Vote Bongo instead!
Actually former Gabonese President Omar Bongo died in 1999 shortly after he won re-election (and the t-shirt above was printed). When Fidel Castro stepped down as leader of Cuba in 1998, Bongo achieved the title as longest serving ruler of any country still in office (and not a monarch). Though he died in office shortly after, Bongo controlled Gabon for almost 42 years, ranking him 5th after Castro (52 years, 62 days), Chiang Kai-shek (46 years, 117 days), Kim Il-Sung (45 years, 302 days), and Muammar Gaddafi (42 years, 49 days) in a list of the longest serving rulers of any country since 1900. And who knows anything about him?
This Spring Clean I decided to salvage a heap of old t-shirts (including Bongo above) and turn them all into summer tank tops. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. I think I did all three. . . kinda.
