NEW YORK, NY – SEPTEMBER 26: Equatoguinean President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo addresses the 68th United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters on September 26, 2013 in New York City. 

Equatorial Guinea’s ruler, Teodoro Obiang Nguema, who seized power in a military coup in 1979, on Wednesday named his son Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mangue Vice President in charge of defence and security.

The president who was reelected in April with 93.7% of the votes promoted his 47-year old son to the position of vice president of the tiny oil-rich nation, by a presidential decree broadcast on state television.

Teodorin who, until his promotion was the second vice president, is wanted in France on suspicion of embezzlement, corruption and stealing public funds.

    Some of these Africans have to be the worst scums of the earth. He looks evil and the devil is his best friend.
    Guinea has oil, small and can easily be a stable country but no it’s one of the poorest. But his son owns all these houses in Beverly hills, Malibu dating celebrities, throwing lavish parties while their people are suffering deeply.

    Ride on brother. There is no one on the island that has a brain half the size of the brains in your family. Why even call him VP? Just make him an ascendant to the throne. Ain’t nothing wrong with it. Oppressed and suppressed people seldom have voice. You keep them impoverished and you keep them quiet. Chai. Africa will never wake up.

    Just the way Nigerian military rulers made policies to favour their people and no one dared to ask questions.
    They took Niger Delta oil and relocated it.
    Put all infrastructure in one spot. Highs school certificate is all you need to be a president because they had little education, State of origin and quota system in fields that their people lack, except the office of Presidency. They have the numbers, So they will always grab it, as people vote across tribal lines.

    Yeah, it’s all over Africa.
    A SAN, youthful, with public service experience is a vice president while a high school certificate holder , with not much public service experience except shooting, is a president!

    That’s Africa. The leaders always assume the problems are not caused by them.
