Guinea’s ousted leader Alpha Condé returns home

Ousted leader Alpha Condé

Guinea’s junta has announced that deposed president Alpha Condé was sent to his wife’s home in the capital Conakry on Monday, after holding him incommunicado for months. 83-year-old Condé led the country for nearly 11 years before being deposed in a military coup on the 5th of September.

In a statement broadcast on state TV, the junta said Condé was now home with his wife, Hadja Djene Kaba Condé, in the Conakry suburbs.

It was not specified whether Condé was under house arrest or if he faces other restrictions.

The junta, which calls itself the National Rally Committee for Development (CNRD), said it “will continue to provide the former head of state with treatment worthy of his rank, and this without any national or international pressure.”

The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) had imposed sanctions on individual coup leaders and demanded the “unconditional release” of Condé.
