Kati honors IBK in 2012 to dishonor him seven years later. What a sad end! In the end, they did not give Ibrahim Boubacar Kéïta the choice of the soldiers who took power in Mali by forcing him to resign. This was called for by a popular protest led by the Movement of 5 June/Rally of Patriotic Forces (M5/RFP). By Dioncounda Sissoko
Under the moral authority of Imam Mahmoud Dicko, political parties, associations and trade unions formed an anti-IBK front. Which described its governance as chaotic and based on an oligarchy.
After four major rallies, this movement had still not managed to obtain the resignation of President Ibrahim Boubacar Kéïta. But it would have had the merit of capturing and co-operating the energies of a large part of Malians.
For which, the relief of seeing the IBK regime go away, will come from a group of soldiers. Indeed, early in the morning of Tuesday 18 August, Bamako was already learning of the arrests of men of power and political figures.
What was the beginnings of a coup d’état will prove to be over the course of the day and will end on this evening of 18 August 2020 with this pathetic statement by President Ibrahim Boubacar Kéïta: “…For 7 years, I had the happiness and joy of trying to turn this country around, so that no blood could be shed for my continued business.
At this very moment, I would like to tell you my decision to leave my office, all my duties from that moment on and with all the legal consequences: the dissolution of the National Assembly and the dissolution of the government. May Allah help and bless Mali. I have no hatred for anyone. My love for my country does not allow me. May God save us. Thank you.”
Thus, Kati, the city-garrisons, formerly seat of the mutineers of 2012, led by a certain captain Amadou Haya Sanogo, whose support would have been decisive for the election of Ibrahim Boubacar Kéïta to the supreme judiciary. This same city withdrew its confidence in Ibrahim Boubacar Kéïta. As to end a lease (breach of lease) that they had sealed together. Kati honors IBK in 2012 to dishonor him seven years later. What a sad end!
