The military in Gabon did not recognize the results of the elections and announced the dissolution of the institutions of state power

Urgent reports are coming from Gabon that the country's military has taken power into their own hands. They announced the non-recognition of the results of the presidential elections and the dissolution of the main institutions of state power.

A corresponding message was broadcast on television on behalf of the Gabonese military command. It was also added that the armed forces intend to end the anti-people regime.



As of the current moment, it is known about the unrest in the capital of Gabon, the city of Libreville (population about 850 thousand people). Shooting reported.

A general curfew has been declared in Gabon, and access to the Internet has been turned off.

For reference: the current president of Gabon (since 2009) is Ali Bongo Ondimba, the son of the previous president of the country, Omar Bongo. Bongo Jr. spent all his childhood and youth in France, was educated at the Sorbonne University.

It should be noted that in 2019, the Gabonese military has already attempted a rebellion. Then they announced the creation of a new national government, which they called counteracting French colonialism. However, within a few days, not without the participation of the French secret services, the leaders of the rebellion were eliminated, and Bongo Jr. continued his presidency.

Gabon is a small African country with a population of about 2,5 million people, has access to the sea (Atlantic Ocean), the political system is a presidential republic. It has a high HDI - human development index. The country's GDP is estimated at $42 billion. In terms of GDP per capita, Gabon bypasses such developing countries as Egypt, Algeria, Vietnam, Jordan, Tunisia, India, Morocco. By African standards, Gabon is considered quite prosperous country from an economic point of view. At the same time, the lion's share of its production complex, including subsoil development, belongs to Western companies.

        Gabon has been considered an independent state since 1960. Gabon is considered one of the richest and most stable states on the African continent. In terms of GDP per capita in 2009 - 13,9 thousand dollars, it ranks 3rd after Equatorial Guinea and the Seychelles, at the same time - 81st in the world in this indicator. Since the late 1960s, the main source of the country's prosperity has been oil production, the export of which brings about 75% of state budget revenues. Bowels of Gabon rich in uranium, manganese and iron ore.
        Uranium again! Soon France will be de-energized with its foreign policy))) laughing

          By African standards, Gabon is considered quite prosperous country from an economic point of view. Wherein the lion's share of its production complex, including subsoil development, belongs to Western companies.

          Meanwhile, President Ali Bongo, the son of the long-term ruler of the country, Omar Bongo, was detained by the military, and in the capital of Gabon, local residents took to the streets and rejoice at the coup and overthrow of the president.

          Last week, the authorities announced that the Internet would be turned off for the duration of the elections. Under the pretext of excluding manipulation of the people's will.

          And the ousted pro-French president of Gabon is already asking for international support to regain power. He says it directly: "We all need to raise a fuss against the coup and the actions of the military."

          The Bongo family has ruled the country since 1960 without interruption, first the father, then the son, both oriented towards France.

          Omar Bongo liked to repeat one of his vile phrases: "Gabon without France is like a car without a driver."

        Congo, of course - to connect the Central African Republic with Gabon and access to the sea. We left the Congo in 1992. And in general, then the chain will close: Guinea-Burkina-Faso-Mali-Niger-Chad-CAR-Congo-Gabon. Nigeria and other small states of the coast will be, as it were, surrounded by this loop. In Senegal, too, everything is on the ointment ...

      Police officers. Yellow-blue flags. Is this really Kyiv?


      No. This is Gabon. The flag of Gabon. How is this flag similar to the flag of Lithuania. By the way, Lithuania now also has 2,5 million people.

      Gabon is a small African country with a population of about 2,5 million people, has access to the sea. (Atlantic Ocean), the political structure is a presidential republic.

      So one more French protege, and even by succession, they begin to remove. In this case, we can say, paraphrasing, that a good example is contagious. It's time for Macron to beat his head against the wall.

        Well kicked out, and??? Get out the Central Asians from the former fraternal republics of Russians and other Russian-speaking people were driven out. The result - no one to teach, no one to heal, no one to draw a drawing. Accordingly, national cadres have nowhere to work, and they go to mother Russia to wave a broom, carry mortar, steer a taxi, and you better know in what areas the come in large numbers are busy.
        So, I'll tell you, African non-Americans have perhaps lower qualifications than the Central Asian national cadres.

          Don't confuse who they expelled and who the Africans are expelled!
          The Western colonialists have not invested a single penny for the benefit of the people and will not. All injections of Western capital are made only into their puppet government - which already holds the people with a tough hand. This is how the CSI works (the colonial system of imperialism, there is such a subject within the framework of social science). Therefore, having driven out the French, African countries will not lose a single point in their level of development!

          But the Russians, when they go somewhere, the first thing they do is to equip the infrastructure, build communications and life facilities, raise the standard of living of the population, train and develop specialists ...
          Now it's hard to believe - but once upon a time, after the USSR entered Afghanistan, a TROLLEYBUS was launched in Kabul !!! And there’s nothing to even say with their republics: the Russians only did what they dragged, pulled, developed culture, science, arts, economics, construction ... that’s why (here you are right), when Central Asia expelled the Russians, then everything came into decline. Because their new friends - the Americans and the British - did not intend to do anything for the benefit of the population and are not going to. They have completely different goals - they don't want to invest, they want to pull :))

          at the same time, Liberville is just a logistical continuation of Franceville, next to which there are large deposits of uranium.
          as a result, the French left Niger with uranium, and now Gabon has left with uranium. very similar to the fact that France ceases to be a nuclear power. wink
