ECOWAS Delegation in Burkina Faso

A team from the West African regional bloc ECOWAS is currently in Burkina Faso’s capital, Ouagadougou, to hold talks with junta leader Lt Col Paul-Henri Damiba. The UN’s office for West Africa and the Sahel head Mahamat Saleh Annadif is also set to join the mission.

The talks have been necessitated by the political instability that has rocked the West African and resulted in the toppling of democratically elected President Roch Kabore. The Junta announced last week that they had taken over the rulership of the country from Kabore’s government. This resulted in the arrest of Kabore and other senior government officials in the capital Ouagadougou.
