Gabon ex-justice minister: They are trying to kill me

08 September 2016, 11:52

Libreville - Gabon's ex-justice minister, Seraphin Moundounga, who resigned from his position earlier this week has made a startling claim that there has been attempts on his life since he made the announcement, BBC Live reports.

Moundounga resigned on Monday this week over government's refusal to recount controversial ballots that saw protests and allegations of fraud after President Ali Bongo was re-elected by a slim margin.

The country's opposition claimed that the ruling party rigged the elections.

Moundounga claimed that he now faced threats to his life since his resignation.

"Last night there was an attempt on my life, my house was attacked by five men, and my guard was tied up. They broke everything in my house, including the security camera, ignoring the fact that those security camera images are safe guarded.By resigning from the government, I'm professing my commitment to the Gabonese people," Moundounga was quoted as saying. 

According to an earlier News24 report, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Tuesday that a recount should be held of the votes in Gabon.

"It would be wise to do a recount," was quoted in the media as saying, but he said his first priority was ensuring the safety of the 14 000 French nationals who lived in the central African nation.
