Press Release
WASHINGTON - Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, issued the following statement:

“I am concerned by media reports of unrest in Conakry that allegedly involve soldiers detaining President Condé, dissolving the cabinet and constitution, and closing Guinea’s borders. I know many citizens in the country were and remain frustrated with the current regime but this is not the way to a true democracy. Detaining the President and dissolving the government is not a long-term solution to solving the country’s most pressing problem of systemic poverty.”
