Gabon’s Youthful Military Officers Take Control, Vow a Brighter Future

In the very early hours of Wednesday, August 30, a group of 12 vibrant Gabonese military officers commandeered the airwaves, announcing their assumption of power in a televised address. This bold move followed the announcement by Gabon’s election authority that President Ali Bongo had secured a third term in office.

In a statement broadcasted on Gabon 24 TV, one of the officers expressed their reasons for action, citing “reckless and unpredictable governance that has eroded social unity, pushing the nation toward potential chaos.” Their mission, they declared, was to safeguard peace and usher in a new era. As news of the military’s intervention spread, there was no immediate response from the Gabonese government.

The young military leaders emphasized their commitment to the nation and the international community. “Gabon is now on the path to a brighter future,” they proclaimed. They called for calm and unity among the public, fellow African communities residing in Gabon, and the Gabonese diaspora.

“We reiterate our dedication to fulfilling Gabon’s obligations to both the national and international communities,” stated one officer, reading from a prepared statement. “The people of Gabon, we are embarking on a journey towards a happier tomorrow.”
