Mali coup d’état receives international repudiation

The military who seized power in Mali and forced President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita to resign said yesterday that they want a “civil political transition” that will lead to general elections within a “reasonable time”

“We, the patriotic forces grouped in the National Committee for the Salvation of the People (CNSP), have decided to assume our responsibilities to the people and to history,” said the military spokesman and deputy chief of staff of the Force. Aérea, Colonel Ismaël Wagué, in a statement issued at 3:40 am (4:40 am in Luanda) on public television, ORTM, quotes Lusa.

“Our country sinks day after day into chaos, anarchy and insecurity, due to the fault of the men in charge of its destiny”, accused the official, denouncing “political clientelism” and “the family management of State affairs”.
