No exile for detained former President Alpha Conde: Guinea

GUINEAS’s military government says there will be no exile for detained former president Alpha Conde, adding that transition towards civilian rule will be done in accordance with the will of the people.

The statement from the ruling council came in defiance of international pressure for authorities to release and a six-month timetable for elections after a coup on the 5th of this month sparked global condemnation.

It also followed the visit of an ECOWAS mission led by two heads of state from the 15-member West African bloc on Friday.

Colonel Mamady Doumbouya who led the coup told the visiting delegation that it was important for ECOWAS to listen to the legitimate aspirations of the people of Guinea.
