He did not want to return home. But at the request of the highest Guinean authorities, in particular on the orders of Mamady Doumbouya, the deposed former Guinean president Alpha Condé, who had been treated in Abu Dhabi since January, returned to Conakry on Friday April 8.
He left Guinea on January 17 to seek treatment in the United Arab Emirates.
This stay, which was initially to last a month, subject to medical advice to the contrary, had been extended by several weeks.
The return of the former president, overthrown by Colonel Mamadi Doumbouya on September 5, puts an end to the rumors that have been circulating in recent weeks in Guinea, according to which the health reasons given for letting Alpha Condé go were only a alibi to allow him to begin a golden exile abroad.
