"Bah N'Daw resigned from all his responsibilities, " announced Baba Cisse, special advisor to Vice President Assimi Goita, who was the leader of the National Committee for the Salvation of the People (CNSP), which overthrew President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita in August 2020.
Cisse justified the arrest of N'Daw and Ouane by "deep differences both on the form and substance concerning the course of the transition."
"After the resignation of the transitional president and his prime minister, the detainees will regain their freedom. This will be done gradually for obvious security reasons," the special advisor said.
This is the French hypocrisy. They blessed and supported the coup in Chad and forced the AU to accept. On other hand they are going crazy condemning the coup in Mali. 1+1=2 coup is a coup. There is no good coup and bad coup. Africans are just fed up with the French hypocrisy. pic.twitter.com/xKpxuI9hWw
Goita would have announced his decision to lead the transition from now on with a prime minister proposed by the June 5 Movement & Mali Patriotic Forces Rally (M5-RFP), a political force backing the large demonstration that eventually led to the mutiny last year.
N'Daw and Ouane were taken by force to the Kati military camp following the transitional president's announcement on Monday of his appointment of members of the government on the proposal of the prime minister.
Influential members of the dissolved National Committee for the CNSP were not in the new government, which was thought to be the main reason for the president and prime minister's detentions.
