Congo-Brazzaville: Corruption Wall of Shame

Les Nouveaux Riches Congolais (Fr), part critique, part satire, uses its blog as a wall of shame for those in Congo-Brazzaville who have allegedly gotten rich through unscrupulous or illegal means. The site also includes a creative reinterpration of key articles of the constitution: “ARTICLE 47: Public goods are sacred and inalienable. All citizens, except for me, my wife, my sons, daughter, nieces and nephews, brothers, sisters, cousins, distant relatives, apparatchicks of the PCT and other obscure servants on a list that will be established through a presidential decree, must respect them.”
