Equatorial Guinea  president appoints son VP

Equatorial Guinea’s President, Teodoro Obiang Nguema has appointed his son, Teodoro “Teodorín” Obiang Mangue as the country’s Vice-President.

Obiang senior who is the longest serving president in the world, has been the Central African country’s president over the last 37 years.

Before his son, Obiang junior’s recent appointment by his father, he was Equatorial Guinea’s “second vice president”. And with the elevation of the 47 year-old via a decree read on television, according to local media, he would be in charge of defence and security of the tiny oil-rich nation.

In his sixth term in office, power has been in President Obiang’s family since Equatorial Guinea got independence. The current president toppled his uncle in a violent coup in 1979, before sentencing him to death by firing squad.

Wanted in France on suspicion of embezzlement, corruption and stealing of public funds, in 2014, U.S. authorities forced Obiang junior to relinquish his $30 million home in Malibu, Calif.; a Gulfstream jet; a Ferrari; and dozens of pieces of Michael Jackson memorabilia worth more than $1 million, all bought with money funneled through offshore bank accounts.

The only sovereign African state in which Spanish is an official language, Equatorial Guinea has an estimated population of over 1.2 million.
