Gabon’s high government officers visited their sick President Ali Bongo who is hospitalized in Rabat.
Rabat – Gabonese Vice President Pierre-Claver Maganga Moussavou; Prime Minister Emmanuel Issoze Ngondet; and the head of the constitutional court, Marie Madeleine Mborantsuo; have all visited Bongo in Rabat’s military hospital on Tuesday.
According to Agence France Presse (AFP), the government officials arrived on Monday.
King Mohammed VI, a long-time friend of Bongo, visited the president on Monday and was pleased to see his improving health, said Maghreb Arab Press (MAP).
Bongo arrived in Rabat on November 29 to pursue his recovery after he suffered a stroke in Saudi Arabia while attending a conference on October 24.
The King suggested the transfer of Bongo from Riyadh to Morocco instead of to London.
Vice President Pierre Claver Maganga Moussavou had taken over official duties in Bongo’s absence.
Since they were young, Ali Bongo and King Mohammed VI have shared a good friendship. In 2017, Bongo shared a picture of himself and King Mohammed VI as teenagers, demonstrating their long-standing friendship.
