A tall silhouette stands out against the pale walls of Paris Sorbonne University. From this impressive frame emerges a voice as agile as a cat, slaloming between syllables like so many cracks in the pavement. A Franco-Gabonese actor, singer and film-maker, Jann Halexander has just published a book on an oft-talked-about subject, UFOs, but concerning a rarely-talked-about geographical area: Central Africa. 

With a population of over 200 million, and a surface area more than twice the size of India, this little-known territory has archaeological traces dating back over 100,000 years. 

This raises the question of whether UAP sightings have taken place over such a long period of time, and in what form they have been described and transmitted by witnesses.

It is precisely this question that seems to drive Jann Halexander in “The Ufo Issue in Central Africa”. His process for answering it is a collection of interviews peppered with explanations, shedding light on the cultural and semantic specificities of his interlocutors.

In this way, he leaves it up to the reader to make his or her own analysis, and even his or her own account of events. Some of the testimonies also provide unique insights, such as this passage: 

"A short distance from the crossroads where I could take the slip road to the Glass district, on the way up, I saw a white egg running. I thought I was going mad. A white egg with frog legs."

In an exclusive interview with UAPCheck News, Jann Halexander tells us that this is one of the most striking testimonies he has heard:

"There is a good testimony, the one with the egg. A big white egg with some legs is running in the street of Libreville, capital of Gabon. It's interesting because it's very weird and it's a good representation. I think it's interesting because a lot of people, when you talk about UFO, they think about the classical object in the sky, it's a caricature. But in reality, some are very, very weird. This one is also very interesting because this kind of object was observed in Europe too."

In fact, during these periods, numerous accounts describe egg-shaped UAPs a few meters high, capable of landing on the ground and then taking off again, and equipped with leg-like appendages to hold themselves on the ground. However, testimonials reporting the ability of these objects to move on the ground using these appendages are extremely rare. This ability could even enable the craft to evade ground-based interception attempts, even in very rugged environments. 

However, later in the discussion, the witness states, "I avoided talking about it too much so as not to come across as a nutcase."

This shows that you don't have to be a pilot or an American to suffer the wrath of ostracism when you bear witness to the presence of unknown elements in the environment, especially when they demonstrate characteristics outside any admissible cultural framing. 

The witness concludes: 

"I think back to the egg experience. I'm forty and it still gives me a chill when I talk about it. It's time for the Gabonese society to talk about these issues."

One might ask whether this comment applies only to the Gabonese society and not to all human cultures. 

Jann Halexander's work is a repertory of observations-interpretations of witnesses that will leave no one indifferent, and which leaves one wondering at the quantity of testimony still untapped in the second most populous continent on the planet.
