GABON’S FUTURE DEPENDS ON US. L’AVENIR DU GABON DEPEND DE NOUS

Image
English version
A few days ago we published an excellent analysis of Ali Bongo’s intentions towards Gabon, by Michel Ongoundou-Loundah, which enlightened us on Ali Bongo’s desire not to yield power. Given the ongoing political, economic, and social crisis in Gabon, this blog has tried to identify the most important determinants of Gabon’s future based on four possible scenarios.
These scenarios are based on the degree of internal stability that the regime can maintain and the extent and type of external pressure or assistance the regime might receive from key international actors. The following are the four potential scenarios for Gabon’s future, listed in no particular order.
1: A compromise between Jean Ping and Ali Bongo
This scenario would be the least favorable for this blog, but may be pushed by increased international and regional pressure. It will ask that the consolidation of opposition forces into a cohesive unit around Jean Ping, accept Ali Bongo as President and agrees to par…

THE PDG, AN ANACHRONIC AND OUTDATED PARTY. LE PDG, UN PARTI ANACHRONIQUE ET DÉPASSÉ

Image
English version
Like all parties created to promote conformism, single way of thinking, and dictatorship, the PDG finds it difficult to adapt to the modern era and to accept democratic pluralism.
The PDG, and its officials, have not been formatted to the idea of sharing the political space with other parties. As the Gabonese aspire to free themselves from Bongo's political straitjacket, the PDG regime continues to tread on democracy. It is observed that:
1. The Opposition cannot organize demonstrations, however peaceful they may be, while the constitution guarantees this prerogative. In each of these popular expressions, cases of kidnappings, torture, arrests and other intimidations are reported.
2. The Justice system, supposedly independent, is at the service of the regime.
3. The National Assembly is only rubber stamping the regime’s decisions.
4. The police, the army and the security services are in the same situation.
5. The public administration is politicized.
After 27 years of plur…

ABO in the vise of the Mogabo!

Had he definitely entrusted his fate to this group of impenitent extremists? Or did Ali Bongo Ondimba simply decide to commit suicide? For everyone knows: the animators of the MOGABO, this politico-mafia nebula, only care for themselves. As long as Ali Bongo was firmly in control of the power joysticks, everything was fine, the gang of Ali Onanga, Alain-Claude Billie-bi-Nzé, Pacôme Moubelet and Simon Atangana "Ntoutoume Emane," remained hanging to his coattails. But since the electoral downfall of August 2016, the wind has turned. Under the pressure of the international community and the Gabonese resistance grouped around the winner Jean Ping, Ali Bongo resolved to let go of the ballast. Above all, because there is the threat of a trial at the ICC over his head.
Last month, in the utmost discretion, the son of Omar Bongo went to France at the request of the authorities of that country which, it must be acknowledged, still exercises…

THE FREE GABONESE WILL NOT CELEBRATE THE 17TH OF AUGUST. LES GABONAIS LIBRES NE CELEBRERONT PAS LE 17 AOUT

Image
English version
Because they denounce the dictatorship in power in their country, the free Gabonese will not celebrate the 17th of August.
Because they denounce the kidnapping of the institutions and the theft of their vote, by the Ali Bongo regime, the free Gabonese will not celebrate the 17th of August.
Because they cannot bear to observe the ever-increasing theft of the treasury and the continuously unsolved murders of their fellow citizens, the free Gabonese will not celebrate the 17th of August.
Because they reject the confiscation of power and of our natural resources, the free Gabonese will not celebrate the 17th of August.
Because they saw young Gabonese murdered because they defended their freedom, the free Gabonese will not celebrate the 17th of August.

We will not give up !

A NEW GABONESE TELEVISION CHANNEL, WHOSE MANAGERIAL TEAM IS PRACTICALLY DEVOID OF GABONESE. UNE NOUVELLE CHAINE DE TÉLÉVISION GABONAISE, DONT LE DIRECTOIRE EST PRATIQUEMENT VIDE DE GABONAIS

Image
English version
The board of the Label TV-Radio channel is composed of:
President: Mactar Sylla Managing Director: Ousmane Cissé
Other members of the Board of Directors are: Georges Wenceslas Abok, Alex Blériot Momha, Robert Armel Senou Adandé, Martin Malle, Omalle Selven Naidu.
A board which ostensibly excludes people of Gabonese origin. Is that acceptable?

NOT BE ABLE TO PAY SALARIES HAS REACHED THE GABONESE PARLIAMENT. L’INCAPACITÉ DE PAIEMENT DES SALAIRES A ATTEINT DESORMAIS LE PARLEMENT GABONAIS

Image
English version
In what is certainly a first in the history of the Gabonese treasury, for 2 months now, the Gabonese Senators are no longer paid. Welcome to Ali Bongo’s governance.
In the organization of a modern state, the Senate is supposed to be a representative assembly of the people, the second of its kind. The Senate is the second chamber of Parliament, the first being the National Assembly. The people are therefore supposed to have a double representation in the mechanisms of control of the governance of the country. That is why we talk of bicameralism.
In principle, both Houses of Parliament have exactly the same functions. They consist of:
1. To review and ratify laws 2. To guide and discuss major national issues 3. To control government action.
Dear readers, parliamentarians therefore play an essential role in the proper functioning of a State. But when these parliamentarians are no longer paid by the same state, as are the senators in Gabon at the moment, are we to believe that th…

AND FAUSTIN BOUKOUBI RESIGNED. ET FAUSTIN BOUKOUBI DÉMISSIONNA

Image
English version
Resigning, says the dictionary, is the act of voluntarily leaving an office, a function, and of expressing the will to indicate that one is no longer in a position to continue, for one reason or another.
Faustin Boukoubi has just resigned from his post as Secretary General of the PDG.
Even if the reasons for this resignation have not yet been revealed by him, it is not very difficult for this blog to postulate that they would emanate from the impossibility of Boukoubi to feel invested with the confidence of Ali Bongo and therefore with full political power, in an environment where in the Bongo’s fiefdom, everyone does as they please.
Faustin Boukoubi feeling resolutely squeezed and marginalized, seems to have preferred to leave with the last bits of honors he still possesses, in order to protect himself from future humiliations and to avoid being dismissed like a rascal.
This resignation of the one who, only a few months ago, had on behalf of Ali Bongo, supervised all the s…

ANOTHER GOVERNMENT, WHAT FOR? UN AUTRE GOUVERNEMENT, POUR QUOI FAIRE ?

Image
Emmanuel Issozet-Ngondet (photo: Gabonreview)




English version
Some are speaking of the forthcoming government that should be announced by Ali Bongo. But for the resistance, this government is of no importance because we already know that this government will be only the copy of the precedent ones, with obviously the same finality, the same results.
The Gabonese of the resistance have long known that the Bongos have no regard for what good government should be.
If the goal of a government is to protect its citizens, according to the rights set out in constitutional laws; Then we should have in Gabon a people whose fundamental rights, democratic rights, legal protections, equality rights etc., are guaranteed. Is this the case in Gabon? Of course not. Will the next government be different from its predecessors? Of course not.
If the role of the economy is to meet the education, health and welfare needs of the population, investing in education should therefore be a self-imposed priority for t…

THE GABONESE PEOPLE WILL NOT GIVE UP. LES GABONAIS NE LÂCHERONT RIEN

Image
English version
No, there is nothing to celebrate in Gabon, and the Gabonese will express this by boycotting massively Ali Bongo’s festivities for the 17th of August. The Gabonese people will demonstrate how fed up they are.
Can we celebrate imposture? Can we celebrate brutality and oppression? Can shortages of all kinds be celebrated? Can we celebrate that Gabon, once a country of agriculture and livestock, now imports almost everything? Can we celebrate the stealing because everything is concentrated and managed by incompetent and corrupt hands? Can we celebrate school failure? Can we celebrate unemployment? Can we celebrate ritual crimes? Can we celebrate rigged elections?
No, no, the Gabonese people will not give up!

ALI BONGO HAS TAKEN GABON IN FINANCIAL DISARRAY. ALI BONGO A EMPÊTRÉ LE GABON DANS UN MARASME FINANCIER

Image
English version
The press tells us, dear readers, that the crisis in which Ali Bongo has plunged the country is of an urgent and unprecedented gravity.
To bail out, Ali Bongo, who has led the country to ruin by quadrupling its debt, is looking for money everywhere. The Gabonese state has overdrafts with all its suppliers. He is putting pressure on the mining and petroleum sectors, so that those sectors would provide him with significant income immediately.
Vaalco Gabon, a subsidiary of Vaalco Energy based in Houston, Texas, was forced to accept a representative of Ali bongo, someone by the name of Felicite Essono, whose official role is to be Ali Bongo's Mission Officer within that company.
This Felicite Essono was first the Ali Bongo’s representative in the negotiations with ONEP, the trade union of the workers of the oil sector. This lady is at the same time adviser to Ali Bongo and employee at Vaalco and her role is to dictate to this company the financial wills of Ali Bongo.

ANOTHER ECONOMIC ACHIEVEMENT BY ALI BONGO. UN AUTRE EXPLOIT ÉCONOMIQUE D’ALI BONGO

Image
English version
On 18 September 2014, Alain-Claude Billié By Nze, as Spokesman of the Presidency of the Republic, summoned the Gabonese media to a visit to the wood processing factory of the Gabonese National Forestry Company (SNBG). A propaganda visit which aimed to demonstrate that the progress of industrialization of the timber industry in Gabon was effective.
On that day, Alain-Claude Billié By Nze swore that 35 billion CFA francs had been invested by Ali Bongo (as he is the State) to provide the SNBG with this brand-new wood processing plant. The factory was supposed to be equipped with the latest technology, as are all the things announced by Alain-Claude Billié By Nze.
Talking ebiliently, he announced that this factory was the evidence that the industrialization of the timber industry had become a reality in Gabon, and that through the local processing of wood, the SNBG would derive an added value that will create jobs and thus happiness and prosperity for many Gabonese households…

DIDN’T BILIÉ BY NZE SAY THAT GABON WAS NOT A MEMBER OF THE EUROPEAN UNION? BILIÉ BY NZE N’AVAIT-IL PAS AFFIRMÉ QUE LE GABON N’ETAIT PAS MEMBRE DE L’UNION EUROPÉENE ?

Image
English version
You remember, dear readers, that following the vote by the European Union Parliament of a resolution condemning the Gabonese regime in connection with the post-election crisis, Ali Bongo's Minister of Communication had stated that in any case, "Gabon is not a member of the European Union for such a resolution to be adopted against it".
The implication was for this regime's henchman to insinuate that Gabon had no lessons to receive from the EU and vice versa. That the two spheres, the European and the African, should take care of their respective selves; without any interference from one over the other.
Verbiage is good, but it is in the facts that one judges convictions.
Dear readers, it is to this same EU that the Ali Bongo’s regime went to show its hat to implore a financing of 571 million CFA francs, in order to provide for the needs of the professional insertion in Gabon.
Poor Bilié By Nze!
