China is building these three African parliaments ‘at no cost’

Burned down parliament of Gabon


China offered to rebuild the parliament of Gabon in 2017 after it was razed down during the 2016 election violence.

According to a local report, the Chinese authorities agreed to rebuild the edifice during a meeting held between President Ali Bongo Ondimba and vice-president of the standing committee of the National People’s Congress of China, Ji Bingxuan, during a two-day official visit to Gabon last year.

The cost of the renovation and the duration of work was not disclosed.
