King Mohammed VI visited Gabonese President Ali Bongo Ondimba in Rabat’s military hospital, where he is in recovery.
Rabat – After a visit on Monday, King Mohammed VI was pleased to see the health status of the Gabonese president is improving, according to Maghreb Arab Press (MAP).
The Gabonese president arrived in Rabat on November 29 to recuperate following a stroke in Saudi Arabia.
The King requested the transfer of the Gabonese president, suggesting he finish his recovery in Morocco instead of London.
On November 27, Ondimba’s wife Sylvia Bongo Ondimba announced that the president would leave Riyadh for Rabat to finish recovering.
Gabon’s vice president, Pierre Claver Maganga Moussavou, has taken over official duties in Bongo’s absence.
The monarch and the Gabonese president share a strong friendship. In 2017, Bongo shared a picture of himself and the King as teenageers. The picture illustrates the long-standing friendship between the two leaders.
