Guinea’s Ousted President, Alpha Condé, In Good Health, Says ECOWAS


African regional body ECOWAS has said that the ousted Guinean president, Alpha Condé is in good health in detention.

Its envoys visited Mr. Condé, who was detained in a military coup in Guinea last Sunday.

They also met the leaders of the coup, including its figurehead Lieutenant Colonel Mamady Doumbouya.

“President Alpha Condé is well,” Ecowas President Jean-Claude Kassi Brou said after meeting the 83-year-old in the coup leaders’ headquarters.

Both Ecowas and the African Union have suspended Guinea, calling for a return to constitutional order and for Mr. Condé to be freed.

They accused Mr. Condé of rampant corruption and human rights abuses.

He became increasingly unpopular after he changed the constitution so he could stand for a third term as president.
