He's the son of President of Equatorial Guinea that it is funding his playboy life with funds of oil revenues that could lift poverty in Equatorial Guinea.
Government in US (united state of America) is trying to recover assets worth more $70 million from Teodore Obiang Mangue Jr.
Mr. Teodore Jr, whose salary as Equatorial Guinea's agriculture and forestry minister was €3,200 a month, owned two Bugatti Veyrons, the most expensive and fastest street car in the world, costing about €1m a piece. He was in the process of acquiring a third. However, the majority people of Equatorial Guinea lives below the poverty line, despite the country's vast oil revenues.
France authority has seized 11 luxury cars belonging to Mr Obiang that include a Maserati, a Porsche Carrera, an Aston Martin and a Mercedes Maybach. The case was brought in French court by NGOs against African leaders who are misusing the fund of their countries for their own interest.

Denis Sassou Nguesso - President of Congo-Brazzaville
Sassou Nguesso owns 16 of most luxurious houses and flats in the French Capital and his country received $ 183 million from Britain to help his people. According to anti-corruption groups transparency International and Sherpa that Denis Sassou Nguesso is one of African politicians said to have built immense overseas property empires using public funds including the income of foreign aid from their countries treasuries.
The Sassou N'Guesso families have 24 properties in France in their own name, 112 bank accounts and various sports cars. Meanwhile, NGOs states that 70 percent of Congo-Brazzaville people live on less than $1 a day.
According to Global Witness reported that one month of personal expenditure spending by Christel Sassou Nguesso, the President son could have paid for vaccinations against measles for 80,000 Congolese babies.
Denis NGuesso has more love about his appearance and his suits then to help economy of his country or to improve the poverty of his people.
The French anti-money laundering authority, which declares that in April 2010, he ordered 91 suits from Pape for €276,000. A month earlier, in March 2010, he had bought 48 shirts for €24,000. In one year, in the 12 months from November 2009, Sassou N'Guesso spent more than €652,000 on clothes there. According to the investigative journalists Hofnung and Harel.
President Nguesso gave in an interview with RFI in defence of himself and the others without a shame of stealing from his people.
This what he said: "Why are we the only ones accused when other African heads of state and world leaders also own properties in France? I therefore consider the accusation discriminatory. "And by the way you don't mean that having been head of state for so many years it is not possible for me or any of the others to be able to raise money to buy the properties?"
He's out of touch with reality and his people, that why every corrupted leaders or dictators end up be overthrow from power. The problem is where his money coming from that he can afford to buy luxury properties in Europe, as a head of state he should be thinking how to improve the basics condition of his people in Congo and not using the money of country to live like a Sheikh or King in Europe.
CASE - 4

But evidences below show otherwise

Despite, all mineral resources of the country but the majority of Angolans lives in miserable deficiency and below poverty line. But Dos Santos's Empire is expanding in Angola and abroad.
