Vavoua (Mid-West Cote d’Ivoire), Ouattara’s Militia Shoots at Protesters and Kills Five, M. Frindéthié

The instructions that Ouattara’s minister of interior, Amed Bakayoko, gave his armed militia (FRCI) in the aftermath of the parliamentary elections that confirmed the vigor of President Gbagbo’s support in Cote d’Ivoire are unambiguous: repress by any means necessary any crowd movement likely to inspire the kind of popular uprising witnessed today in the Arab world. So, in compliance with their minister’s instruction, Ouattara’s army of ragtag shot and killed 5 people in Vavoua, mid-west Cote d’Ivoire, bringing the total number of FRCI’s victims to 6 this weekend alone.

Indeed, the decision made by President Gbagbo’s party to boycott the parliamentary elections in Cote d’Ivoire, which took place on December 11, 2011, resulted in a record low turnout (less than 20% of registered voters showed up to vote) and in a manifest disavowal by the Ivorian people of Ouattara’s April 2011 coup d’état rendered possible by the French military’s killing frenzy in Abidjan and their capture of President Gbagbo. Furthermore, the latest evidence of electoral frauds (ballot box stuffing, ballot box thefts, and voter intimidation) by Ouattara’s RDR and the complaints filed  against Ouattara’s party by political parties that had hitherto formed a coalition with the RDR did more than establish the RDR’s propensity for systemic scam. It created a societal malaise that further fanned the anger that President Gbagbo’s illegal deportation to The Hague caused among the Ivorian populations, a potential for a country-wide revolt, especially as some social groups are preparing for a gathering at the Place de la République on January 1, 2012.

So, it is in the prospect of silencing any dissent with the most exemplary punishment that Amed Bakayoko gave his orders to Ouattara’s militia of hoodlums. It is in that same spirit, and acting on their superiors’ instructions, that the FRCI arrested and tortured a young man to death and shot and killed 5 people in a crowd that was protesting the death of that young man. Once again, on this carnage of unarmed civilians, the United Nations and the so-called “international community,” that put Ouattara in power will not be heard posturing and declaiming their sententious pronouncements on human right abuses and crimes against humanity. The scent of the geological resources that Ouattara guarantees them at outrageously low price is too much an inhibitor of moral decency. Once again, the frightened, vulnerable populations of West-Cote d’Ivoire have started an exodus, carrying on their heads their scanty properties. This time, however, we are told, the young men of West-Cote d’Ivoire have vowed to respond appropriately to Ouattara’s killers. They will not remain passive to Ouattara’s militia’s killing drive.
