Declaration of the United FRONT of the Opposition for Alternation (The FRONT)
Libreville, November 9, 2014
Gabonese, Dear Compatriots,
Since the creation of the Opposition Front for Alternation (FRONT) on July 19, 2014, its members are organizing, while closely following daily changes in the political, economic, social and cultural scenes in our country.
Following the electoral coup of 2009, which generated a crisis of legitimacy at the presidency, the country’s life is punctuated by recurrent strikes in all sectors, including education, health, housing, public service, social affairs, all signs of widespread social unrest that are inexorably leading Gabon to an implosion. It is in this context of tension that a new book by Pierre Péan (French investigative journalist and writter), “New African Affairs, Lies and Looting in Gabon” , was released. Mr Péan previously wrote books related to Gabon, which are, “the Emir of Africa” in 1982, and “African Affairs” in 1983. These three books provide compelling evidence on the looting of Gabon and the actual identity of Ali Bongo Ondimba, who became head of the state after a serious breach of the Constitution. They show that Ali Bongo is not the blood son of Omar Bongo nor Josephine Kama.
Mr. Péan’s demonstration, supported by a lengthy investigation in Gabon, Congo-Brazzaville, and France and strengthened by numerous exhibits, now supports the two complaints filed in court in Libreville, without any action by authorities. It thus gives us reason to confirm the ineligibility appeal lodged at the Constitutional Court, during the presidential election of 2009, by one of the candidates, Luc Bengone Nsi, now a member of the FRONT for Alternation in Gabon.
These revelations confirm the commitment of the FRONT expressed July 19, 2014, to bring the matter before national and international courts.
Gabonese, Dear Compatriots,
The situation we face today starts with a conspiracy by Ali Bongo and executed, at the time, by the Minister of the Interior, the President of the CENAP (National Electoral Commission), and the President of the Constitutional Court (also girlfriend of ex-President Omar Bongo).
Indeed, while rumors rustled in Libreville about his foreign origins, Ali Bongo Ondimba tent, April 24, 2009, without any evidence, to prove his blood affiliation with Omar Bongo Ondimba and Josephine Kama. The latter tried so hard on her side at the same time, with a statement on national television to make us swallow the story of the birth of Alain Bongo, by cesarean section, at Brazzaville in 1959. At that time, c-section, as we know it, was not practiced there.
In all cases, Gabonese people require the presentation of the birth certificate or judgment of residual birth of Alain Bongo, born in Brazzaville in 1959, with Albert Bongo as father and Josephine Kama as mother. Brazzaville was, at the time, not only the capital of French Equatorial Africa (AEF), but also the territory of the «Middle Congo» (Moyen Congo). The President of the United States, faced with the same problem at the beginning of his mandate, did not hesitate to show the American people his birth certificate. Gabonese have, therefore, no need to hear about insipid and irrelevant testimony of one or another well-known family (as we can now see on national television controlled by the party in power). It is a waste of time.
This action of Ali Bongo Ondimba on April 24, 2009 was not accidental. In fact, among close relatives, the Minister of Defense, knowing the health status of President Omar Bongo, Ali Bongo Ondimba, took advantage of his absence to undertake to establish a false birth certificate, May 29 2009, at the town hall of the 3rd district of Libreville, knowing that his foreign origins could not allow him to run for the presidential seat, under the provisions of Article 10, paragraph 3 of the Constitution which provides: “Any person who has acquired Gabonese nationality can not be a candidate for the presidency of the Republic. Only his descendants have remained without interruption in Gabon can, from the fourth generation.” So there are reasons to question and examine the CNE which became the CENAP (Electoral commission), the Constitutional Court, the reliability of the various documents presented by Ali Bongo during parliamentary elections of 1990, 1996, 2001 and 2006 in the department of Djouori Agnili.
It is good to remember that compliance with the Constitution is a requirement that applies to all without exception, and that recent events in Burkina Faso must challenge the conscience of those who fiddle and violate our country’s Constitution with impunity.
Gabonese, Dear Compatriots,
The evidence is such that the City hall of the 3rd district of Libreville who made the false birth certificate, the PDG (ruling party) who has nominated Ali Bongo Ondimba, the CENAP and the Constitutional Court, which validated the false birth certificate for Ali Bongo Ondimba, have all endorsed the abuse of and participated in the conspiracy that led to the electoral coup d’etat of September 3, 2009. They become his accomplices before God, before History and before all people of Gabon, by formalizing one after another, all Ali Bongo’s applications, from deputation to the Presidency of the Republic.
The Oath on the Constitution in 2009 by Ali Bongo Ondimba is a premeditated felony, a particularly serious perjury, which is subject to high treason conviction by the High Court of Justice, in accordance with Article 78 of the Constitution.
Eager to help her brother, Pascaline Mferri Bongo descended from the top of her «trailer» to confirm with arrogance and contempt, that her father, Omar Bongo Ondimba, was the “maternity nursing” (woman part of the symbol of Gabon’s armories), her brother Ali and herself, the panthers-guardians of the temple (also part of Gabon’s armories).
The FRONT reminds Pascaline Mferri Bongo that Gabon is not limited to the Bongo family, “the maternity nursing” is the seal of the Republic of Gabon and symbol of its wealth.
As for the Panthers, in the armories of the republic, they are the symbol of the sovereignty of the Gabonese people. They can not in any case represent two individuals: Pascaline Bongo Mferri and Ali Bongo Ondimba.
By redefining the symbols of the Republic, by attributing them to the Bongo, when it is well known to all that those armories were adopted before the accession of Albert Bernard Bongo in power, Pascaline Mferri Bongo assumes our national sovereignty is hers, in violation of Article 3 of the Constitution; all of which are likely to undermine national cohesion sustainably shaking the foundations of our country.
The FRONT condemns the insults made by Pascaline Mferri Bongo when she says “… we were raised by a father who said” the dog barks, the caravan passes .. “, but this time, my brother, my family, we say “enough is enough! “We will tell the caravan to mark time to see the quality of the dogs. To know what they are saying … ”
These “dogs” are nothing other than Gabonese people. These are very serious offenses the FRONT can not accept. She will bear the responsibility with her brother Ali Bongo.
Pierre Péan’s book confirms Ali Bongo Ondimba is a forger, coupled with an usurper, head of the gabonese state.
Gabonese, Dear Compatriots,
Traumatized by ritual crimes; depleted by massive diversions operated by Ali Bongo and his “foreign legion”; humiliated by amateurism and incompetence of so-called «emergence»; wounded in his honor and dignity by the arrival at the head of the State of an usurper, also a forger; shocked and outraged by the obvious desire to «monarchisation» of the Republic by Ali Bongo, Gabonese people must now take responsibility.
That is why the FRONT calls upon all Gabonese across the country, villagers and city dwellers, political parties and associations, civil society, trade unions, to stand up as one, to kick out of power Ali Bongo who has made Gabon his private property.
The FRONT invites all forces of the nation to walk with him to drop Thursday, November 13, 2014, the complaint of the Gabonese people before national and international courts, for (Ali Bongo) the forger, to be tried and convicted.
By this act, the FRONT is engaged.
Finally, the FRONT will be announcing soon, an upcoming large public gathering within the framework of actions for the complete liberation of Gabon.
