Shy, but still! While some workers in the capital preferred to “work away and recuperate,” others, on the other hand, emphasized the professional conscience and found the way to work, but not always on time.

Eight thirty minutes, this Tuesday, January 2, 2018 in Libreville. That is one hour after the regulatory time of the beginning of the work in the Gabonese administration. The Egyptian Cooperation Hospital (Egypto) is already recording a large number of patients. Sitting in front of the offices still closed, some get impatient: ” I’ve been here since 6:30, I had to be among the first. But, as you can see, the Cnamgs office is still closed. We wait because without the card, it is not possible to go to consultation. And with the holidays yesterday, we do not even know if they will come, ” complains Lady Emilie.

In the streets of the capital, the monster traffic jams of working days gave way to a rather fluid traffic. No traffic jam at Beau-Sejour, Awendje, Nzeng-Ayong and other Triomphal Boulevard (Foreign Affairs) until mid-afternoon. And the weather, rather gloomy in the morning, gave Libreville the appearance of a ghost town: bus stops and other pickup points teeming with people at so-called peak hours were almost deserted.
