The biafran flag Le drapeau biafrais (Image: Britanica) English Version Dear readers, the importance of the book by Pierre Pean, Nouvelles Affaires Africaines, requires from us a thoughtful reading so we could draw rigorous analyzes which may confuse once and for all attempts at imposture in Gabon. The book is already a bestseller in bookstores as stocks at the FNAC, especially in the Paris region, ran out on the second day of the book being on the market. Poor Alain Claude Bilié Bi Nze, the Spokesman of the Presidency of the Republic, who predicted that the book would be a flop in bookstores! Dear readers, we know that this book is being popularized among the Gabonese masses and as such, we open a series of posts that will analyze the hot topics of the book. Ali Bongo is Biafran! The evidence on this as presented by the investigation of the book is: 1. The author of the book arrived for the first time in Gabon in 1962, at the invitation of Jean-Marc E

An excerpt of the book Un extrait du livre (Image; EJ) English Version This press release comes from the board of the Union Nationale party, through its Deputy Executive Secretary, Paul-Marie Gondjout. Gabonese, dear compatriots, This Wednesday, 29 October 2014 will be released in France "Les Nouvelles Affaires Africaines" the latest book by French investigative journalist, Pierre Péan; known among other things for having written his first book entitled "Affaires Africaines" in 1983, which was banned from sale in Gabon. Is is the same Pierre Péan who unveiled the Petainist past of President François Mitterrand in another book under the title of "Une Jeunesse Française." This new book of which we have read only excerpts on social networks, reveals in great details that Ali Bongo was not born of Albert Bernard Bongo or Omar Bongo Ondimba, as it is, and Josephine Kama, as himself and his entourage claim through a very questionable t
Marie Madeleine Mborantsuo (photo: Gabonreview) English Version Marie Madeleine Mborantsuo is President of the Constitutional Court of Gabon. She is also the mother of two children whose father is Omar Bongo; himself the adoptive father of one called Ali Bongo, a child collected from Biafra during the bloody Civil War between that Igbo province led by Colonel Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, and the central government of Nigeria led by General Yakubu Gowon. Ali Bongo and Marie Madeleine Mborantsuo therefore have undeniable family ties and it is she who validated the usurpation of power by Ali Bongo in 2009, succeeding his adoptive father after 42 years of unchallenged rule; and guaranteeing to Mborantsuo the continuation of juicy plums. More formally, it turns out that Marie Madeleine Mborantsuo happens to be the guardian of laws in Gabon. It is she who should ensure that the constitution is followed. But why do we need a constitution? A constitution is the f
English Version In a special dispatch, La Lettre du Continent is announcing under the title " Alerte à la bombe Péan sur le Palais du bord de mer," the imminent arrival on the market of the book by the journalist Pierre Péan: "Nouvelles Affaires Africaines." In this dispatch, the French periodical tells us that according to the book, almost everything in the CV of Ali Bongo is the result of falsifications; from his nationality, to his baccalaureate, through his university diplomas or his presidential victory in 2009. Another crunchy bit in La Lettre du Continent tells us that according to the book, Omar Bongo knowing that Ali Bongo had no chance to be admitted to the baccalaureate under normal conditions, would have intervened to the French authorities through René Journiac who was the Africa adviser of Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, to ask the Minister of Education at the time to orchestrate a rigging of the exam. Similar manipulations have ta
Ali Bongo (photo: Gabonreview) English version The soon to be published book by journalist Pierre Péan, "Nouvelles Affaires Africaine " in which he demonstrates publicly the full extent of the fraud that is Ali Bongo, comes to certainly put the final nail in the political coffin of that man. Indeed, dear readers, even if Ali Bongo remains in power, the reality is that today he has become nothing more than a political corpse. Too many lies, too many deceptions, too many false projects serving to simply steal public money, too much contempt for the true Gabonese people, entrenched that he is, behind his foreign legion. What Pierre Péan writes was already known by most Gabonese citizens. However, to challenge the outrageous lies spewed by the Bongo family, has always been ruthlessly repressed within Gabon. Therefore, given the journalistic authoritative nature of Pierre Péan's réputation, and the investigative standards that are required for a publishing

Trade unionists of the public administration Des syndicalistes de l’administration publique (Photo: Gabonreview) English Version In its latest issue, La Lettre du Continent analyses that for 5 years, that is to say since the takeover of Ali Bongo, social crisis seems to have settled permanently in the country. None of the three Prime Ministers, from Paul Mba-Biyoghe to Daniel Ona-Ondo, through Raymond Ndong Sima, who have been commissioned to defuse the bomb, have managed to do so with minimal effectiveness. Rather, the periodical tells us that the situation has worsened, with the consequence being the radicalization of unions. La Lettre du Continent is definite when it says that the Gabonese government is facing enormous cash flow problems that do not allow them to meet or even to palliate the demands of employees. For example, the increase in the minimum wage and payment of salary reminders to public servants are still not resolved. Regarding the National Ed

Christian Magnagna, the Gabonese Budget Minister Christian Magnagna, le ministre Gabonais du Budget (Photo: L’Union) English Version The Ali Bongo regime wants to use the announcements of increases of the Gabonese budget as evidence of the economic health of the country. Error, because it is just another exercise conjured by a regime wanting to put a smokescreen in front of its economic failures and present figures out of context as evidence of an economic upturn in Gabon. No, let’s bring these impostors back to the reality on the ground. Recently, the Ali Bongo regime announced an increase in the State budget for the year 2015 of nearly 8% over the previous year; bringing the budget to almost 3.189 trillion CFA francs. This announcement has been translated in state media, always in raving terms, as the evidence of the financial health of the country, which of course is purely and simply an intellectual deception, because obviously these people think that the Ga
