The Struggle in Burkina Faso

On the last day of September, Burkina Faso military leader President Paul-Henri Damiba was deposed in the country’s second coup in a year, as army Captain Ibrahim Traore took charge of the restive West African nation.

The coup was welcomed by many in the streets of the country’s capital Ouagadougou. We are focusing on the recent coup in Burkina Faso which came amid an upsurge of terrorist attacks. The people of Burkina Faso, just like many in neighboring West African countries, believe that former colonial power France is responsible for the current insecurity across the region.

Our expert will be giving us his take on the reasons for the coup in Burkina Faso. The second part of our program will be on condescending remarks by United States climate envoy John Kerry who is demanding that African countries should not invest in long-term gas projects.
