GUINEEPRESSE.info is reporting that Pres. Konate summoned CENI president, Gen. Sangare to the presidential palace at 1 am this morning. When Sangare arrived, he met with Konate in a room packed with Guinean military soldiers. Konate told Sangare to declare Conde the winner, Sangare refused, and Konate banned him from holding a press conference today to provide results.
From the beginning, Konate’s mission as president has been to deliver the presidency to the candidate supported by the overwhelming majority of Malinkes — Alpha Conde. If he is unsuccessful, he will be in great danger of reprisal from his own people and it’s being reported he could take a plane out of Guinea to Morocco if things get hot.
Stay tuned and tighten the seat belt!
