A video has surfaced on social media where the ousted Gabonese President, Ali Bongo, was begging his international friends to “make noise” following Wednesday’s coup.

Bongo said, “My name is Ali Bongo Ondimba, President of Gabon. I am sending a message to all friends that we have all over the world, to tell them to make noise, to make noise.”

Born Alain Bernard Bongo on February 9, 1959, in Congo-Brazzaville, the 64-year-old was Gabon’s president from 2009 when his Omar Bongo, who ruled Gabon for almost 42 years, from 1967 died.

The Trend of Coup d’etat in Africa

There is a sudden change in Africa political scene with the outburst of coup stories following the failure of politicians to manage the civilian rule in their respective countries.

If the trend continue, it will might result into unforseen battles within and outside the continent as any attempt to recapture power will be vehemently resisted by those in authority.

Let our leaders use their good mind of reasoning to curb emergence of coup d’etat in the Africa nations to avoid political instability, and encourage economic growth among others.
