  • Equatorial Guinea: Oil Wealth Squandered and Stolen

    Equatorial Guinea’s mismanagement of its oil wealth has contributed to chronic underfunding of its public health and education systems in violation of its human rights obligations. The government spent only 2 to 3 percent of its annual budget on health and education in 2008 and 2011, the years for which data is available, while devoting around 80 percent to sometimes questionable large-scale infrastructure projects. Declining oil reserves mean that there is very little time left for the government to correct course and significantly invest in improving the country’s woeful health and education indicators.

However, some of our enemies have already started criticising it, saying we're spending money for nothing. I don't know how governments should act. When we don't spend they criticise us, saying we're corrupt, diverting the money from the state. And when we do spend it on something positive, they say we're wasting money."

  • Global Journalist: Equatorial Guinea's oil curse

    At first glance, the small West African nation of Equatorial Guinea is doing well. Sandwiched between Cameroon and Gabon on the Gulf of Guinea, the oil-rich nation of 820,000 has a per capita GDP equivalent to that of the Czech Republic or Portugal. But the picture is more complicated than that. Much of its population lives in conditions similar to that in the world’s poorest countries. Infant mortality rates are worse than in Ethiopia or war-ravaged South Sudan. Many people lack access to clean drinking water and about half the population lives in poverty. A large chunk of Equatorial Guinea’s oil revenues are thought to have been lost to corruption. All this has taken place under the watch of President Teodoro Obiang, who’s been charge since 1979, when he ousted his own uncle in a mil...

Equatorial Guinea’s vice-president records his lavish lifestyle on Instagram, but it is unclear where his money comes from. He is currently being tried for embezzlement and money-laundering in France, where a verdict will be announced this week. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Meet one of Instagram's most famous playboys. He tours the world, driving fast cars and eating at the world's finest restaurants. He even gets hip-hop stars like Wyclef Jean to play at his lavish parties posting his exploits on his Instagram account. But this isn't your typical Instagram star. He's the vice-president of a country, Equatorial Guinea. A small country in west Africa with a lot of oil. Teodoro Nguema Obiang is the second-most-powerful man in the country. His father is the world's longest serving president, Teodoro Obiang Nguema. The Obiang family has amassed a fortune running into the hundreds of millions of dollars. But how have they made their money? Equatorial Guinea has some of the most opaque national accounts in the world. Per head it is the richest country in Africa, yet people live in plastic-shack poverty. The most recent figures available from the World Bank suggest that three-quarters of the population live below the poverty line. But the presidential family seem oblivious to the poverty. If the country is so wealthy, where is all the money going? Tutu Alicante is a lawyer from Equatorial Guinea who is in exile in the United States. He runs an organisation that is trying to tackle corruption in his homeland. He knows first hand how the massive theft of public money has left little behind to fund public services. While most of the population live in squalid conditions, Teddy splashes the cash, showing off his wealth on his Instagram account. Often using the hashtag luxury living he reveals a life of privilege and excess. Court papers say he amassed around $300m worldwide between 2000 and 2011, despite having an official government salary of less than $100,000 a year. The Department of Justice alleged that Teddy embezzled millions of dollars from the public purse as cabinet minister. The Department of Justice agreed a settlement of around $30m with Teddy. This year Teddy has found himself on trial again. This time in a separate case in France charged with embezzlement and money-laundering. After being unsuccessful in claiming diplomatic immunity he failed to show up to any of the court hearings. Instead, he posted videos on Instagram of himself on safari near Victoria Falls. The French court valued his assets in France at around €100m, including a large property bought for €25m in Paris. The French public prosecutor has asked for a three-year jail sentence, €30m fine, and all of Teddy's assets in France to be seized. The vice-president denies the charges. The future for Equatorial Guinea looks bleak. The president is ageing and his son is preparing to take over. The spendthrift strongmen of Equatorial Guinea are not the only presidential family in Africa who are under investigation for embezzling from the public purse. The presidents of Gabon and the Republic of Congo are also being investigated by judges in France. But Teddy's had a busy time of late posting from the beaches of Brazil to the Great Wall of China. There are plenty of countries where regulators turn a blind eye to despots who want to hide their ill-gotten gains. But their secrets are increasingly being leaked and it helps if the autocrats themselves do the leaking, via Instagram. Daily Watch: mind-stretching short films throughout the working week.

Champagne-fuelled parties, private jets, the Batmobile and James Bond SUBMARINE: Extraordinary spending of African dictator's playboy son on trial for using his impoverished people's cash to fund five star lifestyle Playboy son of Africa's longest serving dictator is on trial over spending in Paris Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue accused of using public funds for life of luxury Equatorial Guinea chief's son allegedly had gilded life as people live in poverty Obiang chronicled alleged spending on Instagram using #luxuryliving hashtag Posted photos of himself partying with semi-naked women, sipping champagne, enjoying helicopter rides, eating in five-star restaurants and driving super cars Obiang is being tried in the French capital in his absence; he remains in Africa The playboy son of Africa's longest serving dictator on trial in Paris accused of siphoning off millions of pounds from his impoverished country has chronicled his life of luxury in hundreds of extraordinary social media posts. Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, 47, who was made Equatorial Guinea's vice-president and security chief by his father, is pictured skiing, abseiling, scuba diving, walking with lions, partying with semi-naked women, sipping champagne, enjoying helicopter rides, eating in five-star restaurants and driving super cars, top-of-the-range motorbikes, speed boats and submersibles around a series of palatial estates. Posting under the name Teddy Nguema, often using the hashtag #luxuryliving, he reveals a life of astonishing wealth and privilege at a time when three quarters of the population of his tiny, oil-rich west African nation live below the poverty line. Over the past three years, more than 800 photographs show Obiang on holiday and attending sports tournaments, beer festivals and carnivals in Tahiti, Hawaii, Capri, Portofino, St Bart's, Trinidad and Tobago, Hong Kong, Aruba, Dubai, Brazil, Switzerland, Cuba, Germany and the Bahamas. There are multiple selfies and pictures taken by underlings of the dapper, bespectacled bachelor dressed in slick suits, carrying a silver-topped cane and wearing a Patek Philippe watch, as well as on board a private jet, bedecked with gold-plated crests, floral decorations and even gilded tissue boxes. Others show him driving contraptions including what appears to be a Batmobile, a £44,000, futuristic Tron motorbike and a submersible vessel decorated like a fish called a Sea Breacher. Sycophantic comments below the pictures include: 'Our beloved vice-president, pride of the African youth', 'très charismatique!!!' and 'Yes my uncle, a large and powerful look'. But others indicate the fury felt by some of his countrymen about his profligate lifestyle in a nation where the United Nations estimates that 20 per cent of children die before the age of five and more than half the population has no access to clean drinking water. 'You're spending money on silly things and here I am unable to afford even bread,' one post remarked. Obiang gives a nod to his official role in government, posting insider pictures from state visits to the capital Malabo by the presidents of Nigeria, Gabon, Benin and Ivory Coast, a summit of African and Arab leaders in November, his own visit earlier that month to Egypt and even a photo-op with Barack and Michelle Obama at a United Nations General Assembly. The account also offers a glimpse into the private life of the dynastic Obiang family, showing the opulence of the presidential palace compound that takes up the eastern half of the Bay of Malabo, and a series of lavish birthday, Christmas and New Year's celebrations including, this year, President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo in a Santa hat. President Obiang, who was once a prison governor, came to power in the former Spanish colony of just 750,000 people by toppling then executing his uncle in 1979. He has since won a series of elections in his country with a dubious 90 per cent or more share of the vote. His opponents allege that he dabbles in cannibalism and rights groups claim his regime suppresses dissent with a time-honoured combination of arbitrary arrests, torture and extra-judicial killings. Simon Mann, the Eton-educated mercenary was convicted of attempting to overthrow the president in the now notorious Wonga Coup which Mann claimed was backed by Sir Mark Thatcher. Mr Mann was released after less than a year in custody when Mr Obiang granted him a presidential pardon. Mr Mann's wife Amanda later described the dictator as a 'lovely lovely man' who sent his personal chef to cook for her husband – and said she sent him a book about the New Forest to say thank you.

Equatorial Guinea’s mismanagement of its oil wealth has contributed to chronic underfunding of its public health and education systems in violation of its human rights obligations. The government spent only 2 to 3 percent of its annual budget on health and education in 2008 and 2011, the years for which data is available, while devoting around 80 percent to sometimes questionable large-scale infrastructure projects. Declining oil reserves mean that there is very little time left for the government to correct course and significantly invest in improving the country’s woeful health and education indicators.

Footage and photos from the 2011 AU summit in Malabo at the Sipopo conference centre. Features the voice of Equatorial Guinea's President Teodoro Obiang defending the money spent on building the conference venue. "The investment that was made in Sipopo, we think is profitable. However, some of our enemies have already started criticising it, saying we're spending money for nothing. I don't know how governments should act. When we don't spend they criticise us, saying we're corrupt, diverting the money from the state. And when we do spend it on something positive, they say we're wasting money."

At first glance, the small West African nation of Equatorial Guinea is doing well. Sandwiched between Cameroon and Gabon on the Gulf of Guinea, the oil-rich nation of 820,000 has a per capita GDP equivalent to that of the Czech Republic or Portugal. But the picture is more complicated than that. Much of its population lives in conditions similar to that in the world’s poorest countries. Infant mortality rates are worse than in Ethiopia or war-ravaged South Sudan. Many people lack access to clean drinking water and about half the population lives in poverty. A large chunk of Equatorial Guinea’s oil revenues are thought to have been lost to corruption. All this has taken place under the watch of President Teodoro Obiang, who’s been charge since 1979, when he ousted his own uncle in a military coup. From the capital Malabo, Obiang has ruled with an iron fist as his son, the country’s second vice president, has made headlines around the world for lavish spending on a fleet of Ferraris and Bentleys, mansions in Malibu and Paris, for acquiring perhaps the world’s greatest collection of Michael Jackson memorabilia. When it comes to media, Equatorial Guinea ranks near the bottom of Reporters Without Borders World Press Freedom Index, grouped in with countries like China, Somalia and Iran. All broadcast media in the country is controlled by the government and there is virtually no private press. Our guests this week: *Tutu Alicante (@TutuAlicante), Executive Director of Equatorial Guinea Justice, a human rights group. *Tawanda Kanhema (@KanhemaPhoto), the producer of the 2014 documentary “The Prince of Malabo: Power, Money and Impunity,” which examines corruption in the country. He’s also a producer for Al-Jazeera’s digital news platform AJ +. *Oscar Scafidi (@BradtEGguide), a travel writer who is the author of the upcoming Bradt Guide to Equatorial Guinea and a business risk consultant on Africa.
