King Mohammed VI will most likely spend New Year’s eve in Gabon.
Bongo has been in Morocco for several times. He and the King are old friends. In late July, the Gabonese president shared a picture of him and King Mohammed VI as teenagers, to demonstrate the long-time friendship between them.
The picture posted on Facebook shows young Ali Bongo and Crown Prince Mohammed, taken at a time when they used to meet frequently as their fathers, Omar Bongo and King Hassan II, were also friends.
