Opposition parties in Gabon as well as the civil society are questioning the health status of President Ali Bongo.
They believe the president is still not in a position to lead the country due to his health. Ali Bongo returned to his country last week on Saturday after a five-month medical leave in Morocco.
His prolonged absence stoked concern about power vacuum, apparently sparking a brief attempted coup in early January.
Following these concerns from the opposition and the civil society, a platform named ‘Le Groupe des Dix or ‘The group of Ten’ was created. But what is the exact aim of this platform and who are its members?
Marc Ona Essangui, a member of Gabon’s civil society explains.
