as reported from Libreville, Yves-Laurent Goma

Casimir Oye Mba was a highly respected figure. Gabon’s former president Omar Bongo, whose president was threatened after the 1990 national conference, called on him to lead the government.

As an experienced intellectual, Oyé Mba became Prime Minister for four years. Very humbly, he left his posts during a reorganization of the Foreign Minister. Oyé Mba then chained ministerial portfolios, including planning and oil.

An economist educated in France, where he received his doctorate in 1969, Oyé Mba was also governor of the Bank of Central African States (BEAC) from 1978 to 1990. With a well-stocked address book and reputation as a meticulous man, a Gabonese was called “Cam ‘la Classe” for finesse in his ideas and chic in his costumes, the presidency sought after Omar Bongo’s death in 2009. He finally ended his candidacy before the vote by invoking pressure.

2016, he tries his luck again, but his campaign is not gaining momentum. He then gathered Jean Ping, from whom he remained faithful until his death.
