Guinea: Junta has Dissolved Government

Yesterday, 20 February 2024, a spokesman for Guinea’s President read out a decree on the state television channel announcing that the government had been dissolved.

All government ministers were instructed to hand over their passports and official vehicles.  Investigations into alleged embezzlement and corruption seem likely.

Guinea’s military junta came to power after overthrowing President Alpha Condé in 2021.  The country’s first post-coup elections are due to take place at the end of 2024. 

According to the press, land borders are to be closed from today.

Budd Guinea reports that there has not been any immediate impact on security in Conakry but access to internet is regularly restricted.
