TO DRIVE A BENTLEY IN AN AFRICAN COUNTRY WITHOUT ROADS OR SCHOOLS. ROULER EN BENTLEY DANS UN PAYS D’AFRIQUE SANS ROUTES ET SANS ÉCOLES

Image
English Version

This blog can safely say that Pierre Claver Maganga-Moussavou was not born in opulence. The decision by this man to order luxury cars for more than 650 million CFA francs, just when he and the regime to which he belongs, impose austerity measures on the Gabonese people, tells us almost everything about the ludicrous nature of this man.
But Gabon being a cash cow, many people exploit it to gain access to luxury. Maganga-Moussavou is one of them. Luxury clothing, villas and extravagant residences, luxury vehicles; he takes advantage of his privileged position within the regime, to line his pockets.
When it's taxpayer's money, they can afford to spend lavishly without any concern; while more than 70% of the Gabonese population lives below the poverty line. Gabon has lost its luster since it has been in the Bongos hands; but paradoxically, the Maganga-Moussavous were able to benefit enormously while we were being impoverished. The proof, they roll around in Bentleys i…

TOTAL SELLS ITS RABI-KOUNGA ASSETS; ANOTHER ALI BONGO ECONOMIC FEAT. TOTAL VEND SES ACTIFS DE RABI-KOUNGA; UN AUTRE EXPLOIT ÉCONOMIQUE D’ALI BONGO

Image
English Version

According to the publication Cercle Finance, Total Gabon is getting out of the oil field of Rabi-Kounga.
The French company has signed an agreement with Assala Upstream Gabon for the sale of its entire stake in the Rabi-Kounga oil field.
This transaction represents an amount of 100 million dollars, more than 56 billion CFA francs.

So is Gabon





Version française
D’après la publication Cercle Finance, Total Gabon serait sorti du champ pétrolier de Rabi-Kounga.
La société française aurait signé un accord avec Assala Upstream Gabon pour la cession de l'intégralité de sa participation dans le champ pétrolier de Rabi-Kounga.
Cette transaction représente un montant de 100 millions de dollars, plus de 56 milliards de francs CFA.

Ainsi va le Gabon

AT 66 YEARS OF AGE, HE THOUGHT HE COULD QUIETLY GIFT HIMSELF A BENTLEY, WHILE ASKING THE GABONESE PEOPLE TO ENDURE A CRUEL AUSTERITY. A 66 ANS, IL PENSAIT S’OFFRIR UNE BENTLEY EN TOUTE QUIÉTUDE, TOUT EN DEMANDANT AUX PEUPLE GABONAIS D’OBSERVER UNE CUELLE AUSTÉRITÉ

English Version
"I was hoping to be able to afford a Bentley, without things getting this hot." these words are from Pierre-Claver Maganga-Moussavou. That's all he could find to say when the scandal of his car purchase was laid bare.
But ironically, a Gabonese responds to him in Gabonreview with the following:
"Mister Maganga Moussavou, we also hope to be able to receive a remuneration without that making as much turmoil on the part of politicians. You agree on the austerity measures taken as cosmetic measures, but where is your involvement to relieve some of the non-permanent labor. Assuming that a graduate collects 300000 CFA, the financial value of your Bentley will allow them to collect their due for 28 years and 10 months, or 346 months. By reducing this due to 3 years of non-recruitment, 9 young people should receive full compensation in addition to another who would have 300000 for 22 months. Finally, Gabon still has money, the problem is elsewhere. "
Dear r…

HE THOUGHT HE COULD DECEIVE THE GABONESE PEOPLE STRAIGHTFORWARDLY. IL PENSAIT POUVOIR SE MOQUER DES GABONAIS EN TOUTE QUIÉTUDE

Image
English Version
Maganga-Moussavou is a liar. He will never dare to file a lawsuit against the Bentley dealership in France because he knows that this dealer would be able to publish the financial network through which the payments of hundreds of millions of CFA francs were made to buy Maganga-Moussavou’s vehicles; and this could be very crisp information that blogs like ours would look forward to getting.
Another thing, it will be difficult for Maganga-Moussavou to prove that it is the dealer who has disclosed the invoices. The leaks could come from Maganga-Moussavou’s entourage.

We will not give up !





Version française
Maganga-Moussavou est un menteur. Il n’osera jamais porter plainte au concessionnaire Bentley en France car il sait que ce concessionnaire serait en mesure de publier le circuit financier par lequel les versements de centaines de millions de francs CFA ont été effectués pour acheter les véhicules de Maganga-Moussavou ; et cela pourrait être des informations très croustillant…

THERE COMES A TIME WHEN SAYING NO BECOMES IMPERATIVE. IL ARRIVE UN MOMENT OÙ DIRE NON DEVIENT IMPÉRATIF

Image
English Version

It is not rare to listen to African asking: “why are we not progressing? Why are we so poor, so stagnant, so behind everybody else?”
The answer is obvious. If anybody in the future as you why is African or Gabon not progressing, just show them the video of Maganga-Moussavou, the Gabonese Vice-President, asking the people to tighten their belt because the State needs to save money; and the receipts from French car dealerships demonstrating that while Maganga-Moussavou was asking the people to make sacrifice, he was ordering luxury cars for about a million euros (more than 600 million CFA francs). This is a massive problem!
Gabon cannot exactly be called an economic success and therefore what would compel the country Vice-President to think that they deserve an allocation of luxury cars totaling a million euros (more than 600 million CFA francs)?
The Gabonese people are fed up. The Bongos have caused them the worst problems: the country’s economy is almost in a state of coll…

WHAT IF THE RESPONSE WAS THAT FUTURE OIL REVENUES HAVE ALREADY BEEN SPENT! ET SI LA RÉPONSE ÉTAIT QUE LES RECETTES FUTURES DU PÉTROLE AIENT DÉJÀ ÉTÉ GAGÉES !

Image
English Version
The question asked on the image above is relevant; why the fluctuations in the price of a barrel of oil only affect the national treasury when there is a fall in revenue? If the crisis in Gabon is explained by the fall in oil prices, why does the cash crisis persists when the price of a barrel increases?
This blog would like to propose an explanation to this recurrent situation which seems plausible to us:
Due to the mismanagement of the Bongo’s regime, regardless of the sums collected by the Gabonese treasury, the state is regularly unable to pay wages and other current bills. As a result, the regime continues to borrow because of its notorious incapacity to cope with the state's operating expenses. Domestic and foreign debt is no longer repaid on schedule. To deal with this, and to give guarantees to creditors for new debts, the regime must pledge future oil revenues. It is a common practice that these future revenues will never go to the treasury of the state and t…

MAGANGA MOUSSAVOU OR THE SYEREOTYPE OF THE LACK OF VIRTUE BY GABONESE POLITICIANS. MAGANGA-MOUSSAVOU OU LE STÉRÉOTYPE DU MANQUE DE VERTU DES POLITICIENS GABONAIS

Image
English Version
Political scientists, sociologists and historians agree on one thing; without political virtue in the ruling class, the living together of a country collapses and the most extreme excesses flourish. This is why in all the self-respected countries, the people who run the institutions that are supposed to carry the state, have a duty of absolute exemplarity.
History teaches us that people are capable of making sacrifices, but on one condition: that those who govern them have as their principle the maintenance of a certain virtue and exemplarity demonstrating their seriousness.
But in Gabon, while the rulers ask the people to accept even more unemployment, even lower wages, taxes still too heavy; the corruption of these rulers is even more visible and the abuses of power for purposes of personal interest, too obvious.

OLAM POLISHES ITS IMAGE IN GABON, WITH THE HELP OF OFTEN COMPLACENT CIVIL SOCIETY AND PRESS. OLAM SOIGNE SON IMAGE AU GABON, AVEC L’AIDE D’UNE SOCIÉTÉ CIVILE ET D’UNE PRESSE SOUVENT COMPLAISANTES

Image
English Version
Olam is a company that is now calling the shots in Gabon. More in the bad than good sense for the Gabonese population. Thus Olam has rather a bad reputation with the Gabonese people; and it is for this reason that this company has been trying for some time to polish its image by hiring the services of certain members of the civil society and the press, who allow them to show up before the Gabonese people, in new clothes. .
This blog will always denounce the mafia practices of Olam in Gabon, an agribusiness company that finds itself in port, aviation and mining activities, only in Gabon; and that is about to lead the takeover of SEEG.
Faced with this bulimia, the Gabonese people are asked to close their eyes to the nature of the contract that binds Olam to the Gabonese government. While Olam continues to swallow large swathes of the Gabonese economy, the Gabonese people continue to have sorely shortages in almost everything: no adequate sanitary structures; non-existent, p…

AT THE TIME WHEN TOTAL IS BECOMING DISCREET IN GABON, IT INVESTS IN EQUATORIAL GUINEA. AU MOMENT OU TOTAL SE FAIT DISCRÈTE AU GABON, ELLE INVESTIT EN GUINÉE ÉQUATORIALE

Image
English Version
As another sign of Gabon's oil decline, we already know that French major Total is becoming more and more discreet in Gabon. It has been a long time since this company stopped investing in Gabon and at this moment, the relationship between this company and its employees is deteriorating.
But strangely, Africa Energy Intelligence informs us that Total has started discussions with Equatorial Guinea for the acquisition of two blocks of offshore exploration.
But these negotiations have come up against the legal problems that Teodorin Obiang Nguema has, in France and Switzerland, in the ill-gotten gains case in France, which have been confiscated from him. The discussions are purported to drag on because of that case.
When one is Gabonese, they can ask serious questions. Knowing that oil is a sediment whose pockets extend over underground kilometers and knows no boundaries; can we be convinced that Gabonese oil is exhausted while that of Congo-Brazzaville in Pointe-Noire an…

Dear readers, at a time when the Gabonese civil servants are having a rough time, at the moment when students scholarships are only sporadically being paid, at the moment when all the recruitments in the public and private sectors are frozen, Ali Bongo however, announces that he would actively recruit music teachers for his African Music Institute. This blog has only one question: how will these people be paid? With Gabonese taxpayer's money?

We will not give up!

Ce blog n’a qu’une question : comment seront payés ces gens ? Avec l’argent du contribuable Gabonais ?

ALI BONGO IS LOOKING TO SERVE PUTIN SALARY? ALI BONGO CHERCHE À SE METTRE AU SERVICE DE POUTINE

Image
English Version
According to La Lettre du Continent, funny things happened in Moscow between the dates of the semi-finals and the World Cup final.
We learn that before the World Cup, the Nigerian President Mahamadou Issoufou, who is the current Chairman of the G5 Sahel (Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso, Chad and Mauritania), had requested a meeting with Putin to ask for the support of Russia to speed up the establishment of the G5 Sahel, in order to save this region from the terrorist threat.
Mahamadou Issoufou hoped to convince Moscow to participate in this joint force that would be responsible for fighting against armed groups in the Sahel. So far, despite a multitude of promises, this setup while verbally supported by the West, including France and the US, remains moribund because of the chronic lack of funding and equipment.
The visit was decided and accepted by the Kremlin and was scheduled to take place from July 13 to 15, 2018. But at the last minute, it was canceled due to the busy agend…

THE CRISIS IS NOT ONLY ABOUT ECONOMICS IN GABON; IT IS ALSO ABOUT CONSCIOUSNESS. LA CRISE N’EST PAS QU’ÉCONOMIQUE AU GABON ; ELLE TOUCHE AUSSI LES CONSCIENCES

Image
English Version
The theoreticians of totalitarianism are formal: for a dictatorship to become permanent in time, it must weaken the people psychologically; and the best way to weaken a people is to traumatize them in the long run. The result being that this majority of people, there are luckily always people who escape brainwashing, eventually accept their condition. It is the crisis of consciousness within this traumatized people.
You will notice that in Gabon, those who accept Ali Bongo are unable, even when they define themselves as scholars, to open themselves honestly to the debate by questioning themselves and taking stock of the situation of the country objectively.
The philosopher Hegel says that in order to evaluate the state of mind of a people, it suffices to observe the state of their nation. Strong people build strong nations and traumatized peoples can only live in nations that are weak.
A strong people are aware of their right to exist in dignity. The spirit of a strong peo…

La Lettre du Continent tells us that Brice Laccruche Alihanga had a list of people whom he would have liked to have "elected", that is to say, to have appointed to Parliament. But for various reasons, Ali Bongo did not back his list.
According to this publication, Frédéric Bongo, head of the special services of the presidency and Ali Bongo’s brother, would have alerted the latter of Brice Laccruche Alihanga’s will to position in most of the country's departments, members of his movement: the Association of Young Emerging Volunteers (AJEV). Some of these arrangements are as follows:
-In the Estuary, Brice Laccruche Alihanga would have liked to place Paul Biyoghe Mba; but Ali Bongo would have decided to push Julien Nkoghé Bekalé.
- In Bitam, it is the coordinator of the AJEV and also financial director of the Society of energy and water of Gabon (SEEG), Tony Ondo Mba, that Brice Laccruche Alihanga wanted to propel. But Ali Bongo would have preferred Macaire Edz…

Apparently, there is still money somewhere in Gabon.
