Mali Junta Insists On 3 Years Military Rule

Days after ousting Malian elected President, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, the Junta has insisted on a Military rule in the country for three years.

“The junta has affirmed that it wants a three-year transition to review the foundations of the Malian state. This transition will be directed by a body led by a soldier, who will also be head of state.

“The government will also be predominantly composed of soldiers” under the junta’s proposal, AFP quoted a source in a visiting West African delegation to have said on Sunday.

AFP reports that the source stated the junta has agreed to “free President Keita”, who has been detained alongside other senior officials since the coup on Tuesday, and he “will be able to return to his home” in Bamako.

“And if he wants to travel abroad for treatment, that is not a problem.”
