Gabon President Ali Bongo returned to his country late on Sunday for the second time since suffering a stroke in October, a source at the presidency told Reuters on Monday.
Political analyst Romeo Nkoulou Ella says the attempted coup in Gabon is just a tip of the iceberg regarding the succession of President Ali Bongo.
The International Relations Department says it has taken note of the developments in Gabon and is monitoring developments in Libreville.
A source close to the government said there were gunshots around the national television station, but that the plotters appeared to be a small group of soldiers.
Gabon’s President Ali Bongo has left hospital in Rabat and will stay at a private residence in the Moroccan capital as he recovers from illness, a presidency source said Wednesday.
