Crisis erupt in the process of the recent Presidential election as the incumbent President, Ali Bongo, was declared winner against his main challenger, Jean Ping who is a top diplomat and former AU official.
Jean Ping declared himself winner, claiming the the election was rigged, as media reports revealed he was leading while the counting was going on earlier.
Several leading media houses have been destroyed, attacked and set ablaze, during the post election crisis affecting the French colonized nation, by men said to be loyal to the incumbent president.
