Revelations of Ali Ben Bongo's Origin.

Controversy about the parentage of Ali Bongo has poisoned the countryside of Gabon's presidential election on 27 August. His opponents, taking the revelations of journalist Pierre Pean, said he would lied on his schooling in the Gard. Midi Libre proves otherwise. Ali Bongo, president of Gabon since 2009, is who he claims to be? That is to say, the son of Omar Bongo, figure in French Africa and President of Gabon from 1967 until his death in 2009? A son he sent to school in France, particularly in Ales, in Gard? Or is it a child adopted in the late 1960s, during the Biafran war? The controversy, stabbing, raged for several years in this small central African country. It even poisoned the campaign of the last presidential election, Bongo candidate being challenged to prove his origin. He must indeed be of Gabonese birth. For the journalist Pierre Péan he is a small adopted Biafran. In his book New African Affairs, published in 2014 by Fayard, journalist Pierre Péan supports the view of the adoption of a child, English and Biafran. It also denies the Defence of Ali Bongo, who claims to have been a schoolboy in the Gard, well before the Biafran war (1967-1970). Pierre Péan arguments have largely been taken over by the opposition, the head of which is Jean Ping. Ali's alesian classmates testify that Ali was with them. Our survey proves that what Ali Bongo said is true. In 1965, he was still called Alain Bongo (his name changed in 1973 when his converted to Islam) studied well on the benches of a alésienne public school. We found his classmates and his teacher. They testify, telling many stories in the survey devoted to the subject to be published this Thursday, September 15, 2016 in Midi Libre. We also found traces of Odette Perret, former missionary who cared for him, but also many other children of Gabonese dignitaries in Ales, between 1946 and 1970.
