Congo: Incumbent President Denis Sassou N’Guesso to be inaugurated in Brazzaville April 16



The inauguration of the re-elected incumbent Denis Sassou N’Guesso will be held in Brazzaville April 16. The ceremony will be held at the Palais des Congres, and road closures are likely in the vicinity of this facility ahead of and during the inauguration. The US Embassy in the capital has issued a message highlighting possible disruptions. US government personnel have been advised to avoid major routes through the city, including in the vicinity of the embassy, the city center, and the Maya Maya International Airport (BZV), due to the possibility of transport disruptions. Several African leaders and other dignitaries will attend the event.

Security personnel are likely to set up roadblocks and identity checks around sensitive sites and hotels in Brazzaville. Authorities could also increase security measures near government buildings and foreign embassies. Traffic disruptions are likely in areas where heightened security measures are enforced, including on roads to and from BZV as dignitaries arrive. Security personnel are also likely to close roads temporarily to prioritize official motorcade movements.


If operating in Brazzaville, exercise increased vigilance through April 16. Keep away from areas where security personnel appear to be deploying. Monitor trusted local news sources for developments. Heed all instructions from security personnel and allow additional travel time near gatherings.
