A group of soldiers seized power in Guinea last Sunday after overthrowing President Alpha Conde, who was serving a third term after altering the constitution to allow him to do so. The Guinean opposition had denounced the move. The coup has been viewed positively among opposition leaders and a large portion of the population who considered Conder as a usurper. Regional leaders are set to meet on Wednesday to discuss the situation.

The US, France and other stakeholders have condemned the coup headed by a Mamady Doumbouya, former officer in the French Legion.

Guinea is one of the world’s poorest countries. More than 60% of the population live below the poverty level. Corruption and political stagnation are the main causes for this deplorable situation.
