Gabon’s politics is a family affair…Almost all politicians are related!

Written by Deckson N.

Jean Ping, presidential candidate against Ali Bongo  was the husband of Pascaline Bongo, Omar Bongo‘s daughter and sister of Ali Bongo, they had two children. So Jean Ping is the former brother-in-law of Ali Bongo. Ali Bongo is the uncle of the children of Jean Ping. Chantale Myboto supporting Jean Ping had a daughter with Omar Bongo, father of Ali Bongo. Her husband Paul Marie Ngondjout is the brother of Laure Olga Ngondjout, mediator of the Gabonese Republic and former member of the National Council for Democracy burned by the population in the recent post-election events; He is also a longtime close friend Ali Bongo.

The current President of the Senate Mrs. Boussougou is the mother of the wife of Franck Ping, son of Jean Ping and Pascaline Bongo.

Afriquita Agondjo, member of the Constitutional Court is the niece of Jean Ping (daughter of his late brother, Me Ogondjo Okawe).

The judge Augue of the Constitutional Court is the close relative of Obiang Demezo’o (close relative to Ping).

And the list is very long.
