English Version Press release In the original program of the funeral of the Executive Secretary of the Union Nationale, the body of André Mba Obame was to arrive in Oyem on 29 April 2015 at 2:00 pm. Twenty-four hours thereafter, André Mba Obame’s coffin is still blocked in Libreville by opposition activists who demand some explanations from the regime. In a statement from the Interior Ministry, released on the evening of 29 April 2015, the government reported a rumor related on the presence of Ali Bongo on the tarmac of the Libreville airport, minutes before the arrival of the remains in order to pay tribute on the sly to André Mba Obame, which, in their view, would be an insult to his memory. The government communication has not helped to calm the anger of these tens of thousands of activists who are now demanding to accompany the coffin of President André Mba Obame without any suspect practice. The leaders of the Union Nationale and of the Opposition
English Version Ali bongo and his minions were waiting for AMO body at the St Marie’s Cathedral, when the body did not shoe, they went clandestinely to the airport. When the people who brought the body saw this, they refuse to let him come near the body and the regime said that no flight could leave. The body was taken back to the Union Nationale Headquarter. Version française Ali Bongo et ses sbires attendaient la dépouille d’AMO à St Marie, et quand celle-ci n’est pas arrivée, ils se sont clandestinement dirigés vers l’aéroport pour l’attendre. Quand le peuple qui y accompagnait AMO est arriv é sur les lieux, il a vite fait de constater le subterfuge et a imposer un non définitif à Ali Bongo de se rapprocher du corps. Le régime en retour a fait en sorte que l’avion ne décolle pas sans qu’Ali Bongo ne s’en rapproche. Le corps a été raccompagné au siège de l’Union Nationale.
