Il re vagabondo 15.06.12

NewStatesman racconta la storia di Valentine Strasser che nel 1992, a 25 anni, divenne il più giovane capo di stato al mondo grazie a un golpe nella Sierra Leone.
Oggi vive con la madre e trascorre le giornate ubriaco sul ciglio della strada.

The story of Strasser, who seized power in a military coup at the age of 25 in 1992 and ruled for four years until he was deposed by the same method, is unusual even by the experience of West African dictatorships. His improbable rise to executive power and his precipitous fall to roadside penury is a parable of the human consequences of premature kingship.
