General Nguema To Lead Gabon After Coup.

General Nguema has been named to lead Gabon after Coup.

He is the chief of the republican guard, the country’s most powerful army unit, since 2019.

As Bongo was confined to house arrest, Nguema himself was named to lead Gabon’s transitional authority, held aloft by his troops amid jubilant celebrations in the streets of the capital Libreville and the economic hub of Port-Gentil.
