- Gabon President Ali Bongo fell ill on October 24 while at an economic forum.
- Mr Bongo received treatment in Saudi Arabia for an illness that has not been officially revealed.
- He is recuperating in a private residence in Moroccan capital.
Gabon's President Ali Bongo has left hospital in Rabat and will stay at a private residence in the Moroccan capital as he recovers from illness, a presidency source said Wednesday.
The 59-year-old, who fell ill on October 24 at an economic forum, arrived in Morocco last week following treatment in Saudi Arabia for an illness that has not been officially revealed.
The decision to dismiss him from the military hospital in Rabat came "after authorisation from the medical team", the source in the Moroccan presidency said.
Morocco's King Mohammed VI had on Monday paid a visit to Bongo at the hospital, with the palace issuing handout pictures of their meeting.
The images failed to put to rest rumours about Bongo's health, with numerous posts on social media networks back home in Gabon raising doubts about their authenticity.
