During the course of my day, I read news from more African countries than I can count. During the end of the week, anyone that I've missed I go back and read from those countries I've missed.

Reading and writing so much has caused several physical and mental issues. I have seen more real dead bodies doing this, than I've ever seen in my life. Its something different seeing death in photos and videos that aren't fake from horror films. These are much different, possibly because these are real human beings, that were once alive.

Reading news mostly from Mali and Burkina Faso, one can't help but find that there are several French (As in France not French West or Central African French) outlets that pride themselves on trying to troll the leadership of Burkina Faso, Mali and also Niger.

These 3 African countries are under military leadership, however they aren't the only ones in Africa. For several obvious reasons, Gabon's Brice Oligu gets a pass as well as Mamady Doumbouya of Guniea Conakry.

The Gabonese coup leader Brice Oligu, asked for France's permission to remove Bongo, who many say is his cousin. The long standing family that has been in power for 53-years, in Gabon, has just changed hands.

So far Brice Oligu, continues to go on photo shoots around the world, he's yet to make much change in the way the government deals with France.

As far as things look, its business as usual. as Brice takes his moves from Burkina Faso's leader Captain Ibrahim Traoré. He has already said he won't take a salary, which early on Captain Ibrahim Traoré had done from the start of his leadership.

This isn't the first post from LSI Africa, that was posted as an attempt to troll the leadership of one of the 3 West African countries, Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso. There is even a fake account, the Elon Musk's Twitter X has refused to delete, its an account the belongs to a French reporter.

However one day another account pointed out that though the photo was that of the reporter, there was a missing link to his website, the photo was also one that wasn't being used by the journalist.

I haven't seen a post from the so-called rouge account lately, I also don't spend much time on the useless platform either.

This Tweet (X what are we supposed to call them now, anyway?) any who, this post claims that Captain Traoré has placed his friends and family in positions within the Burkina Faso government.

The way elected officials have done throughout history all over the world. Here is a translation of the Tweet below;

LSI AFRICA @lsiafrica

🚨#BurkinaFaso: Captain Ibrahim Traoré installed his loved ones at the highest summit of the state.

-His uncle Kassoum Coulibaly is Minister of Defense.

- His cousin Rachid Coulibaly is DGA/Protocol

- His brother Inoussa Traoré is Special Advisor.

- His brother Kassoum Traoré, without an official position but takes care of communication and social networks.

- His sister-in-law Anne Marie Josèphe TRAORÉ/ILBOUDO, is responsible for financial management at the ALT.

- His cousin Karim Traoré, appointed, in March 2023, director general of the Agency for the Promotion of Community Entrepreneurship (APEC). The rest 👇

Note; this claim that Traoré has installed his family has no proof, the link above they've provided they don't even have photos for those that they claim are his own brothers and sister-in-law. There is no source of their proof just names, also the family name 'Traoré' is very common in Burkina Faso.

Traoré could've placed no one in positions of power, it could be a fully military lead government. Instead it's human beings. His family isn't one of the filthy rich ruling families like that of the Gabon legacy.

If Trump can place his moronic children and his filthy rich slimy friends to positions in-which most weren't qualified to hold on their best days.

The replies were hilarious, people said several things from, "He can move the office of the Presidency to his village for all we care!"

Another Twitter X user said; "he can even employ the his entire village for all most of us care, anything is better than having France in our country!"

Common African House and Street Dog

Another poster said; "He can even appoint the family's dog to a position, as a matter of fact Traoré family dog for the next president of France!"

Most of the citizens of West African francophone countries are tired of France, however some countries have refused to distance themselves from their former colonial masters. Some countries are Chad, Guinée Conakry, Cameroun, Senegal and Gabon.

Needless to say most of the people of Burkina Faso are proud of all that Traoré has done for the country so far. They're in a much better position than they were under their prior partially elected President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré.

Some people have said that Thomas Sankara would be disappointed, however he was assonated because he had someone by his side that he trusted, like a brother but his real blood brother wouldn't have killed him. Sincerely doubt Ibrahim's real brother will be taking him out any time soon.

There have been other times that "so-called" French journalists have taken to Twitter to insult the leadership of Ibrahim Traoré and Assimi Goïta of Mali. There were several posts insulting the fact that both these military soldiers actually wear uniforms. It lasted about 2 weeks, the tweets of the photos of the 2 men that had their first meeting.

Assimi Goïta, has since been seen wearing civilian clothing, however Captain Traoré has yet to be photographed in anything but his uniform, no matter who he's meeting with.

These journalists, simply show their immaturity, an entire 'first world country' trolly a country of 22.1 million people, (Burkina), 21.9 million (Mali) and 28.8 million of Niger.

Out of these almost 73 million humans more than 55% of these are women and children, probably higher because these 3 countries have an extremely high population of children. As the woman are the most fertile in the world.

Its time that France, the citizens and journalists of France simply leave Africans alone, they're only creating an environment of hatred and spreading the sentiment of mistrust. Sadly France is already pushing this anti-Islamic stance, which all 3 of these particular West African countries have a high Muslim practicing population.
