Ivory Coast's Laurent Gbagbo (L) and his wife Simone sit in a room at Hotel Golf in Abidjan, after they were arrested, April 11, 2011. Ivory Coast's Laurent Gbagbo was arrested by opposition forces on Monday after French troops closed in on the compound where the self-proclaimed president had been holed up in a bunker for the past week. Gbagbo refused to step down when Alassane Ouattara won November's presidential election, according to results certified by the United Nations, reigniting violence that has claimed more than a thousand lives and uprooted a million people. The hotel is where his rival Ouattara has his headquarters. REUTERS/Stringer (IVORY COAST - Tags: POLITICS IMAGES OF THE DAY)
This is Former Ivorian President, Laurent Gbagbo been pulled like a goat to the slaughterhouse. He was once upon a time the most powerful man in the Ivory Coast, now he is on trial for war crimes. And this picture is evidence of the fact that power isn’t permanent. Those present arrogant government appointees must take a cue from this.
Today is their day but tomorrow wouldn’t. There’s a revolution going on all over the world and citizens are beginning to wake up to their rights.
