President elect Teodoro Obiang Nygueme has garnered 99.2 percent of total votes cast in the just ended presidential elections of Equatorial Guinea making him win a sixth term in office.
Obiang triumphed over six other candidates, winning all but 326 of the 40,926 votes counted, according to a government-run website.
Dos Santos and Obiang preside over Africa's No. 2 and 3 crude-oil producers, respectively, and are accused of embezzling much of the resulting wealth, while not distributing it fairly, if at all, to their citizens. Equatorial Guinea, once a Spanish colony, has the biggest gap of any country worldwide between its per-capita wealth and its human development index — a sure sign that there are a few outliers skewing the per-capita figure way upward.
