I know, this is hard nut to crack, even as it was again, a successful demonstration in Lome on the 17th November 2018. The Opposition and the public showed with their feet and performance on the street. That they are tired of the Gnassingbe family rule. The Togolese Republic have been a family enterprise since 1967. They have had the second and third President. There has been no other family to control and have the reign in the Republic.
The Second Generation Gnassingbe took power since 5th February 2005 and are planning this 16th December 2018 for a Referendum to extend his rule into 2030. That is because Faure like his father Eyadame, considers themselves as the owners and stakeholders of Togo. They are the ones who has the God-given right to delegate and operate the Republic without interference until death. If Faure has kids, he is surely planning that one of them will take over his time is due.
However, the Togolais, the Togolese are ready for a just republic, a republic with people representing them and not just the henchmen, the appointed cronies of the Gnassingbe family. Which is how it is today.
The Togolese will not be swayed by ECOWAS or the Group of 5. They was on the streets showing solidarity with the cause, with TogoDebout. They where out saying the time of Faure Gnassingbe has to be over. He has to step down and leave the throne. He is not their ruler and overlord. He is not their owner and they are not his tenants. That is how he acts and appears, however, that is not the case.
The Togolese have again showed to the world. That they are ready for another ruler, another system and the end of the Gnassingbe Dynasty. The march yesterday in Lome, showed again the power of the people, their will and determination in a peaceful manner. That they want an end of the 51 years of Gnassingbe.
It is time for justice, freedom and liberation from the oppression from one family. Peace.
