Mamady Doumbouya, the leader of the recent coup in Guinea that ousted former president, Alpha Conde from power, has issued a series of ultimatums to mining companies that are operating in the country.
According to the coup leader who now heads the country, all mining companies operating within the borders of Guinea were to abide by the following,
- Process bauxite locally in Guinea
- Build factories in Guinea
- Prioritize Guinea citizens when employing people
These terms look like Mamady Doumbouya is trying to create some employment opportunities for the people of Guinea.
In other news, ECOWAS chairman and president of Ghana, Nana Akuffo Addo, has also visited Guinea to deliberate with Mamady Dounmbouya over the fate of the deposed president, Alpha Conde. It is unclear at the moment what the new military government plans to do to the former president.
Alpha Conde was allegedly ousted from power after he tempered with the Guinea constitution to allow him to stand for president for a third term.
