Safety of Guinea Citizens Will Be Ensured Following Coup, Rebels Say
On Sunday, a group of Guinean military, led by Doumbouya, stormed the presidential palace and detained President Alpha Conde. Doumbouya declared the country's parliament dissolved and constitution void, imposing a nationwide curfew.
Conde, 83, has been ruling the country since 2010. In March 2020, the referendum adopted constitutional amendments allowing Conde to remain in office for two more terms. The opposition boycotted the referendum, with over 40 people killed in rallies against the constitutional amendments. In July, a bill was issued increasing Conde’s salary, which also sparked public outcry amid the general poverty in Guinea.
