For example: “The office (of the President at the unity palace) has no TV but a transistor that switches between radio shows and classical music. The president listens Beethoven or Handel, classical tastes inherited from his priestly formation in priesthood (Alsatian) of the Holy Spirit and his visit to the Akono seminary (Center region).

No one has ever seen him in the office without his eternal dark double-breasted suit” writes Georges Dougueli, the author of the investigation.
