Equatorial Guinea and the CPLP

Equatorial Guinea is set to join the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP). The recent outburst of critics towards one of the most authoritarian countries in Africa entering the community is replete of hypocrisy. Why?

Well, isn’t it better to include the country in an organization that has as one of its main tenets the promotion of human rights and democracy?

Wouldn’t it promote positive change in the country, specially when considering that TeodoroObiang – 72 – is quite possibly nearing the end of his

rule?

It is my personal opinion that a political transition would benefit from the values and ideals behind the CPLP! Portugal can play a vital role and assert itself as a human rights and democracy promoter in sub-Saharan Africa.

Human rights proponents should look further into the future!
