Illogical But True ||14 African Countries Forced to Pay Colonial Tax For the Benefits of Slavery and Colonization


e1cfa3395691113e203880f473210c1bDid you know many African countries continue to pay colonial tax
to France since their independence till today!

Let me share with you first the facts:

At this very moment I’m writing this article, 14 african countries are obliged by France, trough a colonial Untitledpact, to put 85% of their foreign reserve into France central bank under French minister of Finance control. Until now, 2014, Togo and about 13 other african countries still have to pay colonial debt to France. African leaders who refuse are killed or victim of coup. Those who obey are supported and rewarded by France with lavish lifestyle while their people endure extreme poverty, and desperation.

It’s such an evil system even denounced by the European Union, but France is not ready to move from that colonial system which puts about 500 billions dollars from Africa to its treasury year in year out.

We often accuse African leaders of corruption and serving western nations interests instead, but there is a clear explanation for that behavior. They behave so because they are afraid the be killed or victim of a coup. They want a powerful nation to back them in case of aggression or trouble. But, contrary to a friendly nation protection, the western protection is often offered in exchange of these leaders renouncing to serve their own people or nations’ interests. African leaders would work in the interest of their people if they were not constantly stalked and bullied by colonial countries.

In fact, during the last 50 years, a total of 67 coups happened in 26 countries in Africa, 16 of those countries are french ex-colonies, which means 61% of the coups happened in Francophone Africa. 

Some Thoughts

Brothers can’t catch a break!!!

I grew up hearing in the 80’s that Africans were fucked up people,in those same exact words. “They complain about freedom and all that but they massacre their own people. In other words : giving a depraved people freedom only exposed how much of animals they are. Africa is interesting. The media shows us only the most horrible pictures of Africa, neglecting to tell us about the role that Western Countries have it keeping it the way it is. Check this out, I will have more to say later:

#1.  Colonial Debt for the benefits of France colonization

The newly “independent” countries  should pay for the infrastructure built by France in the country during colonization.

#2. Automatic confiscation of national reserves

The African countries should deposit their national monetary reserves into France Central bank. France has been holding the national reserves of fourteen African countries since 1961. The African countries don’t have access to that money. France allows them to access only 15% of the money in any given year. If they need more than that, they have to borrow the extra money from their own 65% from the French Treasury at commercial rates.

#3.  Right of first refusal on any raw or natural resource discovered in the country

France has the first right to buy any natural resources found in the land of its ex-colonies. It’s only after France would say, “I’m not interested”, that the African countries are allowed to seek other partners.

#4. Priority to French interests and companies in public procurement and public biding

In the award of government contracts, French companies must be considered first, and only after that these countries  could look elsewhere.

#5. Exclusive right to supply military equipment and Train the country military officers

Through a sophisticated scheme of scholarships, grants, and “Defense Agreements” attached to the Colonial Pact, the africans should send their senior military officers for training in France or French ran-training facilities.

#6. Right for France to pre-deploy troops and  intervene military in the country to defend its interests

Under something called “Defence Agreements” attached to the Colonial Pact, France had the legal right to intervene militarily in the African countries, and also to station troops permanently in bases and military facilities in those countries, run entirely by the French.

#7. Obligation to make French the official language of the country and the language for education

Oui, Monsieur. Vous devez parlez français, la langue de Molière!

A French language and culture dissemination organization has been created called “Francophonie” with several satellites and affiliates organizations supervised by the French Minister of Foreign Affairs.

#8. Obligation to use France colonial money FCFA

That’s the real milk cow for France, but it’s such an evil system even denounced by the European Union, but France is not ready to move from that colonial system which puts about 500 billions dollars from Africa to its treasury.

#9.  Obligation to send France annual balance and reserve report.

Without the report, no money. 

#10. Renonciation to enter into military alliance with any other country unless authorized by France

African countries in general are the ones with will less regional military alliances. Most of the countries have only military alliances with their ex-colonisers! (funny, but you can’t do better!). 

#11. Obligation to ally with France in situation of war or global crisis

Over one million africans soldiers fought for the defeat of nazism and fascism during the second world war. Their contribution is often ignored or minimized, but when you think that it took only 6 weeks for Germany to defeat France in 1940, France knows that Africans could be useful for fighting for la “Grandeur de la France” in the future.

  1. I always have said, Western countries went over there, fucked it up, created a dependence in this very different culture on western institutions, and then once it was completely raped beyond recognition, the west goes back like Superman to save the day. End the end the west comes out, according to their own media, looking like saints. Of course. I’m not necessarily saying in all cases that Africans are innocent people trampled by evil westerners, I’m just saying that the situation needs to be perceived differently. Thanks for posting!
