The first black deputy in Spain, Rita Bosaho , who came to her seat in Congress after the December 2015 elections, ascends on the right hand side of Irene Montero, brand new Minister of Equality.

Bosaho, a 55-year-old Guinean woman, has been appointed as the new general director of Equal Treatment and Racial Ethnic Diversity after the councilor of the City Council of Gijón Alba González resigned from that position for being white to give visibility to "women belonging to racialized groups ".

With a degree in History, she had been working for 23 years as health personnel at the General Hospital of Alicante when she arrived in Parliament. In an interview with El País , he said that his departure from Equatorial Guinea , when he was four years old (in 1969) "was a bit traumatic." She was welcomed by a family of a military father and resided in Cádiz and Cartagena before arriving in Alicante.

His adoption family provided him with an older sister, Pepa, his main support with his partner and his 23-year-old son.

Convinced feminist and cat lover, she has a peculiarity that made her headlines five years ago when she came to Congress. His uncle was Enrique Gori Molubela , "His Excellency, President of the General Assembly of the Autonomous Regime of Equatorial Guinea" who came to Franco's attorney . We explain it.

Gori was a fighter for the rights of his people, especially members of the Bubí ethnic group, who were originally from the island of Bioko, former Fernando Poo. In this Rita has gone out to him, because he fights for the interests of the battered, immigrants and the dispossessed. He has even worked in Honduras, shoulder to shoulder, with the women of Tegucigalpa to defend their rights.

Gori Molubela entered the Banapá seminar in the 40s. In 1951 he participated in the student revolts against the Government. A year later, he went to Spain and enrolled in Law, which never ended. Rita, on the other hand, nursing assistant, apart from her degree, has a master's degree in Identities and Integration in Contemporary Europe and prepares a doctoral thesis that deals with the impact of European colonialism in Africa .

Rita got 200,885 votes in Alicante in 2015, a figure that fell by half in 2019. Her uncle Enrique Gori was a great speaker , like her. In 1964 he returned to Fernando Poo as president of the Provincial Council, being at the same time attorney in the Spanish Courts (those of Franco) and president of the General Assembly of the Autonomous Government of Equatorial Guinea. No one in his family until then had reached that high ... until today.

"Gori Molubela was part of the Equatoguinean intelligentsia selected to direct the destinies of the Spanish province in Africa. In October 1966, he met Francisco Franco in the El Pardo palace. That same month, he had received the Order of Africa in the category of Commander, at the same time as Pilar Primo de Rivera, sister of José Antonio, who entered the category of Grand Officer, who also agreed in the Cortes with him ... ", was published in EL MUNDO. Indeed, Enrique was akin to the dictator. And Rita very critical, much more left-wing than her uncle, clearly capitalist.

Enrique was also key in the independence of Equatorial Guinea . In 1968 he headed the delegation to the UN, in New York, shortly after the country's admission to that organization. "He would fall out of favor soon. Enrique Gori was tried on charges of participating in an attempted coup against the satrap Francisco Macías, and sentenced to 25 years in jail in a trial without justice."

Wherever you are, you will be proud of your niece.
