Gabon President Ali Bongo Ondimba not ashamed of father’s wealth: When you follow in the path of your father, you learn to walk like him

Not a day goes by in the world of politics without controversy. President Obama welcomed President Ali Bongo Ondimba of Gabon to the White House. His father, the late Omar Bongo, had ruled the tiny rich oil country for 42 years and was one of the richest heads of state in the world.

Unfortunately, with the complicity of the French political class, Omar Bongo served France in exchange for staying in power by letting them steal his country’s resources. Gabon is not a dynasty but only a dynasty as long as the new servant of occidental power continues the same politics as his father.

President Obama’s policies are a continuation of what imperialism is all about: closing their eyes and putting their interests first. The White House  is clearly desperate to solve the high gas prices in the US, which affect the US economy and eventually will cost the President his reelection.

The true meaning of human rights is to not support dictators and those who steal their countries’ resources while their people live with less than a dollar a day. The voice of those without a voice is heard only when tragedy reaches the extreme limits. Clearly President Ali Bongo Ondimba is not ashamed of his father’s unjustified wealth. As the Ashanti of Ghana say, “When you follow in the path of your father, you learn to walk like him.”
