YOWERI MUSEVENI UGANDA

As with so many African leaders, Museveni started off in 1986 with hope for real change. But now, with corruption widespread, he just can’t leave it. Last February, he embarked on his fifth presidential term following campaign irregularities, thuggery and detention of political opponents. President Obama recently told African Union leaders that “nobody should be president for life.” Museveni claims that this will be his last, but few believe him.

ROBERT MUGABE ZIMBABWE

At 92, Mugabe appears determined to hang on. When Zimbabwe gained independence in 1980, many felt it would become Africa’s new economic hub. Aspirations were high, particularly among the young, while the remaining whites felt they could work with him. But visions of Mugabe becoming a second Mandela quickly dissipated. His crudely corrupt and repressive ZANU-PF regime has indulged in crimes against humanity, racism and policies that economically ruined the country.

PAUL BIYA CAMEROON

In power since 1975, first as prime minister, then president, Biya won his sixth term in 2011 after ridding the Constitution of term limits. At 83, he embraces a sense of governance politely described as ‘lackadaisical’. Nevertheless, he is considered to be the richest man in Cameroon with over 100 million dollars. His supporters are ‘urging’ him to run again in 2018, but past elections have proven a sham with “international observers” paid to declare them clean.

TEODORO OBIANG NGUEMA MBASOGO Equatorial Guinea

Africa’s longest ruler since 1979, Obiang has done well for himself – and his family – from the revenue produced by his oil-rich country and the US companies doing business there. Despite having one of the world’s highest per capita incomes, the country has not experienced such theoretical prosperity. Equatorial Guinea ranks terribly (138th) in the UN Development Index; most people do not have clean water and suffer from one of the highest infant mortality rates: 20 percent die before the age of five.

OMAR HASSAN AL-BASHIR SUDAN

The fact that the International Criminal Court has indicted him for genocide does not particularly bother Bashir, who has been in power since 1989. Supported by fellow African leaders, but also the Muslim world, he has remained one of Africa’s most enduring heads of state. Ruling with an iron fist, he was re-elected in 2015 by 94% (allegedly) of voters with opposition parties desisting. Renowned for his corruption, Bashir – according to Wikileaks – has siphoned over nine billion dollars of Sudan’s funds into UK bank accounts. NEXT PAGE >

JOSE EDUARDO DOS SANTOS ANGOLA

For a nation that still begs for humanitarian support, oil-rich Angola should rank as one of the continent’s wealthiest. Yet, considered by Transparency International as one of its most corrupt, there is very little trickle down. Two-thirds of its people live below the poverty line. In power for nearly four decades, Dos Santos is Africa’s richest president. He unabashedly runs his country like his own private investment firm and is believed to have amassed over 20 billion dollars. Last March, he promised to step down in 2018, but has made such pledges before – and reneged.

IDRISS DEBY CHAD

Another leader who ensures that his elitist supporters and corrupt civil servants enjoy the good life with spacious villas and other privileges, while the bulk of his country remain poor, Déby is a tough survivor. Despite being hated by human rights groups, he is now welcomed by the United States and France for his forthright opposition to Boko Haram. He has used his country’s oil revenue to bolster the military – and hence his own security support.

ISAIAS AFWERKI ERITREA

A former guerrilla leader, Afwerki has headed up Eritrea since independence from Ethiopia in 1993. With official claims that he earns a monthly salary of less than 12,000 dollars, Akwerki’s ruthless regime has repressed any modicum of free press and committed widespread human rights abuses. This has caused thousands of Eritreans, many of them young men, to flee the country and join the migrant exodus to Europe.

YAHYA JAMMEH GAMBIA

In power for 22 years, Jammeh is no believer in democracy, but has promised to crack down on corruption and raise living standards equal to that of the West. Nevertheless, as human rights advocates point out, his campaign against witchcraft resulted in arresting, torture and killing scores of suspects. He is also known for his hatred of homosexuals, threatening to slit their throats.

SASSOU-NGUESSO REPUBLIC OF CONGO

Denis Sassou-Nguesso of the Republic of Congo

In charge since 1977, Sassou-Nguesso, a former soldier, enriched himself and his buddies off his country’s oil wealth. But then, in an apparent pang of remorse, gave up power opening the door to multi-party elections in 1992. This did not last and he regained power in a 1997 coup. Sassou-Nguesso was re-elected in March 2016 in a vote widely considered rigged.

KING MSWATI III SWAZILAND

When he first came to power as a British public school teenager in 1986, many thought that his elitist background would produce an enlightened leader despite 2,000 bare-breasted virgins at his coronation. Instead, this absolute monarch has demonstrated little concern for his people. His polygamy (15 wives) does little to prevent HIV/AIDS (at 27 percent, the world’s highest) and he presides over a poverty-stricken nation (nearly 70 percent live on less than one dollar a day) with one of the lowest life expectancies (33 years).

  1. RE: Marol is the key point of this global true story not cheating and it is the time for waking up . Thank you

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I need public support to involve this case as has been blocked over 10 years without knowing this meaningful true story by natural caused. I believed people involved already but misleading as playing football games for north or south. There is nothing to do with north or south but the God or nature meanings for equality , freedom .. so on. But my case has been blocked for over 10 years globally without telling the truth. People keep messed about and mixed up with family, friends, politics but there is more important issue for climate change and something has to be done with public. You can’t keep ignored these issues as global watching and waiting for so long to let this truth out. I would like to emphasize this caravan of the meaningful symbol of natural brings hope if you know what I mean. No matter how you human beings men made barriers or cancelled the championship (actually I have won twice but whom controlled the prize ?!)to block my global true story for years. This is the caravan of natural with hope after this true story be blocked over 10 years without moving forwards. People are misleading the situation by choosing North or South without knowing this true meaningful story of natural and it is the time to let the truth out. I have more important mission for climate change not wasting time on family or trade or countries fights as this case has been blocked for years without moving forward because they are mixed up and messed about. That is why this caravan has a natural symbol of hope ,freedom, equality ,democratic,.. so on. People are waiting for this case be opened up with meaningful story for long so it is the time to let the true story out by natural. This is the case for public as people keep talking about but blocked the way and it is the time to moving forward. It is the time to find out the result of making gold by natural instead of keeping delayed of making ash by man made disaster. Keeping cancelled, delayed or telling the lies that is not the way of solving the problem. This case is not for a family business but public as well. I don’t know whom they are taking control of this case and it shouldn’t be treated like this for someone taking control underneath for over 10 years without telling the truth. That is a very serious issue for climate change and it is the time for changing. This case and caravan should be in the world heritage list to be protected already but no one cares as if there is nothing to do with them and keep messing about for playing football games or fashions show…. so on without notice of warning of weather forecast but guessing. I have my own global true story to be published as well and just proved something happened by natural and no doubt about it. Where are the funds of my case ?! Also this case and caravan should be protected already but whom are they controlled the funds and games ?! People keep talking about climate changes but nothing changes of my case has been blocked over 10 years without moving forward!? Something serious issues need to be opened with public as soon as possible. I can’t keep waiting for their DO OR DIE , as I have my important mission to do globally not let them mess around. The truth has to be out with this meaningful caravan now. Everyone knows my global true story globally but keep blocked the news and action without any support. Global watching this case long enough to prove my meaningful story by natural. It is the time for changing and upgrade this meaningful story globally.
    I don’t want to get married and who are they taking controlled of the funds for my case ?! This case is for Lord not for family fights and now it is the time to let the truth out. It should be a journey of hope and peace for Lord not mixed up with crime and war by evil. I hope you all understand what my global true story meaning for the copyrights. It has been a long journey to prove my global true story with Lord to fight for human rights, women rights, freedom, fairness, humanity , .. so on. Now it is the time to let the truth out who controlled the case over 10 years without telling the truth?! Where are the funds of my case?! Now it is the time for my successful global true story with Lord of hope and peace. Making wealth by moral not cheating that is this meaningful global story and theory from natural of copyrights. Wake up for the reality not playing games unreal and sleeping walk. There are issues and points as follow:

    1. Who are the inhumanity doctors or film directors they think whom they are for this global crisis of climate changes ?! Using a child is not going to solve the issues of global crisis that is just for waking people up. Up side down that is this meaningful story of God wants to emphasise no unhappy marriage or forced marriage and why women role is very important for this crisis , either good or bad.
    The important message is moral for this meaningful story of making wealth not cheating of the relationship. As you can see this case has been blocked over 10 years with someone under controlled and misleading the situation without telling the truth or mixed up playing the games. I have been travelled a lot so I do know what was going on for people and natural. You human beings tried to create too much fake news of man made to cover up real news of natural that is the point.

    2. From the journey I have been travelled that has proved the powerful God is there from my theory but you human beings tried to preten know nothing about and blocked the way without any support. Why that is man-made disaster of inhumanity way from last 10 years for crisis ?! Keep ignored the issues without caring the natural that is the point.

    3. Any point to make a home without caring the master just like building a church without God that is the point. You human beings making too much outside looking but ignored inside spirit for too long without moral that is the issue for this case. This is not a family business as what I said that is for Lord because I have proved my theory for Lord from my journey.

    4. This case should be out in 2007 in Ireland but has been blocked over 10 years by someone tried to controlled the wealth without moral and I don’t know whom they are. That is why I said it is a crisis for this case and need to be clear my theory for Lord as making wealth by moral not cheating as crimes that is the point. Because it has been a long dark night with someone tried to make wealth by playing games. If there is Lord’s love then why this case has been blocked over 10 years without any support?! So there is no point to talk about love but doesn’t mean it and just for making wealth without moral.
    If support doesn’t mean support then it is a crime. This is the case for evolution and revolution for Lord which is very important for climate change , not someone’s deal or no deal of speculative for messed about over 10 year without dealing anything but blocked the way or ignored the issues.

    5. No point to keep delayed until 2020 because I have proved my journey with Lord of meaningful story and mission globally not wasting time on fighting for the wealth as I have proved my theory with Lord for copyrights. Talking about forever is this book and my global mission not the crimes making wealth without moral and I don’t know whom they are. It is the time for global justice now.

    My global true story with Lord is a long story and journey which It is not a quick and easy what you human beings think of making fast wealth without working or moral. I wish this case can be out for Lord now because it has been a long delayed without support. The wealth is not a family or friends business but for Lord and earth. Thank you

    Yours sincerely

    Jennifer Chung
