Gabon president destitute wife files for divorce ... in LA



 


One of president of Gabon's wives has filed for divorce in an LA court and TMZ has the scoop below

The President of Gabon in West Africa has 2 wives with very different lives ... one who lives in the presidential palace and the other who's on welfare. Guess who's unhappy and wants a divorce? President Ali Bongo Ondimba lived in L.A. when his dad was the president. He met a woman named Inge in 1991 and married her 3 years later. They had 3 kids and lived lavishly ... private jets, mansions, cooks, the works. In fact, in 2006, Inge was featured on a VH1 show -- 'Really Rich Real Estate' -- where she bid $25 mil on a Malibu mansion.
But then Ali's dad died and he became President of Gabon, which required him to move back to his homeland. Inge followed him but claims her life was a nightmare. She says witch doctors convinced her husband she was crazy and as a result she was beaten, mutilated and kidnapped.

Inge escaped and came back to L.A. Ali got married to another woman and Inge says he completely cut her off financially. Inge says she hasn't received a dime since 2008.

Fast forward to September 2015 ... Inge, who says she's living on welfare, filed for divorce. In the legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Inge says she and her 16-year-old son are living on $524 a month in public assistance.

She's asking for full custody and spousal support.
There's an obvious dilemma -- California courts are going to have a problem getting jurisdiction over the president of an African country.
But Ali may have a problem, too. He married a much younger woman, Sylvia Valentin, and it looks like polygamy may be an issue.

The governments of Benin and Togo on Monday called for an increase in the amount of electricity, which their countries receive from Nigeria.
They specifically requested the Nigerian electricity supply industry to increase the amount of power sent to them from 200 megawatts to 300MW.
Speaking through the Community Electric du Benin, the countries urged the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission to intervene in the matter, but NERC made it clear to them that they would pay stipulated commercial rates for the power from Nigeria.
The CEB, known in English as the Electricity Community of Benin, is an international organisation co-owned by the governments of Benin and Togo.
It is in charge of developing electricity infrastructure in both countries, which are strongly dependent on energy imports from Ghana and Nigeria.
NERC said in a statement that it told the four-man delegation from the CEB that the governments of Benin and Togo should be ready to pay commercial rates for electricity supplied to them by Nigeria.
Speaking with the CEB team, the Transmission Service Provider and Independent System Operator for the Republics of Togo and Benin, the NERC Chairman, Dr. Sam Amadi, was quoted as saying, “The ongoing reform in the Nigeria electricity industry will not jeopardise international relations and strategic interests of Nigeria.”
The delegation, the statement said, was in Nigeria to find out the implication of the privatisation of the remaining government-owned power plants under the National Integrated Power Project and how it would affect the allocation of 200MW of electricity, which the two nations were receiving from Nigeria.
NERC stated in the statement, “They also made a case for an increase in allocation from 200MW to 300MW. Nigeria currently supplies 300MW to Togo, Benin and Niger Republic, out of which the CEB countries get 200MW of power supply with the balance of 100MW given to Niger Republic.”
“You need to sign a power purchase agreement with the Nigeria Electricity Bulk Trader Plc and be up to date in your payment for electricity received as the market will be entirely private-sector-driven by the time the NIPP plants are sold,” Amadi was quoted as telling the delegation.
He explained that such financial commitment and responsibility might be an issue when considering their request for additional capacity.
The CEB team was told that the request would be deliberated at the October edition of the industry stakeholders’ meeting and that decisions reached would be communicated to them.
