There was an unverified video that made rounds on social media showing the president of Guinea in the hands of soldiers.
The soldiers said they had staged a coup following hours of heavy gunfire near the presidential palace in the capital, Conakry.
Currently, the fate of Guinea president is unclear. However, Guinea’s Defence ministry on Sunday said in an official press release saying “the Presidential Guard, supported by the defense and security forces, contained the threat and pushed back the group of insurgents.”
Meanwhile, Rubongoya says Conde is simply reaping what he sowed. Apparently he has been carrying out unnecessary arrests and not paying attention to people’s cries.
“The people of Guinea took to the streets to protest against the illegal amendments. Dozens of Guineans were killed by security forces in the violent protests. Later, two opposition leaders were sentenced each to one year in jail for leading the protests,”
However, his query is why dictators never learn from such events so that they change.
“Unfortunately, no dictator ever learns from the fate of those before him. Each one of them always assumes they are very wise until it is too late. Unfortunately, it is the nations which often become victims of their indecency, decadence and intransigence,” he said.
