Madagascar: Former Malagasy President, Marc Ravalomanana, reprimands the power in place

The former Malagasy President, Marc Ravalomanana, ousted from power in March 2009 and exile in South Africa who has admitted last February the victory of the new President, Hery Rajaonarimampianina, has vigorously denounced this weekend by telephone in front of his partisans gathered in Magro at Behoririka, “hypocrisy and incompetence” of the power in place, as reported the Midi Madagasikara newspaper.
“Seven months have passed, the country is plunged in financial black hole, unlike what we had hoped… during these seven months, there were only hypocrisy… the realities are far from meeting the expectations and aspirations of the Malagasy people. According to the ONU, Madagascar is at the 155th world rank. Only countries decimated by wars like Palestine are behind us. In Madagascar, there is no war. It is the incompetence of the leaders which is at the origin of this shameful situation.” Lambasted the former Malagasy president, Marc Ravalomanana, who recalled of having supported “without condition the regime in place despite the fact that there is only one represent of the Ravalomanana movement within the government”.
 “…During the electoral campaign, the actual leaders have advocated as priority the return of political exiles and the reconciliation. What about it now? The president of the Republic, the prime minister and the ministers have declared that their priority, are the 22 millions of Madagascans and not one person. Is this really the case today?...” has also added Marc Ravalomanana.
 “Concretise what has been decided. If you are really a man of word, take your responsibilities. I have a right to have my passport while you opposes for fear of my come back. Today, I declare to whoever wants to hear that I will have my passport”, mourned the former Malagasy president Marc Ravalomanana.
As a reminder, Marc Ravaloamanana currently deprived of passport to return to Madagascar had precised last month of wanting to “return in peace” on his native land, as a simple ordinary citizen to bring his humble brick to the reconstruction building of Madagascar which according to him lives a difficult situation, even “desperate”.
