Definitely, I am convinced that the general secretary of the political party AREMA (socialist trend), Pierrot Rajaonarivelo, is becoming the new “problem” of Andry “TGV” Rajoelina.
Yesterday, Pierrot Rajaonarivelo went to his hometown in Toamasina after 07 years of exile. During his speech (in a meeting in Barikadimy square that gathered around thousands of people), he declared that Andry “TGV” Rajoelina and the HAT (High Authority of Transition) must, whatever they like it or not, grant a global and complete amnesty for all the political exiles of 2002.
During his rally, one of his bodyguard was seen holding an AK 47. This image, which has been relaid by most of local TV channels, has scandalized the HAT homeland security, Andriamihanta Organès. He immediately gave instructions to the police to investigate and to arrest the bodyguard. According to the law, only security forces (Army – Genadarmerie – Police) have the right to have and to use such type of weapon. “This is unacceptable!” he said in a last minute declaration in TVM (Public TV channel).
So what? I remember very well that during the TGV rallies (in March 2009) some of Andry “TGV” Rajoelina’s bodyguards had AK 47 too.
Are Andry “TGV” Rajoelina and the HAT afraid of Pierrot Rajaonarivelo? He has the means (especially the financial means: he is deemed by some local world bank consultants as the richest man in Madagascar), the aura and the “appropriate age” (according to the current constitution) to become the first president of the 04th republic.
Let’s wait and see …
