No Land Access to Conakry Port

The Kaloum district in Conakry (Guinea),
where the port, the presidential palace and parliament are situated, is under
tight security due to the imminent Presidential elections.


Budd’s Staff and surveyors have been unable to access
the port from this morning (16 October 2020).


Today, is the last day of the Presidential campaign
and Guinea is two days away from an election which many fear will end in
violence.  The legality of this third bid for office by the outgoing
President, Alpha Conde, is hotly disputed.


For safety reasons, Budd and Wiggins’ Guinea staff are
currently working from home.


Any email communication with Budd’s Conakry office
from today through Monday should be backed by telephone calls as there are
likely to be perturbations in communications:
