Increasingly isolated internationally, Ivory Coast leader Laurent Gbagbo counts on the support of his influential, Bible-wielding wife Simone to rally followers at home.

It is a shame that evoke God in their selfish endeavours. But who is clean? Who supported Gbagbo all these years? Is it not the French whose occupation of Cote D'Ivoire is an eyesore? From running the airport, maintaining a huge military base .. surely, the people of CDI should now be allowed to determine their destiny. Suuport and not sabotage is welcome.
The people of Ivory coast are dying. The Au and Ecowas is still watching. The problem in Ivory Coast is far beyound diplomacy or dialogue. Time is running out.The AU and Ecowas must act now,to avoid another genocide like we all saw in RWANDA.If we want to see true Democracy in Africa, this is the time right time to act. Using legitimate force to oust Gbargo and gangs is the only option for restoring the will of the people of that Country.
Act now or be prepared to regret that you failed to saved another genocide.
The Economy Community of West African States(ECOWAS), have to be fast in making their decisions and be harsh on the removal of Mr. Laurant Gbarbo because if they fail to remove him, than ECOWAS have to get it at the back of their mine that other countries forming part of ECOWAS shall be next to violate their command or rules and regulations.
WHY IS FRANCE HESITANT TO LOOK INTO THE COMPLAIN OF GBAGBO AND INSTEAD IS DECLARING WAR UNTO IVORY COAST OR GBAGBO
TO WHOM HAS GBAGBO DECLARED WAR? HE CERTAINLY CANNOT DECLARE WAR ON HIS PEOPLE. ALHASSAN IS ASKING FOR WAR BECAUSE HE KNOWS HE IS NOT IVORIAN SO THEY CAN DIE ALL HE NEEDS IS SATISFY HIS MASTERS FRANCE.
I THINK ECOWAS SHOULD TAKE A SECOND LOOK AT THOSE VOTES IN THE NORTH AND HAVE A RECOUNT OR THIRD ELECTION IN THAT REGION TO STETTLE THIS ONECE AND FOR ALL.
GBAGBO IS OPEN FOR NEGOTIATION WHY IS ALHASSAN REFUSING?
BY THE WAY, I THINK GBAGBO SHOULD INTRODUCE THE IVORIAN CURRENCY
THE TIME IS NOW SO YOU CAN BE FREE FROM THIS FRENCH CONTROL FOR ONCE AND START THE BALL ROLLING FOR OTHER FRANCE AFRIQUE TO HAVE THEIR MONEY. 50YRS IS ENOUGH FOR THEM TO WAKE UP
WHO SAYS THIS ELECTION IS NOT A BLESSING IN DISGUISE THE LORD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS
everything must be settled otherwise it is the people that will suffer. their people are already suffering and if chaos and disorder in the government will continue everybody will be at a lose. whoever is the winner must be crowned but the loser must give up. power on earth is temporary there is still power in heaven awaiting for everyone.
Well, who made Him greedy? The French. This is a big problem with Francophone African Countries. France is the sole cause of all the probs here. Let them stay and we will solve our problems.Period. They are just as bad as the word.
God help us.
i think it will be better for the two leaders to form a collusition goverment same to what we have in my country(kenya),this will bring down the tension and the country will move forward.
Simone should be ashamed of herself for allowing herself to be greedy for money and power.she is supposed to know that her husbands time is up therefore she should stop her unecessary rally and sit her ass down.In her speech,she said God is leading thier fight;maybe she has forgotten that God can only lead a genuine fight and if she is really a christian like she claims, then she should know that her own fight is not genuine especcially with the recent killings of thousands of ivorians due to her fight.I just want to advise her either drop the bible and continue her fight or hold her bible ahd stop the fighyt like a christian.
This Gbagbo thing is becoming a nuisance. The ECOWAS resolved military intervention in December 2010 and i am surprised as to why the delay in action, leaders like Gbagbo are spreading like wildfire so they have to be taught lessons like what was done to Saddaam Hussein. Look what happened in Tunisia... that's a lesson too which Dictators must understand. We have 247 innocent dead Ivorians seeking a true and genuine leader and yet the rest of Africa and the world wait and watch one man and his wife alive and talking nonsense. Action please true leaders!!!!
Simone needs to tell the French people the where about of the French Journalist who died in Abidjan instead of taking the BIBLE in her hands to make a case. She is delusional about power. She needs to know that her husband lost the election. The Ivorian peoples' money she and her husband are taking to pay for lawyers who are comming to drain this poor country resources should stop.
The people of Ivory coast have spoken. They have elected Ouattara as their leader and so Gbagbo should not use their fear of confrontation to remain in power.
France is colonial power to Ivory Coast and should step up to stop the killing of innocent people from the hand of this insane,power greed dictator who has no respect for reality. This is the only election in Africa that took enormous sum of money only because of his inappropiate demand while his people continue to suffer. France needs to save the people of this land.
This is the first truth about Ivory coast on this media.
