée. Le Sénat a ensuite repris les fonctions du Parlement.
Les élections «n’ont guère d’importance que de renforcer l’administration actuelle», a déclaré Wilson-André Nd…

THE REAL QUESTION IS WHY THE RISK OF POLITICAL VIOLENCE IS SO HIGH IN GABON? LA VÉRITABLE QUESTION EST CELLE DE SAVOIR POURQUOI LE RISQUE DE VIOLENCE POLITIQUE EST-IL SI ÉLEVÉ AU GABON ?

Image
English version
When one forces themselves on a people through violence, is it any wonder that violence becomes the common denominator of all elections?
Insurers tell us that the risks of political violence in Gabon during the next legislative elections would be 35%; that is one chance out of three. For example, the risk of a car accident in France is 1 per 100000 motorists; that is, a probability of 0.001%.
Dear readers, you understand the gravity of the political situation in Gabon. But what will the apologists for Ali Bongo’s violence and the legitimization of this regime; who still use today the circular argument saying that refusing to go to elections is to abdicate the country to Ali Bongo?
But in Gabon, the fundamental debate will never take place because they would want to lead the electoral cattle towards its next enclosure.
We will not give up !

LA LETTRE DU CONTINENT WRITES ABOUT JEAN-GASPARD NTOUTOUME AYI’S AMBITIONS. LA LETTRE DU CONTINENT PARLE DES AMBITIONS DE JEAN-GASPARD NTOUTOUME AYI

English version
Jean-Gaspard Ntoutoume Ayi is predisposed to take the leadership of the opposition in the National Assembly. In any case, that's what we are told by La Lettre du Continent.
Indeed, despite the boycott of the one for whom he was Spokesperson in 2016, Jean Ping, Jean-Gaspard Ntoutoume Ayi is going to Ali Bongo’s legislative elections, in the commune of Akanda. Jean-Gaspard Ntoutoume Ayi will be opposed to several candidates including Joseph Minko Olenga of the PDG, who is the son of Henri Minko, a former Omar Bongo’s minister.
Jean-Gaspard Ntoutoume Ayi would be supported by the party Union Nationale and the movement Heritage and Modernité.
The objective of Jean-Gaspard Ntoutoume Ayi would be to take the leadership of the opposition in the National Assembly. The main supporters of Jean-Gaspard Ntoutoume Ayi would be:
Casimir Oye Mba Franck Djimbi Patrice Eyogo Edzang
But the promise of eradicating corruption, made by Jean-Gaspard Ntoutoume Ayi, still seems to us more than hy…

THE GUARANTOR OF ELECTIONS IN GABON IS UNDER A JUDICIAL INQUIRY IN FRANCE. LA GARANTE DES ÉLECTIONS AU GABON EST SOUS ENQUÊTE JUDICIAIRE EN FRANCE

Image
English version
Our electoral friends will be happy to learn that the one who will validate their legislative election is currently the subject of a judicial investigation initiated by the National Financial Office (PNF) in France. The accusation against Marie Madeleine Mborantsuo, yes it is her, is "misappropriation, subtraction of public funds and organized money laundering."
This instruction follows an investigation conducted by Tracfin that would have revealed significant fund movements on the accounts of Mborantsuo between Monaco and Lebanon among others. A search of a Mborantsuo’s home in Paris would have allowed the financial brigade to seize 100000 euros in cash, more than 65 million CFA francs.
And our electoralists tell us that this time Mborantsuo will uphold the law.
We will not give up!

ARE ELECTIONS A SIMPLE MECANICAL EXERCISE? LES ÉLECTIONS SONT-ELLES SIMPLEMENT UN EXERCISE MECANIQUE ?

Image
English version
The parliamentary elections are upon us. Opposition electoralist campaigners are not even ashamed to tell the public that the long-awaited moment has arrived; that it is necessary to go massively to vote because it is now or never that we will throw out this regime, by taking the National Assembly from them. We almost want to laugh!
In fact, what our friends Jean Gaspard Ntoutoume-Ayi and company ask of us is to engage in another electoral chore that will get us nowhere and instead will serve to strengthen the grip of the Ali Bongo’s regime on the country .
Our electoralist friends may think that we are all asleep in the back of the classroom and that they can promise with impunity things that they even know to be fictional.
Dear readers, we repeat to our electoralist friends that it is by the conviction of the principle that abstention is a tool of resistance, that we say no to these bogus legislative elections. It is because obtaining freedom is a struggle, that we say n…

Voyage à Loango: le pont vers nulle part Publié le 28 septembre 2018

Première partie d'une série en cinq parties
"Putain de Chinois!" Le SUV blanc descendit le long de la route en terre, nous dépassant sans aucun ralentissement. "Ils pensent qu'ils sont propriétaires de cet endroit", a déclaré mon chauffeur, Paul, alors qu'il luttait pour sortir notre camionnette d'un fossé. «Avant, il y avait des éléphants et des antilopes partout. Maintenant rien. Vous pouvez prendre une ou deux antilopes, vous savez, mais pas toutes à la fois !
Nous avons continué à passer des rangées ordonnées de baraques climatisées et une géante bannière rouge ayant des inscriptions en caractères chinois jaunes avant de traverser une rivière par un pont provisoire en acier, gracieuseté de la Chinese Bridge and Road Corporation (CBRC). À côté de moi se dressaient des pylônes de ciment géants, préfigurant l'avenir.
