On the website of the Russian Radio ‘La Voix de la Russie/Rossiya Segodnya' are mentioned on May 19 the theses of Luc MICHEL on Equatorial Guinea as a new center of Pan-Africanism…
# Mikhail Gamandiy-Egorov / La Voix de la Russie:
"EQUATORIAL GUINEA: THE GOOD EXAMPLE FOR AFRICA?"
Excerpts: "Luc Michel, a specialist in geopolitics and in particular knowing very well Libya, said that Equatorial Guinea is now actually a new development model for Africa. In addition, he believes in the country's capacity to carry the torch of Pan-Africanism, after the fall of the Libyan Jamahiriya."
"What makes Equatorial Guinea so different? Probably a pan-African approach, a daunting defense of its independence and sovereignty, as opposed to many of its neighbors. Would this not be also the reason why the head of state, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, is fervently and constantly criticized by political as media Western elites? The country's president is indeed a Pan-Africanist and he did not hide it. He was also a close friend of the Libyan leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, who was murdered in October 2011 by NATO and openly condemned with a few other African leaders (including Jacob Zuma, South African president) this barbaric act of the imperialist and neocolonial Western interventionism. He stated: "We regret the death of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. Taking over his pan-African struggle is difficult. "In any case and indeed, Equatorial Guinea now intends to take up the torch of the Pan African struggle, despite all the challenges it raises."
