The French-speaking African country of Gabon is moving on from the language of its former colonisers and introducing English across the nation.

Gabon's President Ali Bongo Odimba spent last week in Rwanda, where a similar move has proved a success.

Rwanda is now part of both the Francophonie (French-speaking) community and the Commonwealth.

President Bongo Odimba has made his move just ahead of the 14th summit of the Francophonie, which will see 56 countries' representatives descend on the Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon's next-door neighbour.

Soon, Obama will have to hire 100,000 new French language teachers - as France is leadingi the way down the socialist spiral into oblivion. NO wait...he hated that 'colonization'......or should I say, his father did, and Obama adopted his fathers left wing Marxist dreams according to his own book which Bill Ayers wrote.**


when French speaking countries give French the boot, and put in English, you know that the end is near for the French language outside of France.....the dominoes will fall one by one.

My niece was in the Peace Corps in Togo..Africa..a french speaking country. wonder for how much longer?
