The diplomat also says Gbagbo's closest adviser and longtime friend had abandoned him, leaving the bunker to seek refuge inside the French ambassador's home. OYO LO WA

Re: Ivory Coast’s Gbagbo Surrenders by Babasessy(m): 9:43pm On Apr 05, 2011
Gbagbo is yet to surrender, he is hunkered down in bunker at his home, but 'willing to resign' as negotiations are still ongoing.
Re: Ivory Coast’s Gbagbo Surrenders by Princek12(m): 9:44pm On Apr 05, 2011
All these old, African leaders annoy me. Why can't they do things peacefully? Why do innocent people have to die just because a dictator refuses to give up power after his time has expired?
Re: Ivory Coast’s Gbagbo Surrenders by duduspace(m): 9:54pm On Apr 05, 2011
Good news another stupid wannabe dictator bites the dust. I'm happy for Ivorians.

Ivory Coast strongman says he's not stepping down

ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast – Ivory Coast's strongman leader Laurent Gbagbo holed up in a bunker inside the presidential residence Tuesday, defiantly maintaining he won the election four months ago even as troops backing the internationally recognized winner encircled the home.
Gbagbo's comments by telephone to France's LCI television came as French officials and a diplomat said he was negotiating his departure terms after French and U.N. forces launched a military offensive Monday. Democratically elected leader Alassane Ouattara has urged his supporters to take Gbagbo alive.

Hope you know the guy taking over from him is older than him!!! This guy also does not accept election results that does not favor him so we are likely to have the same case in the next five years if the is even peace at all,
This western democratic thingy is not working for us in west africa because of the etnic/historical nature of our society, the earlier we realise this the better for us. If not the west will continue to use us as the please.

Most of the posts here shows that many have not taken their time to read about Ivorian crisis before making a comment, someone said he should be tried for war crimes, what about Quatarra?
what about over 900 people massacred by his troops in just few days ago?
did Quatarra really win the election?
are there  concrete proofs that the election were not rigged in the rebel controlled north as alleged by Gbagbo?
why can't the UN take time to investigate all these allegations in the first place?
what is an elected man doing with the rebels?
why was he supported by the rebels? or has he been part of the rebels for so long?
Why did the UN placed an arm embargo on Gbagbo but allowed the rebels to operate?
Why was an election conducted in the first place without first ensuring a disarment of the rebels which was fighting against an elected government?

There are more to this than just a sit tight dictator fighting at all cost to rule forever, there is no doubt that many Ivorians too are sceptical about Quatarra and what he and his rebel army stands for.
Anyone who fails to see this situation beyond just a Gbagbo/Quatarra issue is shallow minded and must have been brainwashed by the imperialists media.

Gbagbo, bros hang in there.

Call their bluff -  Dey no go do you nothing.

We with you niggga.

Bleep Da Imperialist and their puppets.

this is what selfishness causes
Re: Ivory Coast’s Gbagbo Surrenders by tunnytox(m): 10:13pm On Apr 05, 2011
The French want Quattara in power at all costs obviously to protect their economic interest and that the reason they decided to bomb the presidential palace to assist the rebels to finish the job. as far as i'm concerned the election was not conclusive and I still don't know who gave the UN the mandate to declare a winner in an election that was conducted within that country. Quattara is not a saint, he has so much blood in his hands and will definitely work continuosly to the advantage of his masters (France). Time will tell
