A Letter To My President
I have to be bilingual on this post because I want to be conspicuous. In this picture, you have the current President of the Republic of Chad (he assumed office on the 2nd of December 1990, after a Coup d’état) and next to him, on his left, Mr Koumtog, my father; he was his Deputy Chief Of Staff (one of his Advisors) back in N’DJAMENA, Chad from 1996- to have moved on in 1998 or so.
I do not know who advises him nowadays but this is my message to His Excellence, I am writing as a concerned #Chadian, a law abiding citizen who loves Chadian, Africans, Humans, and cannot stand the socio-economic state we are in; let’s not even assess the other politics but a few:
H.E. Idriss Déby Itno,
It is time for you to realize that the People of #Chad deserve better. I am speaking about the 98% of us, the majority.
From N’djamena to Moundou, from Abéché to Doba, it is clear that the people need more than what is currently offered.
-Infrastructures of our cities can be improved, businesses can be flourishing by fighting blatant corruptive ways.
-Health as well; why not focus on developing ways to cater to our elders and women? To educate more young people to become lawyers, entrepreneurs, engineers, doctors and nurses and dentists, etc for the Pride of our nation.
-And our youth is in dire need of a better educational system and those who can afford to work need more jobs to be created. Why mistreat us like that? We deserve jobs so we can take care of our families.
-The revenues gained from our Land, that oil that is being enjoyed by the USA, Europe and Asia can also be used to improve our daily needs and take care of Hunger and provide potable water to all.
We respect you and want you to remember Omar Bongo (President of #Gabon), or Mouammar Kadhafi (Former President of #Libya), and please do not be like Paul Biya (current President of #Cameroon). Do right by the People and God will bless you even more. My same dad, a year to two before we moved to the USA, was the Assistant Director-General of the Tchad Oil Transportation Company S.A. in Komé. This may be a side note but this subject is highly personal. According to Wikipedia: In October 2006, Chad was placed at the top of the list of the world’s most corrupt nations by Forbes magazine for “what may turn out to be the single most piggish use of philanthropic funds” after proceeds from the Chad–Cameroon Petroleum Development and Pipeline Project supposedly intended to counter famine were used to purchase weapons to keep Déby’s regime in power.
At the end of August 2006, Déby made international news after calling for his country to have a 60 percent stake in its oil output after receiving “crumbs” from foreign companies running the industry.
He said Chevron and Petronas were refusing to pay taxes totaling $486.2 million. Chad passed a World Bank-backed oil revenues law that required most of its oil revenue to be allocated to health,
education and infrastructure projects. The World Bank had previously frozen an oil revenue account in a dispute over how Chad spent its oil profits.
If you need a new Adviser or Counselor, I can be one. Your former employee, my dad thought me well and I will not disappoint.

Une Lettre A Mon Président
J’ai utilisé ma faculté bilingue sur cette photo parce que je veux être clair. Ici, vous avez notre Président actuel (au pouvoir depuis le 2 Décembre 1990, après un Coup d’état)
Ici, notre Président et à sa gauche, Papa Koumtog. Il a été le Chef de cabinet adjoint (l’un de ces Conseillers) au Président.
En tant que citoyen #Tchadien, S.E. Idriss Déby Itno:
Oublions le Français des Français et parlons terre à terre comme on le dit au Tchad. C’est comment? L’argent du pétrole- ces sous là, c’est toi et tes proches seulement et nous les autres-là,
on ne peut pas bouffer avec vous? On nous maltraite, nous la Jeunesse Tchadienne comme si on est des chiens. C’est pas du tout responsable ces pratiques d’abrutis, ce n’est pas du tout SERIEUX.
Beaucoup de choses peuvent être améliorées comme nos infrastructures et la technologie, le commerce et nos relations entre individus. En faisant le bien, le Bon Dieu te benira et nous seront tous en paix avec chacun et pourrons avancer. Car l’Unité et le Travail amèneront ce Progrès.
N’oublies pas le sort du Président Mouammar Kadhafi de la Lybie, on ne vit qu’une seule vie comme Omar Bongo du Gabon. S’il vous plait, ne soyez pas comme Paul Barthélemy Biya’a Bi Mvondo du Cameroun. Selon Wikipédia, ce que tous les Africains sachent, « Il devient président de la République le 6 novembre 1982 après l’annonce radiodiffusée par le président Ahidjo de sa démission le 4 novembre. »
Bon, ça c’est un autre de nos problèmes mais comment pouvons-nous être une nation Démocratique dans ces conditions politiques? Soyons sérieux. Chefs d’Etats Africains, si vous voulez mourir au pouvoir en tant que Présidents, éliminons la notion de LA REPUBLIQUE et changeons en tant que ROYAUMES au lieu de REPUBLIQUES puis que vous voulez demeurer rois de nos pays. Vous changez [quand il vous plait] nos constitutions donc, pourquoi pas le faire et ainsi on comprendra que le multipartisme n’est pas nécessaire?
Si vous avez besoin d’un autre Chef de Cabinet a la Présidentielle, n’hésitez pas de me faire signe. Nous te respectons mais Ce cadeau n’est pas un dû.

Activist, Model, Poet/Writer, Soccer Player and an Entrepreneur at ENTREPRENEUR DE DEMAIN. I have to clarify that my focus from 2006 until 2012 was modeling and the Entertainment business. I never wanted to be an actor although I currently have two Wavers under my belt. I just "need" one more to go from being a Non Union to an Union (SAG) "actor" but {again} that was never my passion- acting! I (nonetheless) have [indeed] done a number of background acting works and gigs. My first work was for NBC and the first show I have ever worked on was 30 Rock. It was unbelievable being on stage with Aleck Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Tina Faye, LL Cool J, Wayne Brady (those last two were featured co-Stars); that was shot on 2/08/2007. I also did some background acting on Cashmere Mafia for ABC as of 9/2007, Ugly Betty from 2008-2010, Kings (2009), Royal Pains and the Good Wife (2010). It was great being an extra also in Films like: THE SMURFS (shot on June 2010) and NEW YEAR'S EVE (2011). As a Poet, I not only want to convey what I feel but {I want to} also express what you, the reader, feel. My inspiration is the loving grace of God (Jesus Christ), my country of birth, the Republic of Chad (Africa) and this World you and I live in. I also find it in Nature (her beauty), my Family and experience. But also in great writers and people like Leopold Sedar Senghor, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X, Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes, e e cummings, Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich) and Jacques Prevert (he is French, I am fluent in French). I also did model as mentioned, I have done a number of fashion shows (Couture Fashion Week in 2009 & 2010, Africa Fashion Week in 2009, etc) when speaking of my younger days. As a soccer player, I played every Sunday in an amateur league in Long Island City and Flushing, Queens. Actually, I went to Kansas City March of 2011 to try out professionally to be part of the Kansas City Sporting (a Major League Soccer) team. I did not make it, unfortunately. My sense of Activism is an everyday matter, from the way I carry myself to writing and promoting this beautiful Art called Poetry. In the future, it will involve concrete actions in developing not only Chad but Africa and promoting the values of Education. I am currently dabbling with the thought of becoming an accomplished lucrative poet (I write a lot!), becoming and a successful Entrepreneur. But yes, I would love to be connected to an understanding PUBLISHING COMPANY that will understand my creative drive and artistic vision so please reach out to me or refer my work if you can. As you read and as you saw, my real Passion is Poetry. I love writing poems. Recently, I have been performing it only because it was another way to reach out to People ( I recently was asked to blog for the 2013 Men's Pageant for Face of Africa. (Here is the first article I wrote "Home-less" was a poem written for a project that was helping people affected by hunger and poverty. It was for the The FWCares Project. My self-published book of poetry, entitled CLASSICS: DIPLOMATS IN EXILE (2007) is my #1 Achievement. I started writing at the age of 18. I am in need of sponsors and/or publishers. This vision God blessed me with is simple: We Will Change The World One Poem At A Time. NON STOP POETRY... It is within ALL of us! Just find it.
