Dictatorial governments and systems usually have life-time presidents. I think Saddam Hussein, Hafez Assad, Bashar Assad are among the ones that have the longest period of presidential. Vladimir Putin is doing the same now.
And the Chinese Communist Party Secretary General, Xi Jinping, is on his way to be a life-time president of China.
What about Mugabe? Or the previous Chinese president or the Kims in Nth Korea.
I think, Robert Mugabe was among them. Then, we currently have Uganda’s dictator Yoweri Museveni.
Yes Robert Mugabe must be among them, including Vladimir Putin in Russia. Saddam Hussein and Bashar Assad are in the group too. They were or are dictators.
The longest serving President in the world is Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo. He is the 2nd president of Equatorial Guinea who served as president for 42 years.
Actually, Paul Biya has been the leader of Cameroon longer than Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, he assume leadership for 45 years. However, of the 45 years in power, he acted as Prime Minister for 7 years (1995-1982), and then as a President from 1982 until now (38 years).
Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, of Equatorial Guinea, is the longest serving president.
Teodoro Obiang of Equatorial Guinea is the longest serving president in the world.
Yes You people are absolutely right. The second president of equatorial Guinea is the longest serving president in the world. Then we have Paul Biya who is still serving, Robert Mugabe did a little bit too. This shows that Africa’s president used to confix the power.
Paul Biya from Cameroon is the longest serving president. He has served as president for 45 years and 119 days
Probably the China communist president is on the way for life time presidency. We dictators come on Power they don’t leave willingly. Most African governments and presidents are dictators. The worst thing is they don’t anything for their population.
The Second president of equatorial Guinea is the longest serving president. Teodoro Obiang
Teodoro Obiang of Equatorial Guinea is the longest serving president
I would call him Paul Biya, the President of Cameroon who has ruled since 1975, although he was at first a Prime Minister, and latter changed to become the President. Then number two is Teodoro Obiang of Equatorial Guinea, who has ruled since 1979.
Teodoro Obiang of Equatorial Guinea is technically the longest serving president of all time.
The Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie in Africa ruled for 44 years in power.He was removed from power in 1974 and Mohammad Ghadafi of Libya ruled for almost 42 years until when he was killed in 2011.
