President Bongo of Gabon

Gabon, a nation in Africa, brings us the world’s craziest name for a political leader: President Bongo.

LIBREVILLE, 3 Oct 2005 (IRIN) – Already Africa’s longest-serving leader, Gabon’s President Omar Bongo has vowed to stand for another seven-year term in presidential elections due to be held before the end of year.

The 69-year-old, who has ruled the oil-producing Central African nation since 1967, announced his candidacy on Saturday at a youth meeting in the capital, Libreville.
