Burkina Faso -Following the resignation of Christophe Dabire, the government of Burkina Faso has announced the selection of a new prime minister. Lassina Zerbo, the former head of a top nuclear watchdog, has been appointed as the country’s next leader. President Kabore, who is facing an increasing threat from Islamic terrorists, has pleaded for assistance from all quarters.
Our defense and security forces, as well as our volunteers for the defense of the country, need our help. This is why I am asking all of our country’s boys and daughters to assist in the war effort in whatever way they can. Our government will be given the appropriate instructions for establishing a framework for collecting contributions and managing them in a transparent manner, “the President pleaded.
Around 2,000 individuals have died as a result of the six-year-long violent campaign, which has also driven 1.4 million people to flee their homes. In the face of this justifiable outrage over the high human toll of terrorism, and in light of a large number of internally displaced people, I urge the people of Burkina Faso to be clear about who their foe or enemy is. As the supreme commander of the armed forces, I will never waiver in our shared determination to destroy the forces of evil that exploit our land to perpetrate the most heinous activities and crimes, “President Kabore promised.
At least 13 Burkina Faso defense volunteers were killed in an attack in the country’s north on Thursday, according to AFP. The violent violence peaked on November 14, when 57 people were slain in the country’s north, 53 of whom were police officers.
