General Aziz

Aziz & The Gang

This is the picture of General Mohamed Ould Abdelaziz, commonly known as Aziz. He is currently “President” of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania.

I use the quotation marks because Aziz’s ascent to power in Mauritania was through a series of coups and intrigues. His insatiable ambition and lust for power culminated in the July 2008 elections which he stole fair and square amidst worldwide indifference. Anyway, who cares?
