Cabinda: Obama's Challenges in Africa


CABINDA, in the light of the 1885 international protectorate treaty with Portugal and of the OAU’s 1963 list of the African countries, is a sovereign State in international law. Despite Cabinda’s well known legal and political sovereignty, particular Western European imperialist powers made use of all sorts of trickeries to help Angola (MPLA) occupy Cabinda militarily in 1975. This illegal occupation was intended to have full control over Cabinda’s natural wealth and resources, particularly oil, diamonds, gold, uranium, hardwood, etc… Angola’s ruling party (MPLA) has since then become an African mercenary entity in charge of terrorizing and murdering Cabindans as a people and nation on a worldwide scale. Even though the prevailing difference between Cabinda and Angola is of the nature referred to in Article 34 of the Charter of the United Nations, and even though the occupation of Cabinda entails the most serious crimes that fall within the jurisdiction of ICC (International Criminal Court), both the United Nations and the United States turn out to be unable to promote appropriate application and implementation of international law in Cabinda and Africa at large. How come?

In his work Cabinda: Obama’s Challenges in Africa, Bartolomeu Capita is explaining that as long as there is no «Economical Plan» designed to reconcile the dependence of Western Europe’s very existence on African natural resources and the right of African children to live prosperous lives thanks to their respective countries’ natural wealth, no country will help Africa make the type of progress that time demands.
