THIS IS HOW IN HIS TIME, PAUL MBA ABESSOLE DEFINED HIS CONCEPT OF CONVIVIALITY. C’EST AINSI QU’EN SON TEMPS, PAUL MBA ABESSOLE AVAIT DÉFINI SON CONCEPTE DE CONVIVIALITÉ

Image
English version
After having opposed Omar Bongo in the early 90's, Paul Mba Abessole explained his slip towards the regime by a slimy "friendly opposition" which was only a huge roguery because it was merely a way to justify what was more or less a political capitulation. He said at the time that he was putting himself at the disposal of the Republic; but since the Republic was Omar Bongo, you can deduce for yourself what was going on.
The friendly opposition morphed into the position of Mayor of Libreville, then Minister and even Deputy Prime Minister of Omar Bongo. Paul Mba Abessole pushed the conviviality to the point of kneeling in front of Omar Bongo.
When we read the article above, we can discern in it a call for conviviality with the regime. There is no other conclusion, but to say that according to this article, apparently we are too simpleminded to understand politics and how a self-respecting people should behave within a dictatorship. Apparently, one can and one …

THIS BAD HABIT WE HAVE TO ALWAYS CANONIZE AND BEATIFY PEOPLE. CETTE MAUVAISE HABITUDE QUE NOUS AVONS DE TOUJOURS CANONISER ET BÉATIFIER LES GENS

No, this blog has no reason to have a grudge against Mays-Mouissi or Marc Ona-Essangui and even less against Jean Gaspard Ntoutoume-Ayi, nor to all those who participated in the sanitarization of Olam’s economic activities in Gabon.
No, this blog does not want to hurt anyone. This is not our goal and we have never done it. We just want to get rid of the Bongo regime and find that anything that reinforces this regime is malicious.
Some readers are sending messages to ask us not to publish posts condemning the recent report on Olam’s economic activities published by Mays-Mouissi Consulting and apparently supported by Marc Ona Essangui.
To these readers we say this:
The publication of this report is essentially political and if you do not realize that, we cannot help it. Mays-Mouissi and Marc Ona Essangui were chosen to present such a report to convey a certain message and this is what Issoze-Ngondet said. When asked about this report, Ali Bongo's Prime Minister said that …

AFTER 3 YEARS OF ABSOLUTE SUCCESS, ZIDANE LEAVES; AFTER 50 YEARS OF ABSOLUTE FAILURE THE BONGOS REMAIN IN POWER! APRÈS 3 ANS DE SUCCÈS ABSOLUS, ZIDANE PART; APRÈS 50 ANS D’ÉCHECS ABSOLUS LES BONGO RESTENT AU POUVOIR!

ZIDANE IS LEAVING, AS A GREAT SUCCESS! ONLY DICTATORS REMAIN IN PLACE DESPITE THEIR LAMENTABLES FAILURES. ZIDANE S’EN VA, COMME UN GRAND ! SEULS LES DICTATEURS RESTENT EN POSTE MALGRÉ LEURS LAMENTABLES BILANS

AS ONE OF OUR READERS SAYS: « WHAT IS BEING PLAYED WITH OLAM IS SAD ». COMME DIT UN DE NOS LECTEURS: « CE QUI SE JOUE AVEC OLAM EST DÉSOLANT !»

Image
English version
According to our readers, what has just happened with OLAM is very sad. The details will eventually come out. Much money would have been distributed to soften some of our irreducibles of yesteryears.
A very wise reader points out the following points:
1. The methodology described in the report does not include any economic impact analysis model used to determine the actual impact of these activities on the economy. 2. There are only descriptive data; hence, did the government authorities refuse to provide certain information about OLAM's activities? 3. Another curiosity is that there were no thanks by the author, for the financing of the study; at the beginning of the report as is usually in this case. It looks like there is some discomfort. Yet, for McKinsey's analysis, it was clear that it was the Gabonese State that commissioned and paid for the study on poverty in Gabon. 4. Why would our brothers not clearly and openly say who commissioned the study? They did not…

HAS THE BONGO SYSTEM BECOME IMMORTAL IN GABON? LE SYSTEME BONGO SERAIT-IL DEVENU IMMORTEL AU GABON ?

Image
English version

We are in the middle of 2018. Omar Bongo has been dead for 9 years. But the Gabonese people who had patiently waited for the end of his nightmarish reign of 42 years, unfortunately find that Omar Bongo never died. His immortality is manifested daily by the presence at the head of the country of the heir that was prepared and put in place so that the regime could continue.
We are in the middle of the year 2018 and Ali Bongo is reinforcing the continuation of the regime. We risk to still having to demonstrate our patience for the next fifty years.
No one will dispute the fact that this immortality of the Bongo system is only the convergence of a long process made up of crimes (Germain Mba and Co.), co-optations (all those who since 1967 have gone to change the system from within), complicities (those who have always praised the system while turning a blind eye to the terrible repression used by the same system to stay in power), and naive people who think that the dictator …

COULD A CONSULTANT IN A DICTATORSHIP BE NEUTRAL TO THE INJUSTICE THAT EXISTS THERE? LE CONSULTANT EN DICTATURE PEUT-IL ÊTRE NEUTRE FACE À L’INJUSTICE QUI Y SÉVIT ?

Image
English version
When Frenchman Bernard Kouchner came to offer his consulting services to the Bongos, and collected billions to produce a bogus report on health insurance in Gabon, we all found that indecent in a country where the population lacked everything. We were right!
When Richard Attias came to offer his services to the Bongos, and collected billions to organize the phony New York Forum Africa, we all found it indecent in a country where the population lacked everything. We were right!
When our compatriot May-Mouissi comes to offer his talents to Olam, for the production of a report glossing over this more than ambiguous company in Gabon, should we treat his approach differently than that of Attias or Kouchner? We think not. We must remain logical with ourselves and consider the act of Mr. Mays-Mouissi similarly to those of Attias and Kouchner.
The firm Mays-Mouissi Consulting has the right to make a living. It is not us who will give them big contracts because we have neither the …

SCIENCE CANNOT BE NEUTRAL BEFORE INJUSTICE. LA SCIENCE NE PEUT ÊTRE NEUTRE DEVANT L’INJUSTICE

Image
English version
Gabon is a dictatorship. Ali Bongo is the dictator who steals, plunders, chokes and kills the Gabonese people. We do not make anything up.
Any study sponsored by the Gabonese dictatorial regime will obviously have as an end to say generally all the good that Ali Bongo is supposed to do in Gabon. The study presented by Mays-Mouissi does not escape this logic, even if the author will deny too this tooth and nails. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the success and greatness of the Olam group in Gabon. Who says Olam, says Ali Bongo.
To give more credibility to the study and make Olam's face shine better with the help of the palm oil of science, the regime has requisitioned the services of people well known to the Gabonese resistance. This was done on purpose and both parties know exactly what they are earning in this win-win arrangement. No one is naive in this matter; the members of the civil society have not forgotten what Olam represents in Gabon and what Ali Bo…

IN GABON, THERE IS NEVER SMOKE WITHOUT FIRE. AU GABON IL N’YA JAMAIS DE FUMÉE SANS FEU

Image
English version
Olam is performing miracles in Gabon; this is what we can learn from the study commissioned by the regime to our friend Mays-Mouissi. There are no other conclusions to come to when we read the rendering summary provided by Gabonreview.
We do not accuse Mays-Mouissi of anything. The report is simply implacable; his study, which was attended by the entire regime’s upper echelon, caresses Olam. This is a study commissioned by Olam and which the Ali Bongo’s bots relayed in real time on the internet.
We will not talk much but history tells us that in Gabon, when the behavior of men and women defies your logic and the one they have accustomed you to have about them, they have often found a fording for crossing. It is now necessary to listen to them with the third ear and to look at them with the third eye.
Who contacted Mays-Mouissi for this contract? Why was he chosen and not one of the many regime’ sycophants who would have taken pleasure in telling us that Olam was a divine e…

Bongo propose d’enraciner son pouvoir au Gabon avant l’élection législative
Par Katarina Hoije et Eric Mbog Batassi 28 mai 2018
-Les réformes constitutionnelles donnent au président tous les pouvoirs d'établir l’orientation politique -Le principal leader de l'opposition, Ping, évite tout pourparler avec le président Bongo

Ali Bongo du Gabon a failli perdre son emprise sur cette nation d’Afrique Centrale productrice de pétrole, lors de son élection présidentielle la plus serrée en 2016. Mais tous les signaux indiquent qu’il serait en train de s'assurer que cela ne se reproduira plus jamais.
Armé de réformes constitutionnelles en janvier qui lui donnent le pouvoir de faire passer des décisions sans consulter le parlement et qui n'imposent aucune limitation de mandats présidentielles, Bongo, 59 ans, renforce sa position depuis qu'il a remplacé son père, Omar Bongo, qui était resté au pouvoir pendant 41 ans, jusqu’à …

English version
When we remember the funny Aba'a Minko case, when we remember the Scandinavian tourists supposedly stabbed with cries of "god is great" obviously wanting to give it an islamist angle; we can only be skeptical of the announcement of an attempt on the life of a Republican Guard soldier in front of a local high school, while Ali Bongo’s procession was about to go by. Is this a way to accuse Jean Ping of conspiracy and find a way to eliminate him legally and politically before the Western chancelleries’ that are accomplices, just before the masquerade of parliamentary elections?
We will not give up ?

Quand on se souvient de la rigolote affaire Aba’a Minko, quand on se rappelle des touristes scandinaves supposément poignardés aux cris de « dieu est grand » voulant évidement annoncer un angle islamiste ; on ne peut qu’être sceptique devant l’annonce d’un attentat à la vie d’un soldat de la Garde Républicaine …

WHAT IS GLOBAL OPULENCE WORTH AT HOME IN CANADA? QUE VAUT GLOBAL OPULENCE CHEZ ELLE AU CANADA ?

Image
English version
We are told of the arrival of a new panacea in Gabon. This time, it is Global Opulence that will change the lives of the Gabonese people by opening the door to opportunities for e-commerce; you know, trading on the internet.
But in fact, what is Global Opulence worth in e-commerce in North America, that is to say in Canada and the USA?
On its website, Global Opulence defines itself as a company marketing and selling products on the internet. It does not manufacture anything and has no products of its own for sale. But it resells all kinds of products through field staff who are recruited and who receive commissions.
You can read the description of this modest company here. You are free to believe that this company will open the door to e-commerce to you, but there is absolutely nothing innovative or technological about what it offers.
Do not say: I did not know, anymore.

ALAIN CLAUDE BILIÉ BY NZE DOES NOT SEEM TO UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CULTURE AND FOLKLORE. ALAIN CLAUDE BILIÉ BY NZE SEMBLE NE PAS COMPRENDRE LA DIFFÉRENCE ENTRE CULTURE ET FOLKLORE

Image
English version
Alain Claude Bilié by Nze wants to become the promoter of Gabonese culture. But at the festival of culture that he organizes, we see very little culture but a lot of folklore. One is far from synonymous with the other.
It is often difficult to make people understand the difference between Culture and Folklore, especially in a country like Gabon where superficial discourse is well established.
In fact, dear readers, for most Gabonese and certainly for people like Alain Claude Bilié By Nze, the Gabonese identity in general (when it exists) and that of our respective regions and ethnic groups, comes down to the music, dance and traditional costumes. But if these three elements are indisputably part of our cultures, Gabon is made of a plurality of cultures, they remain make up our so-called "folklore".
Bwiti, for example, is not just kaolin on the face, the Iboga that is consumed and the harp being played. Bwiti deals with philosophy, religion and even medicine. Bwit…

MRS. MBORANTSUO, YOU WILL REMAIN A SHAMEFUL PERSON FOR GENERATIONS. MADAME MBORANTSUO, VOUS RESTEREZ UNE HONTE PENDANT DES GÉNÉRATIONS

Image
English version
Normally, the Constitutional Court should be one of the bodies of the Nation that symbolizes its unity, indivisibility, its durability in time and the equality of its citizens before the law.
But instead of being the shield of the citizens against the dictatorship, the Constitutional Court of Gabon chaired by Marie Madaleine Mborantsuo since its inception, that is to say, for 28 years, has had the task of reminding Gabonese citizens that their will and wishes are nothing in the face of the Bongo's decision to retain power for more than 50 years now.
Marie Madaleine Mborantsuo watches over the communitarized republic. Everything for herself and her clan and the crumbs for everyone else. Those who are not happy, will be sent the militias of repression.
Marie Madaleine Mborantsuo makes us suffer the personal will and the special interests of the holders of power. She dresses with legalism, what is only loyalty and servile submission to her clan.
The hagiographies she has w…
