Top 10 African Presidents With The Most Expensive & Classy Private Jets by Nobody: 12:02pm On May 10, 2015


Flying is one of the most important means of
transportation, and it is only important that
every President of any African country or
anywhere else in the world has access to a
very convenient flying machine that offers
luxury, security and boasts of world cla$$
communication equipments and other things.
On top of moving faster and wasting less time,
it’s easier to get work done in the air when
you’re alone. Even in first or business cla$$,
Ca$$ pointed out, it’s risky to have
confidential conversations, because you don’t
know who may be around.

So the next time you wonder why companies
spend tens of millions to buy their own jets
instead of putting employees on commercial
fights, know that it’s not about creature
comforts. It’s about saving time and money.
Wink wink. Ha ha
This mild sunny evening we’re going to talk
about the top 10 best presidential planes in
Africa. Prepare for an interesting virtual journey
inside and outside each one of the following
magnificent aircrafts owned by African leaders.



10. Angola President’s Plane (Embraer
ERJ-135)


After the Embraer EMB-120 Brasilia crash in
2011, Angola’s president now flies in a more
superior Embraer ERJ-135. The ERJ-135
COSTS ABOUT $16 million which is obviously a
far cry from Nigeria presidents Boeing 737.
What makes this plane superior however is its
engine – 2 X Rolls_Royce which has a power
of 7400 lbf. The plane has a maximum cruising
speed of 834 km/h. The Embraer breed of
airplanes is manufactured and a$$embled in
Brazil.



9.South Africa Presidential Plane (C130)

Another non-surprise member of the top 10 list
of magnificent African Presidential planes is
Jacob Zuma’s C130 superspeed plane.
President Zuma’s plane offers superior
performance with a wide range of flexibility for
every theater of operations and requirements
of the decorated leader.
Although the plane is specifically meant for
flying in harsh environments, South African
authorities love it because as they say “It
keeps the president ready for next mission and
for whatever future holds”. There is however
rumor that the president could be on his way
to getting a superiorBoeing 777 luxurious
private jet – at the South African taxpayers’
expense of course.



8.Kenya President’s Jet (Fokker 70)

Uhuru Kenyatta, the relatively young, charming
African leader doesn’t fly economy cla$$ like
most of us do. He flies in a customized Fokker
70 that has room for only 25 pa$$engers.
According to reliable sources, President
Kenyatta’s official plane was acquired back in
1995 just two years after manufacture. Almost
20 years down the line, the fuel efficient plane
is still going strong. The plane boasts a
cruising speed of up to 845 km/h and costs an
estimated $20 million.



7.Ghana President’s Official Plane (Falcon
900 Ex Easy)


Talk of luxury and speed all packaged together
and President John Mill’s plane comes to the
foresight.
The three engine supersonic jet enjoys an
extended range of 9000 kilometers which
simply means that it can stay airborne for up
to 13 hours. According to a Ghanaian
newspaper, the Falcon 900 cost $37 million.



6.Egypt Presidential Plane (Air Bus A340)

Egypt president’s official plane is an ultra
long-haul Airbus A340 which offers unmatched
operational flexibility on non-stop flights over
remote areas e.g oceans and mountain ranges.
The super plane includes state-of-the art
technologies that allow the president to travel
in ultimate comfort over long distances.
The luxurious plane is further enhanced with
military security protection to keep the
president safe on air. According to the official
Airbus website Egypt president planes has a
length of 75 meters, a height of 17.22 meters
and a wing span of 63.45 meters.



5.Libya Presidents Jet (A340)

Libya President’s official plane is commonly
known as Afriqiyah One. The plane is pretty
luxurious, with luxurious rooms, bedroom,
showers, DVD players and a private kitchen.
This means that Libya’s president can survive
in this plane for several months of things go
hay wire down in Tripoli.
According to Airbus, the A340 jet boasts 4
engines and two –cla$$ cabin configuration.
The 850 km/h max speed plane costs an
estimated $411 million; and comes customized
with the latest amenities. Watch the following
video about Libya president plane’s interior.



4.Algeria President’s Plane (A340-500)

Algeria’s president rides in a gigantic
A340-500 private jet that runs on four engines.
Normally, the plane is supposed to carry about
150 pa$$engers but this one is customized to
cater for the presidents luxury needs.
It has a private bedroom, a fully equipped
shower room and high quality finish. A340 can
last airborne for up to 14 hours, non-stop.



3.Nigeria President Official Plane (Boeing
737)


Goodluck Jonathan, the flamboyant West
African leader, flies in a luxurious plane dubbed
Eagle One. According the reliable sources, the
plane cost the ordinary Nigerian taxpayer a
whopping $390 million.
A sneak peek to this revered plane shows that
the Airbus is incorporated with ground-
breaking technologies that ensure Goodluck is
safe on air.Boeing 737 is categorized as a
medium-range narrow-body airliner, an
uprecedented level of efficiency and a breath-
taking interior.



2.Zimbabwe Presidential Jet (Boeing 767)
The ever-controversial Robert Mugabe’s plane
is not a surprise member of our top 10 list of
African President’s jets. Although Zimbabwe is
conspicuously absent in the top 10 list of
African rich nations, Uncle Bob’s plane is one
of the most expensive on Africa’s soil.
Accordingly, the plane cost the Zimbabwean
tax payer a cool $400 million.
The country has so far struggled to pay $360
million but still has a debt of $40 million to
meet. The super jet has a maximum cruising
speed of 858 km/h making it one of the fastest
in this part of the world. This not to mention
its plush interiors that make it fit for royalty.



1.Morocco King’s Plane (Boeing 747-400)

The King of Morocco knows vividly what it
means to fly luxuriously. He flies in a super-
luxurious Boeing 747 which costs about $450
million. The plane has two decks – the main
deck and the upper deck. The main deck has
meeting rooms, a private cinema hall and a
spacious play area.
The upper deck has pool tables and five
private sleeping berths. Now that is what we
call the number one Presidential jet in Africa.

I know Nigerian president must be there, with all the infrastructural decay, the dwindling electricity supply, unemployment and a hoard of problems too numerous to mention we can still afford a $390 million dollar plane, it just goes to show the leaders don't care, as displayed openly by the Ogun state house of assembly guy, Thank God GMB will not fail us, I know for sure.

Nigeria and her extravagant lifestyle. Thank God the new president elect is not materialistic. These things are all vanitas vanitatum. It is on record that the prime minister of the UK, Cameron, saved the country millions of euros when he boarded a public flight to the USA on an official visit to the white house. The money that would have been spent fueling the jet, paying the staff and other miscellaneous activities was saved by just getting a ticket like every normal person. Now, that's what I call economising the cost of governance.

Imagine Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe buying a jet on credit to the tune of $400m, to pay instalmentally.

The same country you carry a bag of money to buy a loaf of bread.
African leaders and their mentality sha. That old fool deserves the Muamar Ghadaffi treatment. Disgrace him out of office, let him be found hiding in tunnels and gutters to escape the wrath of poor Zimbabweans!
