In an interview with AFP, Charles Blé Goudé, former leader of the Ivorian Young Patriots said: “I am not a candidate for anything in 2020 (…) I want to return (in Côte d’Ivoire) to participate in peace and the reconstruction of my country, to reconciliation “.
Blé Goudé also says that “President Gbagbo must return to Côte d’Ivoire. His return could be a saving for social peace in Côte d’Ivoire. He is a rallyer, I think he still has a role to play in Côte d’Ivoire. “
Recall that Charles Blé Goudé and Laurent Gbagbo, the former Ivorian president, also accused of crimes against humanity before being acquitted, were released conditionally on 1 February 2019.
