MarcRavalomanana

Former president Marc Ravalomanana finally stepped on the Malagasy territory, his homeland on sunday 12th october in the night. A land where his followers call him: Dada, or father. Where he was once democratically elected as Chief of State then thrown out of power by a controversial coup d’état in 2009. A transition government was put in place reigning over the not so glorious years of political instability. This time around, Dada successfully entered the Malagasy territory without the typically mediatised declaration of his arrival. Surprising many of his followers – Dada is back !

Back to bickering 
Dada’s arrival was followed by predictable controversies. The current President Rajaonarimampianina announced that he has been arrested, emphasis added, to ensure his safety. Dada has actually been placed “in a supervised area” to ensure his safety. Clearly he has been invisibly hand cuffed and imprisoned by the authorities in a naval base in the North of the island in Diego Suarez. None of the Government officials hierarchically competent to decide on such matter was present at the conseil de gouvernement that was to decide on Dada’s fate. General Dominique Rakotozafy, minister of Défence, Didier Gérard Paza, secretary to the gendarmerie nationale, as well as the minister of “public security” who would be the principal decision maker on such issues were not involved the meeting. Once again, the lack of transparency on defining events in Madagascar’s political future is not surprising.

Dada « the martyr? » 
Where should we start? A shady house arrest, that was not decided by a tribunal, without a warrant, I presume, thus devoid of any legal basis. It was in fact a decision taken by the conseil de gouvernement, thus by the executive branch. Should we call it a “kidnapping” or an “arbitrary arrest”? Thus in violation of the rights of a former Chief of State, a legislation upheld in Madagascar as well as articles 5 and 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which was ratified and implemented by the Malagasy Government.

If Ravalomanana, was a danger to another person, to the population, to national security, similar measure emanating from the legislative branch could potentially apply. However, as President Rajaonarimampianina declared, he had been locked away in Diego on the basis of security threats. In the legislation on the rights of former Chief of State, it is possible to assign military type of surveillance if such threat is suspect and there are reasonable grounds that Dada was indeed in danger. Needless to say, it is only a matter of the most simple research to conclude that Dada under house arrest was an arbitrary decision.

The government of Rajaonarimampianina should calculate his actions carefully since such blatant abuse of Dada’s right is unacceptable even when rubber stamped by the SADC and FRANCE, who in fact congratulated him on obvious violations.

Shocked …. the Malagasy were left on 25 January following the inaugurals.

The new president Hery Rajaonarimapianina was welcomed by a scandal. One that claimed the life of an innocent two years old and injured 37 other from a grenade explosion at a bus stop. It was reportedly initiated by a white man in a 4×4 or on foot. The facts are unclear. It happened 200 yards from the swearing in ceremony. Immediately following the blast it was still too early and too sensitive to jump into conclusion. However, with a few days to gain some perspective it is time to question, set the facts straight and investigate.

The innocent victims were rushed to the emergency.
Flowers were left in remembrance. Buzzes were launched in social media such as facebook and twitter. Eager to find out more, we have been closely monitoring the media. Surprisingly the news did not make the headlines the next day. Information are trickling down but nothing sufficiently clear to draw any conclusion. Needless to say such crime cannot be left unpunished. As it stand a serious investigation should be carried out. In fact it is an opportunity for the new government to demonstrate its commitment to end impunity. The media is already using powerful terms such as « Terrorism. » Isn’t that too extreme without clear investigation? Terrorism is defined as « the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes. » Thus a political element must be proven. If it is politically related, one can only wonder what the verdict would be.

The press reported a 4×4 driven by military personnel visiting Antanimora, the capital’s prison, to free theirs friends. When asked whether they had a decision issued by the tribunal that would allow their action, they were unable to produce one. The situation was so confusing that following an emergency meeting chaired by the leaders in the military a number of military personnel and civilians were thrown back into prison. They were freed again later during the week. Apparently they negotiated between themselves so as to avoid any escalation of violence. Between the uncertainty of the investigation, the shock of the loss of a two year old’s life, the too many victims fighting for survival, the tragedy and the story continues to unfold with pieces of information in the media.

Whether politically motivated or other these victims deserve more than just flowers. The population need to be reassured that their newly elected President is truly committed to ending impunity for such crimes. Ceasing political episode which was led by savages abusing power and authority. Time ! It is time for real change. Where art thou Mr President ? Rendering justice to innocents is your first test.

Si aux États Unis, les Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, l’association des black Panthers luttaient contre la traite des nègres. En Afrique du Sud, Nelson Mandela était célèbre pour son combat contre l’apartheid. Du côté de l’Asie, les Dalaï Lama, Gandhi et compères ont donné une image digne de notre respect, concernant leur résistance contre toute forme d’injustice sociale et de pauvreté. Afin de, rétablir ce que l’on appelle « droit de l’homme ».

Par contre, à Madagascar, un certain Patrick Leloup, qui n’est autre que l’un des proches collaborateurs de Andry Rajoelina (l’homme qui a imposé le culte du mal aux Malagasy). Célèbre, depuis un certain temps, à cause de son complexe de croisement de races différentes, n’est autre que ce type qui a osé sortir des propos injurieux envers ses compatriotes.

En ce troisième millénaire, traiter de Babakoto (singe primate) ses concitoyens est une atteinte à l’intégrité morale de tous les Malagasy. Sinon, dire que les militaires, derniers remparts de la république sont des « Akoho gasy affamés » est exactement le terme approprié contre ces derniers, pour cause de lâchetés. Par contre, menacer toutes personnes ouvertement et publiquement à cause de son fanatisme pour le Disc Jockey, est une aberration pour une tentative de meurtre. Et je cite:  » […] Je vous tuerais un par un, si jamais vous faites chier à Andry Rajoelina […]  »

Si la légende de Tarzan est connue pour son évolution, dans le monde contemporain. Chita, le singe de ce dernier, quand à lui, gardait toujours ce côté primaire incompréhensible. Ceci, pour vous faire remarquer que Leloup dans l’état actuel des choses, est notre Chita.

Le journaliste citoyen qui a partagé ce message fort de la part de Leloup, mérite toutes nos reconnaissances et gratitudes. Car, Ce dernier a été dupé jusqu’au plus plus profond de son cerveau.
