... Guinea . The political history of Equatorial Guinea is one of continuous oppression and repression of the people by the Spanish during the colonial period since the eighteenth century, and following independence, on 12 October 1968 , at the hands of two unscrupulous African dictators. Bordered by Cameroon and Gabon, Equatorial Guinea is hard to spot on the map. One of the tiniest countries in Africa, on the west coast, Equatorial Guinea is made up of the islands of Bioko, Annobon, Corisco, and Elobeys on the Atlantic Ocean, and Río Muni, inland,...

...GDP per capita and the corrupt regime, Equatorial Guinea receives very little international aid to tackle these problems. In addition, as a result of declining oil receipts (caused both by lower oil prices and increased corruption) the government is even building up debt to pay for its current limited social expenditure and economic diversity plans. Contemporary politics Democracy has never had a foothold. At independence the country was ruled by Francisco Macías Nguema, a dictator who dragged Equatorial Guinea into a social and economic abyss. In 1979...

Much more a town than a city, this small, somewhat run-down capital, after years of dereliction, has recently enjoyed some prosperity from Equatorial Guinea ’s newfound oil revenues. In 1827 British traders founded the town and named it Clarence City. It was located on the northern beaches of Bioko Island, known then as Fernando Pó, at the base of a volcanic cone (present-day Mount Malabo). Renamed Santa Isabel in 1843 , the town served as the administrative and commercial...
