A former high-ranking government official and member of parliament of the ruling Gabonese Democratic Party, Dr. Moundounga abruptly resigned from his cabinet position in the wake of a brutal crackdown on peaceful demonstrators and unprecedented Human rights' violations early September 2016. The protests were sparked by Pres. Ali Bongo's refusal to concede defeat following the August 31, 2016 presidential election. Dr. Moundounga had to flee the country because of an attempt on his life and multiple death threats.
Lunch will be served.
