Died on November 30, 2021 at the Libreville University Hospital Center (Chu), at the age of fifty, the page of the charismatic leader of the Union of National Education Teachers (SEENA), also General Delegate of the National Convention of unions in the national education sector (Conasysed) and General Secretary of Dynamique Unitaire (DU), Louis Patrick Mombo, was finally turned on June 25 in Libreville. At the end of the Extraordinary Congress of this union, Blaise Nkoghe Meye succeeded him.

The page of the charismatic leader of the trade union movement of the national education sector in Gabon, Louis Patrick Mombo is irremediably turned. Having bowed out the last number 30, the one who until his death was Secretary General of the Union of National Education Teachers (SEENA) was replaced at an extraordinary Congress on June 25 in Libreville. Blaise Nkoghe Meye, who until then was acting was confirmed by his peers in this position.

Seven months after his disappearance, SEENA members held their first post-Mombo Congress. After the national anthem and the minute’s silence in homage to the deceased, several speeches were read, including those of friendly and partner trade unions and federations. A substance to draw from it: the recognition and the homage supported to the former trade unionist for the fight carried out for the rights of man in general and of the worker in particular.

In addition, SEENA members placed particular emphasis on the need for training, the improvement of union culture and on the concerns surrounding the amounts of dues. They also proceeded to the vote of the new director office. The list led by Blaise Nkoghe Meye against that represented by Frédérick Loba, absent, recorded 29 votes out of the 30 expressed.
