Gabon leader Ali Bongo seriously ill, says Presidency

Gabon’ s President Ali Bongo , hospitalised in Saudi Arabia on October 24 , is seriously ill but on the mend , the presidency said Sunday .
The 59 – year -old leader ’ s condition “ has greatly improved ” and he is in the process “ of recovering most of his functions , ” Ike Ngouoni , the spokesman for the presidency , said .

Lack of official news — along with memories of the secrecy – shrouded death of Bongo ’ s father Omar Bongo in office in 2009 after decades at the helm — has set the rumour mill churning about his health .

A foreign source close to Bongo and his French – born wife Sylvia told AFP on Wednesday that Bongo had had a stroke .
