The former president of the French National Assembly, Henri Emmanuelli has died. The news was made public on Tuesday in France. French media reports say if there is a man who will be affected by the departure of the celebrated French Socialist; it will be the former Ivorian president Laurent Gbagbo currently being detained at the International Criminal Court.
The former Ivorian leader constantly referred to him as my white twin and for good reason. The two men seen here share the same date of birth. To be sure, both men were born on the 31st of May 1945. Other affinities, more ideological ones contributed to bring the two leaders closer together. A statement by the former Ivorian head of state through his spokesman Justin Katinan Koné is expected soonest.
