  • Michael Jackson’s Thriller jacket and Bad glove escape to Equatorial Guinea with dictator’s son

    “You can have my $30 million dollars! But you’ll never get my MJ memorabilia!” That’s what you could say if you were Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, vice president of Equatorial Guinea, and son of the country’s ruthless dictator, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mbasogo. The princeling, who’s something like a globetrotting Kim Jong-Il to be, is being forced by the U.S. Department of Justice to give up his big fancy mansion, a $530,000 Ferrari, and $10.3 million bucks in funny money, all accumulated by money laundering and taking kickbacks from oil companies. The cash will be used to help the impoverished people of oil rich Equatorial Guinea, since neither the president nor vice president seem inclined to do that. However, it’s not like the US is going to cut off relations with a major oil supplier j...

  • Inside Story - Can France hold corrupt African leaders to account?

    The son of Equatorial Guinea's president has been accused of widespread corruption and money laundering, but he is not being tried for it in his home country of Equatorial Guinea. Instead, Vice President Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue has been prosecuted in the US, is being investigated in Switzerland, and was tried in absentia in France on Monday. Obiang is known for his taste for luxury cars, mansions, and expensive works of art. French prosecutors say the items were bought using illegal money - most of it in cash. They say Obiang stole $115 million from the government while he was Agriculture Minister from 2004 to 2011. They are specifically trying him for property he bought in France, including a Parisian villa worth more than $100 million. Obiang has always said he earned his ...

However, it’s not like the US is going to cut off relations with a major oil supplier just because Freedom House gave them the worst possible score for Human Rights. Hah, are you nuts? So, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue gets to keep his Gulfstream jet, his original Thriller jacket and his most prized posession, Michael Jackson’s gem-encrusted white glove from the Bad Tour, for which he paid $482,000 in the late 1980s. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Equatorial Guinea is the richest country in Africa per capita, but 75 percent of the people live on less than a dollar a day.” TRANSCRIPT So Equatorial Guinea was a Spanish colony up until 1968. It is the only Spanish-speaking country in sub-Saharan Africa. All the neighboring countries speak French, and the majority of countries in Africa speak either French or English, right? You have a few that speak Portuguese. But Equatorial Guinea’s the only Spanish-speaking country in sub-Saharan Africa. Between 1968 and 1979, Equatorial Guinea was under the rule of a brutal dictator, Francisco Macías Nguema, who took over after – immediately after independence, and within a year of being in power had kicked out all the Spanish and other foreign nationals. And within three to five more years of being in power, about a third of the population had fled the country seeking exile in Cameroon, Gabon, Spain and other countries. In 1979, the current president, President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo killed his uncle, Francisco Macías, and took over power – 1979. Today, 33 years later, President Obiang is still in power. President Obiang runs the regime that is characterized by human rights violations, by corruption. When one looks at the list of most corrupt countries from Transparency International rankings, Equatorial Guinea is always top five. When one looks at the list from the Freedom House of countries where there is no freedom, Equatorial Guinea is always in the top five. When one looks at the Committee to Protect Journalists’ list of countries that are closed, where there is no freedom of expression, there is no freedom of the press; Equatorial Guinea is always top five. So we are talking about a country that is characterized by human rights violations, a country that still tortures prisoners as a way of extracting confessions, a country that despite being the third largest oil-producing nation in Africa, third only to Nigeria and Angola, where the GDP per capita is comparable to that of Japan and France [when measured as GDP Per Capita PPP (Purchasing Power Parity) in current international dollars], 75 percent of the people in that country, in Equatorial Guinea, live on less than a dollar a day. The richest country in Africa per capita-wise, with 75 percent of the population living on less than a dollar a day. Where does the money go? President Obiang’s son owns a mansion in Malibu, California, a $35 million estate. President Obiang’s son right now, whose name is also Teodoro – there is an arrest warrant issued by the authorities in France for his arrest for money laundering and fraud. They have seized from the property owned and enjoyed by the Obiang family and friends artwork, furniture worth tens of millions of dollars. They have seized 11 luxury sport cars worth millions of dollars. And that’s where the money goes, in living a flamboyant lifestyle outside Equatorial Guinea while people in Equatorial Guinea do not have running water, while people – my nieces and nephew – must fetch water in buckets every morning, study with a kerosene lamp, go to school half-naked, without shoes. That is the situation in Equatorial Guinea today. There are seven ethnic groups in Equatorial Guinea. The majority ethnic group is about 80 percent of the population, and this is the Fang – F-A-N-G – the Fang people. President Obiang happens to be from the majority ethnic group. Territorially – looking at it geographically rather, Equatorial Guinea can be divided in, say, three sections. One is a continental side, which is on the mainland, on the continent, and then there is the island of Bioko, which is where the capital sits. The capital of Equatorial Guinea is Malabo, and that sits on Bioko. And then there is a farther island, Annobón, south of the hemisphere, and that is where I’m from. And even though you have these three regions, you still have seven different ethnic groups: one dominant one that, since independent, has controlled political power, economic power and military power. President Obiang has skillfully used the fact that the Fangs are the majority to divide the society in Equatorial Guinea. So while it is true that most people in government today are from one ethnic group, it is not true that the Fangs, for instance, in general, are discriminating against minorities. But what happened, you know, is that even among the people from the Fang ethnic group, you have divisions, and President Obiang has used those divisions and clans to give the perception that the Fang dominate the country.
