Guinea Update 9-26: After the RPG Thugs, Here Come the Prevaricators, Provocateurs and Occupiers
September 26, 2013
WELCOME TO CONAKRY: THIS IS NOT WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!
It is clear that everything unfolding in Guinea now was planned a long time ago. It’s a well-oiled machine. As you will see from the highlights below the government is busy propagating a pretend coup, using ominous and threatening language against the UFDG, an opposition party that Alpha Conde has treated like an enemy of the state for three years. We know that when the government speaks of the UFDG, this is code for Peuls. False accusations are being made against “coup” collaborators, but the most concerning of all may be the security services’ “cordoning” of all of Ratoma — tantamount to an occupation.
Stay tuned . . .
