Powerful African Military Junta Dissolves Government, Freezes Bank Accounts

Guinea’s ruling military regime announced today that it has disbanded its own cabinet, leaving former members without portfolios amidst mounting pressure for transparency and accountability.

As per the directive issued by the Presidency’s Secretary General, Brigadier General Amara Camara, key figures are required to relinquish both personal assets such as passports and cars while facing financial restrictions due to frosted banking activities.

These measures come after nearly two years since Colonel Mamady Doumbouya ousted democratically elected president Alpha Conde during a tumultuous takeover in September 2021. Despite initial agreements between the junta and Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), including plans for national polls within ten months under a proposed 24-month transition phase, tensions continue escalating across various sectors.

With neighboring nations experiencing similar upheavals – notably Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, and Gabon – concerns about democracy and governance loom large throughout Africa’s western region. Regional bodies like ECOWAS alongside global organizations such as the United Nations remain watchfully engaged regarding these developments.
