Coup in Mali.  The army arrested the president

According to Reuters, President Pa Ndu, Prime Minister Mukhtar Awani and Defense Minister Suleiman Doukuri were transferred to a military base in Kati near the capital, Bamako.

On Monday, the United Nations Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) called for the “immediate and unconditional” release of the president and the prime minister. A post on Twitter stressed that “those who hold the country’s leaders accountable for their actions.”

2020 coup in Mali

In Mali, there was already a coup in August 2020. The army led by Colonel Asimi Guetta arrested President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and Prime Minister Bobo Sisi, and tanks appeared on the streets. Several hours later, Keita resigned, saying he did not want to cause bloodletting. The 2020 coup was preceded by mass protests by Mali’s residents dissatisfied with corruption, the poor economic situation, and the government’s handling of the pandemic.

After the coup, the military announced an 18-month transition period, followed by a return to civilian rule. In September 2020, Ba Ndu, an aviation officer and former Minister of Defense of Mali, became the interim president.

Ndaou gained the support of some of the organizations that led the protests that led to Keita’s removal from power. The Interim President announced the fight against corruption and electoral fraud and pledged to abide by previous international agreements.

The arrest of Ndaw and his candidate, Prime Minister Uani, on Monday came shortly after they announced the change of government that in 2020 ousted the coup leaders from power.
