Absent from the country for more than two months for treatment, Ali Bongo Odimba returned to Libreville in the night of Monday to Tuesday, according to the Gabonese media.
Various media sources in Libreville confirmed that the President’s plane landed at one-hour local time at Libreville airport. President Ali Bongo will be present at the swearing in of the new government this Tuesday, January 15, 2019.
But before his return to the country, Ali Bongo was preceded by King Mohamed VI, who is enjoying his holidays at Pointe Denis, a peninsula in front of Libreville, has received several politicians to try to pacify the internal quarrels in the entourage of the President.
The good offices of the King would have borne fruit, because no one of the opposition has yet commented in one way or another the return of Ali Bongo. A momentary return writes the newspaper La Tribune as the Gabonese head of state is expected to return to Rabat, the Moroccan capital, to continue his convalescence.
But the menu of his stay in Libreville is essentially official, Ali Bongo will attend this morning to the swearing of the new government.
A government announced Saturday night but who, through his swearing in should dedicate the first public appearance of President Bongo since October 24, 2018.
