MacDaniel Mark: Gabon coup – Femi Fani-Kayode’s statement, a diversionary tactic.
I find the statement by Femi Fani-Kayode about the coup detat in Gabon highly diversionary. He was deliberately and desperately trying to divert attention from his sins and those of his gang members at home. He spoke out of the fear of nemesis, but unfortunately for him, kama cannot be manipulated.
For the records, the coup in Gabon wasn’t against France as he would like to have it painted, but against corrupt and avaricious politicians that seek political power at all costs just to plunder their nations and impoverish the citizenry.
The coup was against political thieves and mandate robbers like him who have brazenly desecrated the sacred altar of democracy across Africa in the name of their self-seeking ambition. It was against political charlatans, election riggers and economic saboteurs who have for long constituted the greatest bane to political stability and economic development in the continent of Africa.
It was against a committee of political vultures like him who have for decades, been feeding fat on the bodies of the citizens they have slain through poverty, hunger and starvation. It was against a group of soulless and ruthless political knaves like him who rode their way to power on the wings of stolen mandate.
Who is Femi Fani-Kayode to talk about the unfolding events in Gabon while he and his henchmen back here in Nigeria represent the very repressive, corrupt, immoral and evil political gang that rigged their ways into power in the recently concluded presidential election? It was against his ilk that the coup detat in Gabon took place and not against France as he would like to have people believe. It was against shameless political thugs like him. One wonders what would have become of him by now if he were in Gabon.
The force of truth, once ignited by the right time and season is unstoppable, and it will continue to move with atomic impact until it totally reverses every seeming victory of falsehood. Fani-Kayode and his ilk should hide their faces in shame if they have any vestige of decency left in their egregiously battered reputation.

In the early hours of Wednesday August 30, 2023, the former Nigerian Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode said he is not surprised by the military coup in Gabon, and that people should expect more coups in Francophone countries of West and Central Africa.
Fani-Kayode made the comments in a post on his social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.
He said the coup in Gabon was “prophetic” and that it was “frankly” to be expected.
Fani-Kayode cited his recent essay “Does Killing Nigerien Babies Bring Glory To Our Name?” in which he warned that “coups are becoming more and more common in Francophone Africa.” He said that the reasons for this are “corruption, poverty, and a lack of democracy.”
Fani-Kayode also questioned whether the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) or the African Union would threaten to invade Gabon, as they have done in the past with other countries that have experienced coups.
He wrote, “Sadly another coup has taken place in Africa. This time it is in the nation of Gabon where President Ali Bongo (pictured below) has been removed from power.
“It appears that the warning I gave in my last essay, titled ‘Does Killing Nigerien Babies Bring Glory To Our Name?’, was prophetic.
“I am not surprised that this has happened and frankly we should expect more coups in the Francophone countries of West and Central Africa for the reasons I stated in that essay.
“I wonder whether ECOWAS or the African Union will threaten to invade Gabon too?”
The coup in Gabon took place on Wednesday, August 30, 2023. Top army officers announced that they had seized power after the re-election of President Ali Bongo. The officers said they were annulling the outcome of the election, which the opposition had rejected and described as “fraudulent.”
The coup is the latest in a series of military takeovers in Francophone Africa.
With events in Gabon today it is fair to say that the hegemony of the French in Africa is almost over.
They have been challenged, humiliated, ridiculed, diminished, demystified and rubbished by most of their erstwhile African colonies and the hatred, contempt, opprobium and disdain that they attract from the overwhelming majority of Africans is mind-boggling and unprecedented.
If they don’t submit to the will of the African people, put their little French tails between their legs, bow down to the local population and beat a hasty and dignified retreat back to France with at least a measure of their dignity still intact they will be thrown out by the force of arms just as they were in Viet Nam and Algeria.
The cry on the African continent today is liberty and freedom from the tyrannical bondage and venemous yoke of the French and deliverance from their perverted, pervasive and corrosive ways and systemic oppression.
Simply put, Francophone Africans are no longer interested in being slaves or in being ruled by a series of vicious, corrupt, perfidious and barbaric puppet leaders, pseudo monarchs and life-time dictators who have sold their bodies, spirits and souls to the devil and their French masters. Kudos to them!
COMMENTS: I am almost certain, Markdaniel Mark is a pseudo name, however, if not, or whoever it is, FFK has said nothing but the truth about the potential of more coups in Africa if there are sit tight rulers, poverty, disease, neo-colonialism, etc.
