The Gabonese government on Sunday clarified that President Ali Bongo Ondimba was recuperating in a Riyadh hospital after he was admitted mid last week.

A spokesperson, Ike Ngouoni Aila Oyouomi, in a clip posted on the government’s Twitter handle said the president remained in hospital on the advice of doctors.



He reiterated that Bongo, 59, had been hospitalized due to stress and fatigue arising from his international and local engagements in the past months. The earlier report said his hospitalization was due to “mild fatigue.”

“Following their diagnosis, the doctors prescribed a medical leave for the president.

Ali won hotly contested polls in 2016 to secure his second-term in charge. The main opponent and former colleague minister, Jean Ping, unsuccessfully contested the results.
