Unlike Robert Mugabe and Ibrahim Boubacar Keita who resigned after being overthrown, Guinean President Alpha Condé decided to die in power rather than abdicate after the coup.

According to exclusive information delivered by the Pan-African newspaper in its recent digital delivery, Alpha Condé still refuses to sign his letter of resignation as demanded by the junta led by Colonel Mamady Doumbouya, commander of the Special Forces unit.

While the ECOWAS mission, led by the foreign ministers of Togo, Ghana, Burkina Faso and Jean Claude Brou, chairman of the commission, was able to meet with him, President Alpha Condé detained in the office of the forces specials installed in a wing of the People’s Palace ”and more precisely in the suite where Lieutenant-Colonel Mamady Doumbouya previously lived“, refuses to sign his resignation.

“I’d rather be killed than sign my resignation,” he told the ECOWAS delegation.

According to Jeune Afrique, Alpha Condé has a bedroom, a living room and a bathroom. However, he does not have access to his phones. He cannot listen to the radio either.

As for television, he had it at his disposal until it was taken away.

The reason is quite simple: Alpha Condé “gets angry every time he sees Lieutenant-Colonel Doumbouya on the screen and it affects his state of health,” reveals the same source.

For the president of Guinea-Bissau who plans to go to Conakry, he condemns the coups d’état, but urges Alpha Condé to sign his resignation.
