CASIMIR OYE-MBA: THE LAST OF THE ARISTOCRATS! CASIMIR OYE-MBA : LE DERNIER DES ARISTOCRATES !

Image
      English version   Each country has its men and women of the governance environment, who make the go. Public opinion is interested in these people; their actions are scrutinized, and their itineraries dissected. Often, when the people come to meet many of them, they leave disappointed because they realize that the person admired from afar, was not worth much. But there are people who, from a distance, are impressive and once you get close to them, you are still very impressed. They are real political aristocrats. Casimir Oye-Mba was one of them!   In Gabon, we can safely say that the generation of post-independence public men has known two aristocrats beyond any categories; two people who walked on velvet throughout their public lives: Paul Okoumba d’Okwatsegue and Casimir Oye-Mba.   To give you the dimension of these men, both were ministers of foreign affairs. But so was a third; the slippery Alain Claude Billie-By-Nze. But when you compare the three men, t

      English version   Casimir Oyé-Mba has died. To pay tribute to him, this blog has decided to give you its thoughts about this extraordinary man who has just left our world.   1.Casimir Oyé-Mba has the merit of having been one of the few Gabonese politicians to have had a truly brilliant career before entering politics, effectively in 1990, at the age of 48. 2.Even if practiced politics in Gabon, we still have the impression that Casimir Oyé-Mba was not made for this type of politics, in this type of country. He was far too refined, too idealistic, to do politics according to the codes used in Gabon. He always felt embarrassed in this environment crowded with superbly mediocre men and women. One often had the impression of reading on his face the expression of a man in disarray and resigned; a person who constantly wondered what they were doing there, among all this moral decay? 3.Even if he only stayed 4 years as Prime Minister, Casimir Oyé-Mba is certainly t

HERE IS THE SUMMARY OF THE LAST COUNCIL OF MINISTERS! VOICI LE RÉSUMÉ DU DERNIER CONSEIL DES MINISTRES!

Image
    English version   On the proposal of the Presidency of the Republic and the Government, the following ordinance was introduced to the approval of the Parliament and the Constitutional Court, for modification of the eligibility criteria for the Presidency of the Gabonese Republic: only Gabonese whose surname and filiation are found in the Bongo-Valentin line are eligible to stand in the presidential election. Any application from people who cannot demonstrate this filiation and who do not respond to this surname, will be considered unconstitutional and purely and simply rejected.   Done in Libreville on 13 September 2021         Version française   Sur proposition de la présidence de la république et du gouvernement, l’ordonnance suivante a été introduite à l’approbation du parlement et de la Cour Constitutionnelle, pour modification des critères d’éligibilité à la Présidence de la République Gabonaise : seuls les Gabonais dont le patronyme et la filiation

THE BLIND ARROGANCE OF THE COMIC-EPERA MONARCHS! L’ARROGANCE AVEUGLE DES MONARQUES D’OPÉRETTE !

Image
      English version   History teaches us that even real empires such as England, France, Holland, Portugal, and Spain, in the end, were not able to be held together in the face of local people refusal to be rules by them. However, what made these empires momentarily successful was that they were able to subjugate people into making them believe that being rules by distant imperials was the best thing for them. When the people discovered that it was not, the game was over for the empires. Dear readers, if these great empires did crumble, what chance do the tin pot dictatorships such as the one ruling Gabon, have?   For a while this worked, a people can be made to believe -- mistakenly -- that cooperating with the imposter authorities is the only way. But because inevitably, the dialectic between the monarchical and dictatorial perspective and that of the people, is adversarial and impermanent; at some point the conflict between would be imperial rulers and the ruled

      English version   Gabon is a land of paradoxes. Gabon remains a country to be created, developed and built. Roads, bridges, railways, ports, dams and hospitals must be built; and to do this requires good governance and the application of the rule of law.   But in Gabon, the Bongos who have ruled the country since 1967, have choosen not to build a free and democratic state, but rather a monarchy. The Bongos have not set up a government accountable to the Gabonese people; but rather a devoted court to a family that considers that running Gabon is their divine right.   The consequence is that the state coffers have become the Bongo's personal chest, and the republican administration has disappeared from the Gabonese landscape. Instead of modernizing, Gabon is about to be imposed the third monarch of the same name.   Modern countries have developed thanks to an administration whose efficiency and incorruptibility force the smooth running of the country.

WHY IS GABON SO BEHIND? POURQUOI LE GABON EST-IL SI EN RETARD ?

      English version   Gabon's international rankings, in terms of democracy, governance, corruption, education, innovation, competitiveness and business climate, as well as exports outside the mining sectors, are poor and distressing. Gabon is very poorly ranked in all areas.   When you are sick and go to the hospital, you expect to be treated by a highly qualified doctor. When you want to travel by air, you expect the pilot to be a well-trained professional. But paradoxically, to govern a young country with hundreds of thousand inhabitants, and which has enormous social, economic and governance challenges to overcome, why should we accept that an ignorant and incompetent person occupies the most important and strategic position in the country: president of the republic? Worse still, we accept that a totally unfit corpse occupies this highly important position.   To develop Gabon, the most important rule to be respected should be that the president be chosen f
