Gabon: The State of Health of President Ali Bongo Creates Panic in Libreville

It has been three weeks since the people of Gabon are without news of their president Ali Bongo. Since the Gabonese head of state was struck by a stroke on October 24, 2018, his state of health is more and more worrying.

Even though he had been in intensive care in Morocco for several months, his condition remains worrying. Barely a dozen days spent in Gabon, Ali Bongo visibly weakened and still badly in point was transferred this time on the side of London to be treated again.

But information indicates that President Ali Bongo is rather on the side in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Since then, no information on the state of health of the Gabonese president. What caused a panic wind mainly on the side of Libreville.


For opponents of the Bongo regime like Jean Ping, the vacancy of power must already be noted. In the same perspective, the presidential ambitions are lent to some close collaborators of President Ali Bongo. This is the case, for example, of Ali Bongo’s Cabinet Director Brice Laccruche Alihanga, who is presented as being very committed to the Gabonese populations.

Brice Laccruche Alihanga is also accused of ogling President Ali Bongo’s chair. Although there may be some reservations, it is clear that Ali Bongo’s Cabinet Director is disturbing. And his active presence on the political scene raises some questions.
