It's now official: Capt. #TraorĂ© is transition president in #BurkinaFaso, a direct result of the 'assises', an assembly of some 300 delegates, adopting tonight a new transition charter stating the head of ruling MPSR junta is also transition president. Why is this significant?đŸ§”
2/ First, while #Traoré's nomination was in recent days a foregone conclusion, it wasn't always so: since day 1 of the #BurkinaFaso coup, he had stressed the transition leader could be a civilian, and that he had no interest himself in ruling. So what has changed in the meantime?
3/ One interpretation is that it was always the plan. Another, that #Traoré realised he could easily be sidelined if he did not make himself president. Following the rebooted junta's 1st speech on state TV on 30 Sept, #Traoré faced pushback in streets of #Ouagadougou from ...

It’s now official: there is a #coup within a coup in #BurkinaFaso. Little is known about coup leader Ibrahim TraorĂ©. What we do know is that the coup came amid spiralling tensions within #MPSR. Here’s a look at the main points from tonight’s announcement and what led to this đŸ§”
1/ Damiba has been toppled by coup plotters who claim to belong to the #MPSR. Unclear at this stage where Damiba is. Sources mentioned earlier he had been arrested and negotiations revolved around the conditions of his departure from power
2/ Cpt. Ibrahim TraorĂ© is the new #MPSR president. He was named Chef d’Artillerie du DixiĂšme RĂ©giment de Commandement d’Appui et de Soutien by Damiba in March 2022, but little else is known about him at this stage

#Mutiny and clashes in #BurkinaFaso still underway. Are we seeing a #coup within a coup - if so who is behind it? Much is unclear, but the presidency announced earlier on social media it is negotiating with mutineers. How did we get here are what are they likely to talk about?đŸ§”
2/ In recent weeks, discontent📈within the army. Some see #Damiba as having become more of a politician than the military leader they were hoping for & see him as having failed to deliver on his security promises. 26 Sept convoy attack in #GaskindĂ© sparked further📈in frustration
3/ As security forces suffer recurring losses, the dynamic could be similar to Nov 2021, when the high death toll of the Inata attack against sec forces and the news that they were ill-equipped and supplied sparked anger and discontent in the ranks

đŸ‡§đŸ‡« À #Ouagadougou, Ă  l'universitĂ© Joseph Ki-Zerbo, confĂ©rence autour de la question : « Y a-t-il un avenir en commun pour la francophonie ? ».

Je veux plaider pour la francophonie, mais je veux le faire dans des termes nouveaux. Et avant de le faire, je veux dire depuis quel point de vue je parle : depuis celui de la France qui s'est toujours opposée au colonialisme et à l'impérialisme.

Nous avons face à nous le néolibéralisme. Il nous invite à nous poser la question de la souveraineté, notamment sur la question alimentaire. Et, avec elle, la question du protectionnisme solidaire.
