Tensions are rising in the African nation of Gabon ahead of the presidential polls.

Ali Bongo, the eldest son of the late president, Omar Bongo, hopes to take over the seat his father occupied for 41 years.

But most Gabonese, living in extreme poverty, are anxious to see their country's wealth shared beyond the Bongo family and its network of allies and associates.
