The US also condemned the outcome of the presidential election in the country in which Ondimba was announced the winner for a third term but was strictly opposed by the opposition and the majority of Gabonese.

The United States of America has condemned in the strongest terms, the deposition of Gabonese President, Ali Bongo Ondimba, and the military forceful takeover of power in Gabon, Central Africa.

The US also condemned the outcome of the presidential election in the country in which Ondimba was announced the winner for a third term but was strictly opposed by the opposition and the majority of Gabonese.

The US view on the events playing out in Gabon is contained in a short statement released by the US Department of State spokesperson, Matthew Miller, where the US also expressed support for the people of Gabon.

Miller said, “The United States is deeply concerned by evolving events in Gabon. We remain strongly opposed to military seizures or unconstitutional transfers of power. 

“We urge those responsible to release and ensure the safety of members of the government and their families and to preserve civilian rule. 

“In addition, we call on all actors to show restraint and respect for human rights and to address their concerns peacefully through dialogue following the announcement of election results. 

“We also note with concern the lack of transparency and reports of irregularities surrounding the election. The United States stands with the people of Gabon.”
