The changes are mostly technical as ministers swap posts.The Gabonese cabinet was reshuffled by Prime Minister Emmanuel Issoze Ngondet on February 20th two months ahead of the legislative elections. Around 10 ministers swapped portfolios.Two new ministers were announced and the Minister of Agriculture, Yves Fernand Manfoumbi, was dismissed. The move was linked to a visit he made to his electoral stronghold on February 18th where he danced inappropriately at a rally. Pictures of him rolling on the ground were roundly condemned on the Internet.Francis Nkea Dzigue, previously Minister of Justice, remains in the cabinet even though his colleagues had called for his resignation following a strike that paralysed the justice system in December. He has been transferred to the Ministry of Housing. He is replaced by Edgard Anicet Mboumbou Miyakou. (RFI, Paris 21/2)The government is now as follows:President: Ali Ben Bongo OndimbaPrime Minister: Emmanuel Issoze‐NgondetDeputy Prime Minister: Bruno Ben MoubambaMinisters of StateAlain‐Claude Bilie‐by‐NzePaul Biyoghe MbaGuy Bertrand MapangouDenise Mekamne (f)Bruno Ben MoubambaMoubelet‐Boubeya PacomeFrancis Nkea NdzigueJean‐Fidele OtandaultJean‐Pierre OyibaJosue MbadingaMinistersAgriculture and Livestock in charge of Implementing the Seed Programme: Biendi Maganga MoussavouBudget: Jean‐Fidele OtandaultDigital Economy, Communication, Culture and Arts and Government Spokesman: Alain‐Claude Bile‐by‐NzeEconomy, Planning and Development: Regis Immongault TataganiFamily and Child
