A group of soldiers of Patriotic Movement of the Defense and Security Forces of Gabon early Monday took control of the national tv and radio station in Libreville the capital of Gabon. From there, the leader Lt. Kelly Ondo Obiang broadcasted a message to everyone in the country. Part of the statement said that they’ll be setting up a “National Restorative Council”. This they said is an attempt at restoring democracy to the country.
They are disappointed the President;s new year message which “reinforced doubts about the president’s ability to continue to carry out of the responsibilities of his office.” The president suffered a stroke late last year and he’s in Morocco at the moment recuperating from the illness.
This partly may be a reason for the failed coup attempt. Government spokesman Guy-Bertrand Mapangou said that things have returned to normalcy. According to him four of the five officers who attempted the coup had been arrested and a fifth is on the run. “The government is in place. The institutions are in place,” Mr Mapangou said. The Bongo’s have ruled Gabon since 1967.
