Equatorial Guinea First Lady Propping Son For Takeover

Published

on

Reports from the capital Malabo indicate there is an extremely unstoppable maneuver by the country’s First lady in her attempt to place her son at the helm of the country.

First lady and businesswoman Constancia Mangue Nsue Okomo has woven her web in politics to the point of holding the reins of a country at the head of which she intends to place her son Teodorín.

A cunning Businesswoman nicknamed “Zé”, the “Panther” holds shares in many construction companies, real estate or extraction of raw materials, she has, over the years, been able to promote her relatives to key positions in the Palace Presidential to Justice via Defense.

Here is a cobweb of influence set up by this First Lady or refered to as the “Primera Dama” in Spanish . This cobweb has one main objective- to catapult the first son Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue to the highest seat of power in this mysterious country.

President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo and First Lady Constancia Mangue Nsue Okomo

The Director of Protocol to the Head of State is the brother of the First Lady. Master of ceremonies of the palace and of talks granted by the president, he lets Constancia Obiang know everything about the head of state’s agenda, over which she actually keeps control.

His daughter, Candy, is the wife of Antonio Oburu Ondo, Managing Director of GePetrol, Equatorial Guinea’s national oil company (previously run by Candido Nsue Okomo, another brother of Constancia Mangue Nsue Okomo).

Victoriano Bibang Nsue Okomo

This is also a brother of the First Lady. Deputy Minister of Defense (a position previously held by a cousin of Constancia Mangue Nsue Okomo, Vicente Eya Olomo), he provides her with a link in the country’s armed forces, in which the Obiang family is a fortiori omnipresent.

General and shadow technocrat, “Efa Mba” as he is known, holds the army with an iron fist on behalf of his nephew, Teodorín.

Juan Olo Mba Nseng

Minister Delegate for Justice, Worship and Penitentiary Institutions, he is the uncle of Constancia Mangue Nsue Okomo. A pillar of the government, he manages on behalf of the president the aspect of ill-gotten gains before the International Court of Justice in The Hague and was also his representative in the standoff between the company Orange and Malabo until 2018. Juan Olo Mba Nseng is one of the directors of Apegesa, an investment company very involved in the management of the Obiang’s fortune.

Jeronimo Osa Osa Ekoro

Secretary General of the Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea (PDGE, in power). In office since 2013, this former Minister of Information is very much involved in the media, a strategic sector.

Familiar with the First Lady, he is also a friend of Teodorín, for whom he holds the reins of the party. He has so far looked out for the interests of the “Panther” and his son, especially when feuds erupted between supporters of the latter and those of Teodorín’s half-brother, Gabriel Mbega Obiang Lima.
