Freemasonry: Ali Bongo Ondimba reinstalled Grand Master in Gabon

On November 12, in Libreville, Ali Bongo Ondimba was reinstalled Grand Master during an assembly where many African, European and North American Masonic delegations were present.

The Gabonese Head of State appointed and installed Lin Mombo pro-Grand Master and Michel Mboussou Deputy Grand Master (number two). The first is the husband of Marie-Madeleine Mborantsuo, the President of the Constitutional Council; the second is that of Lucie Milebou, the President of the Senate.

A dozen African Grand Lodges (Benin, Cameroon, Congo, Ghana, Liberia, Mozambique, Nigeria, Senegal, Togo) had sent a delegation, generally led by their Grand Master: businessman and former minister Alain Roger Coeffé for Burkina Faso, lawyer Sylvère Koyo for Côte d'Ivoire, and former Foreign Minister Abdoul Kabèlè Camara for Guinea.
