When friends come calling

Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, one of Africa’s nastiest and most corrupt dictators (and that's saying something ...), has just concluded a brief visit to Cuba, where he has been given a red carpet welcome by Raul Castro.

Mr Obiang has been the president of the former Spanish colony of Equatorial Guinea since 1979 when he deposed his equally corrupt and equally blood-thirsty uncle.

Known to his subjects as El Jefe, he is said to be “in permanent contact with the Almighty”, which is very handy since it apparently allows Mr Obiang to “kill anyone without going to Hell”.

His visit to Havana – to “strengthen the ties of friendship and cooperation with Cuba” – is part of a Latin American tour that also takes in Brazil and Argentina.

Luis,
Obiang said in Havana "he felt just like he was at home in his own house"
and he was right, since they practice excatly his line of govt. conduct, such as possition in jail or shot, one party, no freedom of the press, and total control over everybody. No wonder he felt at home and rightly so.
God creates them and the Devil brings them together.
