Living up to 256 years: The dream of would-be Presidents for Life

According to the “Time” magazine, quoted by a D R Congo daily newspaper (La Référence Plus, No. 6320, dated September 28, 2015, pages 9 to 11) a Chinese man named Li Ching-Yuen or Li Ching-Yun, apparently born in 1677 or 1736, died on May 6, 1933.

True or not, this is a dream those who, anywhere in the world and – especially in Africa – seek a” President-for-life” position would like to see becoming reality. Certainly a nightmare for their people.  Fortunately Li Ching-Yuen or Yun, died a few decades ago… with his elixir of an almost eternal life.
