Omar Bongo Dead: End of Reign of Dinosaurs
These dinosaurs treat their countries like personal property. They consider themselves deities and woe unto those who dare challenge them.
We ordinary mortals owe plenty of gratitude to heart attack as liberally dispensed by Mother Nature. The attacks are not only MASSIVE, but so faithful they comprehensively accomplish the task which no money nor power can buy. The scoundrels may fraudulently escape tax for now but not the equalizer and only constant, DEATH.
President of Gabon Omar Bongo was not only Africa's longest serving leader but also the SHORTEST in stature. His diminished height may have been a source of personal and emotional insecurity hence the brutality meted on his perceived opponents.
With typical African BIG MAN mentality, Gabon’s PM denied Bongo’s death in Spain as earlier reported from there. But you cannot cheat death and he has eventually faced the truth by making the sad news. What is more, Bongo lost his latest wife (daughter of Congo Brazzaville President Dennis Sasso Ngueso) just two months ago.

Make no mistake, Gabon is not out of the woods yet. Ali-Ben (Bongo Junior) is the heir designate and as the present Defence minister he already has his fingers on the levers of power. Add that to the fact that his sister Pascaline (ex-FM) was the father’s chief of staff and you get a true African dynasty.
Gabon is an oil rich country with only 1.4m people making it officially one of Africa’s richest countries, but is it? No prize for guessing.
Mother Nature should expedite dishing the favour from Cairo to Harare and all the ROT SPOTS in between. That would free Africa from these dinosaurs who suffocate their people with unbridled IMPUNITY. Next customer please!
