No this is not a joke … unfortunately, this is not a joke …
In order to fight against the traffic of mining products, the minister of mines and energy, Mamy Ratovomalala, has officially appointed the famous Lieutenant Colonel, Charles Randrianasoavina to be in charge of the “brigade control of mines and lapidary”. This is a department within the ministry of mines and energy which fights against mining fraud and traffic.
For those who do not know the Lieutenant Colonel Charles Randrianasoavina, he was among the CAPSAT (a military camp which stores and fixes all the weapons and ammunition of the Malagasy Army – the mutiny of the Malagasy Army against Ravalomanana’s regime started there with CAPSAT troops on March 08th, 2009) officers who conspired against the Ravalomanana’s regime.
The Lieutenant Colonel Charles Randrianasoavina was the officer who interrupted the meeting between the representatives of the International Community, the three top ranked generals of the Malagasy Army who were scheduled to lead a Military regime, Andry Rajoelina and his close collaborators, threatened the US ambassador, Neils Marquardt, with his Kalashnikov, arrested the Pastor Lala Rasendrahasina, president of the FJKM (Protestant church), and forced the three top ranked generals to go to the CAPSAT camp, on March 17th, 2009 at the EPISCOPAT (Catholic premises) Antanimena.
The Lieutenant Colonel Charles Randrianasoavina was the officer who proceeded to the arrest of Ralitera Andrianandraina, in charge of the security of the High Constitutional Court, on April 28th, 2009.
The Lieutenant Colonel Charles Randrianasoavina was the officer who proceeded to the arrest of Manandafy Rakotonirina and Mrs. Ihanta Randriamandranto, both leaders of the pro-Ravalomanana movement, on April 30th, 2009 at the Carlton Hotel.
The Lieutenant Colonel Charles Randrianasoavina was the officer who clearly death threatened Joaquim Chissano on August 28th, 2009 at the International airport of Ivato. While waiting for the return of the politicians who took part into the Maputo II negotiations round, he declared to the journalists: “if he (Joaquim Chissano) comes to Madagascar, he will deal with me …” On that day, he wanted to arrest (again) Manandafy Rakotonirina for having slandered against the Malagasy Army.
The Lieutenant Colonel Charles Randrianasoavina is now the co-director of the FIS (Intervention Force of Security) – this is the armed militia of Andry Rajoelina that the European Union wants to disarm. He took and still takes bloody and rough actions against the pro-Ravalomanana supporters when these latters want to demonstrate on the streets.
The Lieutenant Colonel Charles Randrianasoavina is now among the directors of the JIRAMA (national company which provides water and energy). He was and still is behind armed assaults against wealthy businessmen and companies.
The list is too long to be all posted here … this just an extract, few sample of how “incredible man” is Charles Randrianasoavina, a soldier who became a gangster. One thing is sure, his name with his accomplice, the Lieutenant Colonel Lylison Charles, will be on the “black list” of the AU as among the “grantees” for the “targeted sanctions”.
Few weeks ago, on March 08th, 2010, The Lieutenant Charles Randrianasoavina, during the celebration of the one year of the CAPSAT’s mutiny, declared in a interview to Antsiva radio (FM radio which belongs to the mayor PDS of Antananarivo) that he was not satisfied with his current situation (he was already director of JIRAMA and co-director of FIS at that time!). He also said that he could have become president of Madagascar if he has ever wanted. He did not deny that he and his brothers in arms at CAPSAT have done a coup and that on March 17th, 2009, he forced the three top ranked generals to hand over the power to Andry Rajoelina.
Now then in Madagascar, we have a mercenary who has lost his military honor with three caps (FIS – JIRAMA – mining brigade). One thing is sure: he is the right man at the right place if it is to impose a real dictatorship in Madagascar. The dictatorship of Andry rajoelina … but, is it really sure that he respects Andry Rajoelina? Not that sure … I always remember what the Lieutenant Colonel Charles Randrianasoavina and the Lieutenant Colonel Lylison Charles (he belongs to the Gendarmerie), have said at MAGRO Ankorondrano when “chasing” Raveloson Constant, a politician close to Ravalomanana and Manandafy: “When we do actions, NOBODY, not even ANDRY RAJOELINA can stop us”
Time to be afraid in Madagascar.
