As we told you before, a real estate company called KCI is in an open conflict with Ali Bongo in trying to recover a debt of several billion CFA francs.
A judgment of the French court of arbitration has already been pronounced, asking Gabon to pay KCI. Gabon challenges this judgment. But KCI has asked for a seizure action against of the property called Pozzo Di Borgo and has suggested its sale in order to recovery the claim.
Dear readers, that's not all, because the heirs of Guido Santullo, the recently deceased construction businessman, who was in financial conflict with Ali Bongo, have also decided to ask for the seizure of the same Pozzo Di Borgo for the recovery of debts owed to them by Ali Bongo.
As you can see, bad time for Ali Bongo.

POLITICAL POLYMORPHISM IN GABON. LE POLYMORPHISME POLITIQUE AU GABON

Image
English version
Democracy should be a universal ideal. That is, one should not speak of French, German, Spanish, Japanese or Senegalese democracy. A country is either democratic or not. Only dictators argue that their democracy must have rules different from those practiced everywhere else.
Democracy must be experienced in essentially the same way, regardless of cultural, political, social or economic differences. It is a fundamental right that must be exercised in freedom, equality, transparency, and especially in the respect for the plurality of opinions.
We cannot talk about the practice of democracy in Gabon, because there is no partnership between the rulers and the ruled in the conduct of public affairs. There is no democracy in Gabon because real political competition is absent, as the massacres of August 2016 have shown.
Dear readers, we write these words to remind you that a real election involves politicians who have accepted the principles of alternation of power coming from op…

THE DEMOCRATIC FANTASIES OF OUR COMPATRIOT JEAN GASPARD NTOUTOUME-AYI. LES FANTASMES DÉMOCRATIQUES DE NOTRE COMPATRIOTE JEAN GASPARD NTOUTOUME-AYI

Image
English version
Dear readers, we do not flatter Jean Gaspard Ntoutoume Ayi in saying that this gentleman is without a doubt one of the most brilliant minds that we have had to appreciate since 2016.
This man has embodied, in his role as Jean Ping's campaign spokesperson, our aspirations, our opinions, our revolts, our hopes, and even our bitterness.
But we are amused to see that in the current context of a tug of war that continues with a regime that we know now to be obsolete, Mr. Jean Gaspard Ntoutoume Ayi devotes himself to shenanigans that his great intelligence should forbid him to get involved with.
Indeed, Jean Gaspard Ntoutoume Ayi is very talented, but the problem is that some of us are as well, and we see clearly that his campaign message saying that he wants to bring the democratic fight into the Chamber of the Gabonese National Assembly, is only a fantasy without a future. One more and certainly one too many.
Yes we believe in ideas and debates in the National Assembly, but…

ELECTIONS IN DICTATORSHIPS: CHRONICLES OF ANNOUNCED RIGGINGS. ÉLECTIONS EN DICTATURE : CHRONIQUES DE MASCADES ANNONCÉES

Image
English version
The next parliamentary elections are already written. In power for 51 years, the Bongos will continue to impose their will severely on the Gabonese people. This will be done with the participation of opposition figures who will be sprinkled with some election rewards.
Dear readers, Ali Bongo needs our electoral friends to cover himself with a democratic fleece, after his hold-up and massacres of 2016. Given the post electoral context, Ali Bongo is ready to give the National Assembly to his “chosen” to sell this as a significant step forward from Gabon towards democracy.
Dear readers, this blog clearly sees through this game and we reject all these maneuvers to the Gabonese people asleep.
The authoritarian drift of the regime will not slow down. He will continue to destroy everything in its path. All serious critical voices will be muzzled, the free media will be closed one after the other.

We will not give up.

DEMOCRACY IN A DICTATORSHIP, THAT OLD ILLUSION. LA DÉMOCRATIE EN DICTATURE, CETTE VIEILLE ILLUSION

Image
English version
The voluntary naivety of the Gabonese electoralists is frankly disconcerting. These poor devils are doing democratic gestures in a country completely locked by an old fashion family dictatorship and clan.
For this blog, this attitude of selling emptiness to the Gabonese people represents the contempt of the highest order that some people have for the population.
Dear readers, who does not know in Gabon that the current system in power in Gabon has as a motto towards the people who claim their freedom: "keep talking"? Who does not know that going to the elections organized by Ali Bongo and his almost mother Mborantsuo, is actually choosing to play the game of the ruling class that needs a semblance of legitimacy to continue to oppress us?
What is the profile of the Gabonese political landscape today? Simply a herd of people who over the years go back and forth between the regime and the opposition, often for no other purpose than to have a personal and lucrative p…

ALI BONGO’S CREDITORS WANT TO SEIZE THE POZZO DI BORGO. LES CRÉANCIERS D’ALI BONGO VEULENT SAISIR LE POZZO DI BORGO

Image
English version
According to La Lettre du Continent, some creditors to whom the Ali Bongo regime owes money, would seek to seize the building called "Pozzo di Borgo" in Paris.
These creditors would consider to sell the Pozzo di Borgo at auction to recoup their funds. This operation is said to be led by Frédéric Bérenger, the chairman of the Kontinental group who would already hold 12,000 shares of the real estate company headed by Maixent Accrombessi, which is registered as owner of Pozzo di Borgo. These shares would represent an amount of 11 million euros or more than 7 billion CFA francs, which he would like to recover.
Ali Bongo reportedly sent several emissaries to meet Frédéric Bérenger to explore an amicable settlement.
But Frédéric Bérenger is not the only one to covet the Pozzo di Borgo. The Sericom group whose boss Guido Santullo died recently, claims that Ali Bongo owns them 200 million euros. This group would also seek to seize this property and resell it in order to …

BOUYGUES IN ELECTORAL SPRINKLING IN GABON. BOUYGUES DANS LE SAUPOUDRAGE ÉLECTORAL AU GABON

Image
English version
According to la Lettre du Continent, the French company Colas, which is a subsidiary of the Bouygues group, is in the process of getting election contracts for road repairs in Gabon.
Colas Gabon is supposed to deliver the PK5-PK12 section on the national road ° 1. This work would have taken 8 years to complete 7 km of widening of a road that already existed. In other countries, this kind of works is a matter of a few months at most.
For 7 km of enlargement, Gabon has disbursed 10 billion CFA francs, or 1.4 billion per km. This funding was provided by the Budget Director, Fabrice Andjoua Bongo, son of Mborantsuo.
Ali Bongo and Mborantsuo’ son would like this stretch of road to be completed before the legislative elections of October 6 and 27. La Lettre du Continent also tells us that Ali Bongo would like to entrust to Bouygues the rehabilitation project of Libreville’s infrastructure, which should start in mid-October.
Those who say that the françafrique methods are behind u…

WHY PUTTING LEADERS ON A PEDESTAL CAN LEAD TO DISAPPOINTMENT. POURQUOI METTRE LES LEADERS SUR UN PIEDESTAL CONDUIT À LA DÉCEPTION

Image
English version
Dear readers, here is an article that recently was published in the Financial Times.


We should not invest too much hope in our heroes. A better approach may be to focus on the small insights gained from their experience

Michael Skapinker SEPTEMBER 10, 2018


When the Nobel committee awarded the 1991 peace prize to Aung San Suu Kyi, it called the then-opposition leader’s struggle “one of the most extraordinary examples of civil courage in Asia in recent decades”.
Last week, Aung San Suu Kyi, now Myanmar’s de facto leader, earned widespread international condemnation after failing to speak out after the jailing of two Reuters journalists, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, for their reporting on the killing of 10 Rohingya Muslims by soldiers and Buddhist villagers.
Commenting on her government’s failure to deal with a range of economic and military issues, the International Crisis Group said: “Rarely has the reputation of a leader fallen so far, so fast.”
Yet in the years of her house arr…

FROZEN ELECTORAL INCANTATIONS. LES INCANTATIONS ÉLECTORALES EN SURGELÉ

Image
English version
It is said that a product is frozen, mainly a food product, if this product was, after its summary preparation, cooled to very low temperature (-30 to -50 degree Celsius), in order to preserve it and be able to sell it to consumers months if not years later.
In Gabon, politicians do not even bother anymore trying to formulate new political ideas. They only indulge in frozen rhetoric. The old formulas that were stored away after previous elections are simply warmed up and re-served to a disillusioned electorate.
Dear readers, how to understand that Gabonese politicians campaign by telling the people that refusing to go to this electoral comedy would be tantamount to refusing change, as if the result of these elections would lead to some change.
Ali Bongo was rejected by the ballot box in 2016; everybody knows it. Change was proclaimed by the people in 2016. But Ali Bongo nevertheless remained in power at the cost of a massacre of Gabonese people. This is an irrefutable poli…

THE ELECTORAL THEATER IS DEPLOYED. LE THÉATRE ÉLECTORAL SE DÉPLOIE

English version
At a time when the Gabonese people are living at the pace of budget cuts, payments by pay stubs that are more and more random and rampant insecurity, actors in the electoral theater of Gabon are deploying their tents for the coming legislative elections.
Yes, dear readers, there is still a minority of Gabonese who do not feel any discomfort, at this very moment, in campaigning by swearing to us before God and men that this time, this last time, they will bring an end to this regime.
Dear readers, we are asked to rejoice in the upcoming electoral masquerade. But the turbulent little ones that we are must continue to say no and not concede anything to these people.
We will not give up !
