Guinea’s exiled leader is appealing for peace and reconciliation after he agreed on Friday to resign and remain in exile following a December assassination attempt.
Capt. Moussa “Dadis” Camara urged Guineans on Sunday to reconcile and show tolerance. He says he was under no pressure to choose Gen. Sekouba Konate, who has been both his archrival and closest ally, as the interim leader.
The breakthrough deal, mediated in Burkina Faso by that country’s President Blaise Compaore, is being hailed as a second chance for Guinea’s 10 million people who lived in terror during the last few months of Camara’s rule. In September, his presidential guard massacred at least 156 people at a demonstration calling for a return to civilian rule.
