Teodoro Obiang Nguema
« on: April 07, 2019, 08:59:14 PM »
If you have never hear of Teodoro Obiang Nguema, you are not alone. However he is infamous as Africa's longest serving head of state for the Republic of Equatorial Guinea. Even by third world standards, he is an exceptional individual.

First of all the country: Equitorial Guinea is a little rectangular country on the west coast of Africa sitting on the Gulf of Guinea squeezed in between Gabon to the south and Cameroon to the north. The area is about 10,831 square miles which is a little bit larger than Massachusetts.

Since the mid 1990s, Equatorial Guinea has become a major oil producer in sub-Sahara Africa and has the highest Gross Domestic Product in Africa at $32,855 per capita which is several hundred dollars less than Portugal. However, its HDI (Human Development Index) is .591 just below Ghana which has a human development index of .592 and a GDP per capita of $5,013.  So why is the country so underdeveloped if it has such a high per capita income? Simply put, it is corruption. The country ranks 172 out of 180 according to Transparency International in its 2018 report placing it in the top ten of crooked countries.

Not surprisingly, Freedom House ranks the country 7/7 in terms of political and civil rights which is basically at the bottom of the barrel: https://freedomhouse.org/report/freedom-world/2018/equatorial-guinea

Apparently cannibalism is a part of this sicko's Modus Operandi . In 1979 Teodoro Obiang Nguema overthrew his uncle (the previous president) Francisco Macias N'Guema in a bloody coup taking revenge after Francisco had his family murdered. After killing his political opponents, he then eats their testicles and brains to maintain his sexual prowess. He is in his late 70s.

His playboy son is cut from the same cloth. While he served as agricultural minister under his father's rule, he embezzled at least $115 million from the state. https://qz.com/africa/1023038/france-wants-to-jail-the-luxury-loving-playboy-son-of-africas-longest-serving-president/
He was convicted of corruption under French law in 2017: [https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/27/son-of-equatorial-guineas-president-convicted-of-corruption-in-france][/url]

I've read a newspaper article about this country where it was compared to North Korea.
