President Obiang was born back in 1942, during the Second World War. He got a military education in Spain and became a leader in the Armed Forces. President Nguema was Obiang’s uncle, and Obiang was appointed over the national guard and as the governor of Bioko.

As President Nguema began to fear he would be overthrown, he turned on his own family. He had the brother of Teodoro killed and made the whole extended family fear for their lives. Finally, to end the insanity, Obiang led a military coup against his uncle on 3 August, 1979, and successfully displaced him.

Obiang has held office ever since. His birthday remains a national holiday and no doubt will continue to be so long as he continues to be the president of Equatorial Guinea.
