Africa’s longest-serving leader, President Teodoro Obiang Nguema, 73, has won a new term in office. He was declared winner of last week’s presidential election after securing his usual 90% and above in the polls. Nguema got 93% of the total vote cast and his party won 153 seats in Parliament out of the available 155.
Nguema has won the last two elections by 95% and 97% respectively, in the process raising some huge questions about the credibility of the election.
