It’s a yellow cloud of overstretched motorcyclists forward of the top of state, white-hot by the Kankan solar. A harmful hunt adopted with the presidential procession. Navy autos, congested minibuses and scooters collide to be the primary to enter the stadium.
Alpha Condé wearing white receives the keys to town. “Younger individuals have been manipulated for private pursuits,” he says, little question referring to latest protests in opposition to energy outages. Earlier than repeating: “there are solely two candidates for this election”, in keeping with him.
Most companies are closed, town has skilled violent clashes in latest days between supporters of energy and the opposition. Alpha Condé requires unification.
The reception is hysterical on his arrival within the metropolis of Siguiri, the gold-bearing metropolis near the Malian border, which its activists confer with because the “capital of RPG”. The top of state overwhelmed by the gang may have a tough time getting out of his automobile to succeed in the stage.
Ousmane Kaba condemns issues within the countryside
Alpha Condé was due to this fact in Kankan on Tuesday. A metropolis from which one other candidate, Ousmane Kaba, comes. A former director of RPG, handed on to the opposition. This economist, a number of instances minister, is chairman of Pades, the Democratic Social gathering of Hope. He targeted his marketing campaign on a number of themes: nationwide unity, infrastructure, electrification, or the issue of entry to water.
If Ousmane Kaba makes positive that his candidacy arouses enthusiasm, he however regrets the issues and regrets that Cellou Dallein Diallo couldn’t get to Kankan on Sunday, his procession has been blocked by supporters of Alpha Condé.
The truth that one of many candidates was banned from touring to Kankan is a really dangerous factor that we condemn. All candidates will need to have the liberty to cross all the territory of Guinea, that’s democracy.
