Who is Teodorin Nguema Obiang?...You Can Call Him Ur Friend...

A collection of supercars confiscated from the son of Equatorial Guinea’s president have been auctioned off in Switzerland.


The cars were seized by Swiss authorities as part of an investigation into Teodorin Nguema Obiang.
He is vice-president to his father, Teodoro Obiang Nguema, who has ruled Equatorial Guinea for 40 years.
Twenty-five of Mr Obiang’s cars went under the hammer at a golf club near Geneva on Sunday.
The cars, among them Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Bentleys and Rolls Royces, fetched about $27m (£21.9m; 26m Swiss francs) in total.
Under a deal will prosecutors, some $23m will go to social projects in Equatorial Guinea, a former Spanish colony where poverty is rife.
One of the most “rare and remarkable” cars, a 2014 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, was sold for $8.3m to an anonymous buyer.
It is a new world record price for a Lamborghini sold at auction, British auctioneers Bonhams said.
The hammer price for the 354km/h (220mph) car, introduced to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary, was about 50% more than its pre-sale estimate.


An Aston Martin One-77 Coupe, described as an “absolute rocket ship” by the auction house, went for $1.5m.
“Cars like this would be the jewel of any collection, but to have them all together is really quite extraordinary,” Lynnie Farrant, press officer for auctioneer Bonhams, told the BBC.


The cars attracted interest from collectors across the world, especially Europe, Ms Farrant said.
Several supercars were bought by an agent for a collector in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, a Swiss bidder told Reuters news agency.
Around 50 other cars were sold at the auction in the Swiss village of Cheserex, 30km (18 miles) from Geneva.
A 1956 Aston Martin Lagonda, owned by the late Claude Nobs, founder of the Montreux Jazz Festival, was among them.

Mr Obiang is seen as the heir-apparent to his father, who has been president since 1979.
The 51-year-old served as an adviser to his father and minister for agriculture, before being appointed vice-president in 2012.
In international media reports, Mr Obiang has drawn criticism for his extravagant spending habits and playboy lifestyle.
In a 2004 article, the New York Times described him as “a rap music entrepreneur and bon vivant, fond of Lamborghinis and long trips to Hollywood and Rio de Janeiro”.
Swiss prosecutors were investigating Mr Obiang for money laundering and misuse of public funds but dropped the case in February this year.
The prosecutors said they closed the inquiry into Mr Obiang as part of an arrangement to sell his cars to fund social programs in his country.
In 2017, a French court handed him a three-year suspended jail term for corruption.


For perspective, $27m/ is kshs. 2.7billion spent on cars alone. Who still wants evidence that boron s are still evolving?

what a piece of shiet bonobo! the stories of the nguemas piss me off

A real mkora.

It’s all well and good but what if we bonobos grabbed the 26,000 acre Del monte shamba and distributed it to the poor and the landless would we hear the end of it? I mean the 26,000 acres were stolen from the bonobos many decades ago by these macaques.
What of Delamerer’s 100,000 acres… kiasi ipewe IDPs juu Kenya govt. ilikataa kuwasaidia. Some portions are distributed to the Kenyan poor, I wonder how these white macaques would react. I mean, those are also stolen/looted assets.

this man and his father should be taken to a public square and shot, live on National TV. These people and their kind are the reason Africa is where it is.

A drop in the ocean. What about african money stashed in swiss banks, african minerals processed by swiss companies, francophone currencies held in france, properties in london, paris, belgium e.t.c.
