The 60-year-old, whose every move has been scrutinised for signs of ill health, attended commemorations on the eve of Gabon’s anniversary of independence from France in 1960, the AFP news agency reported on Friday.
A smiling Bongo spoke with security officers before laying a wreath at the tomb of Leon Mba, the first president of the small oil-rich country.
Bongo walked with a stick and an aide helped him to climb several steps. The ceremony lasted half an hour, which was shorter than in previous years.
