English version In an addendum to the 2013 Finance Law, the financial geniuses of the Ali Bongo regime wrote: "In accordance with the 2012-2016 Gabon Emergent Strategic Plan (PSGE), funding mobilized from bilateral, multilateral and commercial partners is devoted to strengthening the production support infrastructure, particularly Roads, Energy and water. The ongoing execution of the 2012 strategy should reinforce the results obtained in 2011. Thus, the average maturity of disbursements would be 12 years, the average deferral at 3 years and the average interest rate would not exceed 5%. Similarly, new commitments should be contracted at a fixed rate, with a balanced allocation between borrowings in Euro and US Dollar. On the other hand, financing in national currency would remain non-existent. " The PSGE is now only a memory. It did not yield any results. The debt that this plan leaves us is however very real. Who will pay this debt? Who should we shoot
