Incidentally, Benin's (or Dahomey as it then was) former President, Emile Zinsou is evidently still alive. Having been sentenced to death in absentia 32 years ago he's probably stopped looking over his shoulder, but at 88, his days may be numbered. Not a lot of information, though.

 

Emile Zinsou, now 96, was hospitalised in June and the outlook doesn't look particularly promising...  (article is in French) 

 

Never heard of either.
But I can see how someone might have said to Emile, "Are you Dahomey that is President of Benin?"

For another 27 years, presumably...


Or 27 days, one never knows in Africa.

We should nominate Compaore for honorary membership of the 27 club...

Zambia's President Michael Sata's health fails, according to reports, but his medical doctor wife insists he's in 'sound health' - she should know, right?

Haven't heard anything from Robert Mugabe in a while.Could he still be alive.


He was at Mandela's ceremony


Let's hope the sight works as inspiration.
