HONOR, THIS VALUE THAT HAS BECOME OBSOLETE IN GABONESE POLITICS. L’HONNEUR, CETTE VALEUR DEVENUE DÉSUÈTE EN POLITIQUE GABONAISE

English version
The events we are currently witnessing in Gabon are a privileged opportunity for us to question this value which now seems obsolete in Gabonese politics: honor.
When we hear some politicians who yesterday congratulated Jean Ping for his victory, who yesterday marched on the Place du Trocadero with the resistance to protest against the theft of Gabonese votes; who yesterday went on all the television channels to claim that Gabonese compatriots had been massacred like animals by a criminal usurper; now come to plead the cause of this usurper and accept to be his underlings, one realizes that the terms "Honor and Homeland" do not have the same meaning for everyone.
It can be very comfortably said that the Gabonese politicians of the period of independence, despite their shortcomings and lack of higher education, had a keen sense of duty and ho…

Another evidence of what the Bongo have done to the Gabonese people. Television is a good intellectual anesthetic.

RESISTANCE IS A STATE OF MIND! LA RÉSISTANCE EST UN ÉTAT D’ESPRIT

Image
English version

Laurence Ndong reminds us in this document that courage and heroism are necessary for our freedom. She shows us that the Resistance is above all a state of mind. It is not only the prerogative of visionary activists but also the fruit of the commitment of the Gabonese people as a whole and of all social origin. It is inscribed in our hearts and we must transmit it to future generations.
We will not give up!



Version française
Laurence Ndong nous rappelle dans ce document que le courage et l'héroïsme sont nécessaires pour notre liberté. Elle nous démontre que la Résistance est avant tout un état d'esprit. Elle n'est pas seulement l'apanage d’activistes visionnaires mais aussi le fruit de l'engagement des Gabonais dans leur ensemble et de tous milieux sociaux. Elle est inscrite dans nos cœurs et il nous faut absolument la transmettre aux générations futures.
On ne lâche rien !

APPARENTLY THE CELEBRATION WAS GREAT! APPAREMMENT, LA FÊTE A ÉTÉ BELLE !

English version

At the Maganga-Moussavou’s, the tradition wanted that in Gabon, an appointment to the government is celebrated with the family and in the company of the whole village, is respected.
Champagne for some, beer cans for others, Orangina for minors; the family had reason to be particularly delighted, as the village and the family will now have a Vice-President of the Republic, a Minister of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises and a Member of Parliament.
This will, in turn, create jobs for parents who want to be councilors, chief of staff, aides-de-camp, drivers, etc.
Since the sheep grazes where it is tied up, when one has 3 sheep, they have necessarily a lot to graze. The guests at this kind of celebrations know very well that such an opportunity must be toasted!

Chez les Maganga-Moussavou, on est respectueux de la tradition voulant qu’au Gabon, une nomination au gouvernement s’arrose en famille et en compagnie de tout le village.

THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES! LA LUTTE CONTINUE!

To those who continue the fight To those who believe on elevating the consciousness of the Gabonese people. For all those who have lost their lives resisting the monster that is the Bongo regime.
This blog says that one day, dear compatriots, things will be different. One day, we will be free and we will have a country within which we will happily enjoy our lives, being the sole masters of our destinies.
Tomorrow, dear compatriots, tomorrow we will taste freedom.
Let us work harder, underground in Gabon or in exile, as the Bongo regime increases its extra-legal tactics of intimidation, silencing of activists and wholesale repression.
Our opposition to this regime must intensify and grow stronger.
We will never give up!

English version
The Diaspora on this Saturday, for the 51st time in as many weeks, has told Ali Bongo the megalomaniac, that respect for its votes symbolizes its sovereignty, and as long as he does not comply with the ballot box results, this diaspora will not give.
The diaspora on this Saturday, for the 51st time in as many weeks, has told Ali Bongo the megalomaniac, that any nation, any civilized country, free and normally constituted, can only aspire to freedom and democracy; and that the presidencies for life are all the more anachronistic, including in Africa.
The diaspora on this Saturday, for the 51st time in as many weeks, has told Ali Bongo the megalomaniac, that it was of another texture, of a different political, cultural and social fabric than those who serve as his lackeys; and that it will not be corrupted or weakened by the wear and tear of time.
The diaspora on this Saturday, for the 51st time in as many weeks, has told Ali Bongo the megalomaniac, that it will continue its…

THE FINANCIAL OFFICES REMAIN BROKEN DOWN. LES RÉGIES FINANCIÈRES DEMEURENT EN PANNE

Image
English version
Immediately after an umpteenth speech as insipid as it was indigestible, Ali Bongo was caught by the facts. His Customs, Tax and Treasury services have just announced an unlimited general strike beginning next Monday. We see that it is rather chaos that reigns in Ali Bongo’s financial administration.
Ali Bongo may lie, but everyone realizes that nothing works as promised. The Gabonese, who essentially militate in favor of the values of good governance, political pluralism, fairness of justice, human rights and freedom of the press, to come to our country, are not at all surprised.
Without being too long, we have come to repeat here that, in order to establish a constructive democracy in Gabon, Ali Bongo must absolutely leave power. Everyone agrees that the Gabonese economy is at half-mast. Everyone except Ali Bongo who continues to deny all the evidence, while everything collapses around him.
We cannot go on like that, he has to go. We will not give up !

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 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…
