On October 19, Albert Damantang Camara said that they have credible information which, indicate that Guinea-Bissau has introduced weapons in the country. When asked about the seriousness of the accusations, he assured that he is sure of his allegations, because, according to the minister, there is evident evidence.
Guinean political analyst and connoisseur of subregional geopolitics, Rui Landim said he has no doubt that Guinea Conakry will take the accusations seriously and one of the signs of this determination is the possibility of an international inquiry into the matter.
Landim avoids commenting whether Guinea-Bissau introduced weapons in the neighboring country or not, but considers that the Guinean authorities diplomatically made a “very serious mistake” when the President of the Republic publicly assumed the existence of a dispute with a friendly country , only based on extra-political motives.
“It was an unforgivable failure. Umaro Sissoco Embaló could never take the position she took when she practically confronted President Condé at one of the ECOWAS summits. It was a bad omen and will undermine relations between the two countries, ”he said.
On Albert Camara’s accusations, Rui Landim preferred to analyze the “seriousness” with which the minister spoke, making clear the determination to take the case to the end. “When he said they were in possession of information that showed that the weapons used in Samoreya (Kindia) to attack the barracks of special forces, even killing Commander Mamady Condé, came from Guinea-Bissau, a journalist said that they were accusations serious, he replied that he was aware of the seriousness, but the facts he had through the security and information services were proof. So here we are just faced with a matter of time. Guinea Conakry’s political leaders will soon do something to prove the allegations they have made. And I believe that this will involve asking for an international inquiry into the introduction of weapons and interference in the political affairs of that country, ”said the analyst.
A possible interference by Guinea-Bissau in the internal affairs of Guinea Conakry is possible, according to the same analyst. Rui Landim considers that the current President of Guinea-Bissau “easily fell into a trap set up by Macky Sall, President of Senegal against certain countries, motivated by merely ethnic feelings”.
“It needs to be said clearly. This attempt to praise an ethnic group for leadership is bad. They succeeded in some countries, because people were slow to warn, but they are just setting up a revolt. It is a quartet that must stop installing this disorder in the sub-region. Macky Sall, Muhammadu Buhari, Mahamadou Issoufou and Adama Barrow. Our self-proclaimed president was put on that same list and they want to do the same thing in Guinea Conakry with Cellou Dalein Diallo. They did it in Gambia and Guinea-Bissau, but in Guinea Conakry they won’t do it because they warned themselves in time ”, defended Rui Landim.
Official silence in Guinea-Bissau
Meanwhile in Guinea-Bissau there is total silence about the accusations coming from the neighboring country. However, the detention of soldiers and citizens of Guinea-Bissau who presumably transported arms to Guinea Conakry is commented.
On the day that Guinea’s security minister Conakry made the accusations, Umaro Sissoco Embaló made a public appearance but did not mention the matter.
Albert Damantang Camará’s accusations were made two days after Umaro Sissoco Embaló returned from a “private visit” to Senegal, although he mentioned the press on his return to Bissau that he had made some gains for the country.
This Wednesday 20 October, the Guinean Head of State made a “solidarity visit” to all paramilitary units in the country, and promised uniforms and training to the personnel of all military units, as well as asking them to guarantee security to citizens as they do so with the Head of State himself.
On these visits and despite having spoken to the press, Sissoco Embaló made no mention of the elections in Guinea Conakry. This Friday 21st of October, Umaro sisoco received for a few hours in Bissau, the President of The Gambia Adama Barrow.
