The International Community has a change heart

Shocking declarations of the international community via the SADC and France following the arrest of ex-president Ravalomanana, or Dada which rubber stamped the Government’s arbitrary decision on the basis of unclear legal grounds is already in the past.

SADC and France condemned Dada’s speech upon his arrival and merely hinted at the possibility of a national reconciliation. Both seemed to have given the Government a green card to what has now become an illegal arrest.

The exception was the USA. They wisely chose to stay silent on the issue of arrest and instead reminded Madagascar to seriously consider a move towards national reconciliation.

Just two days ago, admist confusing reports of whether Dada incited violence through his speech during his arrival and whether he was under surveillance on the basis of security threats or simply locked up; France and the SADC did not condemn the violation of Ravalomanana’s rights. However, after following the development of the events, the SADC urged the Government to respect the rights of Dada and hinted at a potential violations of such rights. Dada is moving closer to becoming a symbolic martyr for his followers: unjustly locked up for the World to see, victim of the decision of a suggestive authoritarian regime.

Dada is held captive

Slowly rising from the status of Dada or father to a martyr, Ravalomanana’s detention situation seemed to have worsened. The ex-president of Madagascar is reported captive in a Bana naval base in Diego Suarez, North of the country. His wife Lalao Ravalomanana called out for help, and shared her concerns with her followers denouncing injustice and mistreatment of her husband. She reports that he is being held in one bedroom, denied time for fresh air or family visits.

This only confirms that he is in fact arbitrarily arrested. Held captive without any legal basis. Hearing the concerned appeal of his wife and family members: are we possibly moving toward mistreatment ? Or is that paranoid thinking?

Rajoanarimampianina is not all to blame

Certainly, the Government needs to do some damage control. The current President Rajaonarimampianina is unknown for such miscalculated moves. He is a skilled and knowledgeable leader, who surely would have assessed and acted within reason. In contrast, his spokesperson and advisors, such as the trained lawyer Rabary Njaka, surely lacks integrity and credibility. A proof of which, was his declaration that: “everyone is entitled to their opinions” in relation to the measures taken. When in fact Ravalomanana’s situation should no longer a subject of debate: he has been arbitrarily arrested, illegally detained and potentially mistreated. Sir Rabary Njaka, please check your legislations.

Finally clearer on the events and in hindsight, the International Community correctly urges Ravalomanana’s rapid and effective release. Will Dada be a free man again, soon enough?

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.

Ironie du sort! un simple ministre des finances et du budget, devenu célèbre à cause de son incompétence à sortir Madagascar de la pauvreté. Un des candidats à la présidentielle, le plus riche et le plus célèbre depuis le début de la campagne électorale malgache, se croit être au dessus de la loi.

Hors de contrôle disent certains, ce n’est qu’un pion disent les autres. Malheureusement, pour Monsieur Rajaonarimampianina, s’enrichir derrière le dos de ses contribuables est nullement apprécié. Comme tous les autres (nouveaux riches), il est atteint d’une folie des grandeurs. Aucune notion en politique si je ne m’abuse, pas d’expérience sur le terrain de l’engagement citoyen, amateur en terme d’amour pour la patrie. Donc, comparé à ses compères! Les Jean Louis Robinson, Hajo Andrianainarivelo, Rolland Ratsiraka et tous les autres qui ont déjà connu le verdict des urnes. Ce dernier est totalement novice en la matière.

Peu importe, les situations auxquelles vous êtes confrontées, on n’a pas le droit de raisonner avec la folie. Peu importe, le montant de votre fortune. J’aimerai et beaucoup de gens, partagent le même avis, que vous vous confrontiez au mal que vous avez établi. Entre autres, le rapport négatif de la banque mondiale, concernant la situation économique du pays, la promotion des maffiosi avec le trafic des bois de roses. Tout récemment, le braquage des deux fourgons blindés de la banque centrale et le problème de la banque BNI etc. Ce qui est sûr, vous n’avez pas le droit de vous en tirer facilement. Mentez nous et le peuple fera éclater la vérité, dupez nous et le peuple vous chassera comme un criminel ordinaire, espionnez nous et le peuple vous espionnera.

Tous contre l’arrivisme de Hery Rajaonarimampianina est le titre de ce post. Ceci, pour vous faire comprendre que l’homme en question. Jusqu’à présent, ne se rend pas encore compte de ses faits et gestes déraisonnables. Submergé par son ego, on voit qu’il est difficile pour sa part, d’accepter la réalité sordide du vécu de ses concitoyens. Pourtant, la meilleure façon pour lui d’admettre qu’il n’est pas à la hauteur pour siéger à la magistrature suprême, est de mettre de côté son arrogance concernant son slogan, « Hery vaovao ho an’ny fanovana » ou « nouvelle force pour le changement ».

Apparemment, Hery n’est pas au courant du phénomène de la réputation qui est très importante et délicate. Voici quelques vocabulaires, conforme a son image d’homme dénué de tout bon sens, qui veut prendre la place du meilleur : »Intelligence à bas étage, petitesse d’esprit, le mal incarné et ainsi de suite ».
