    Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso – (African Boulevard News) – Supporters of the detained former chief of staff to the President, Captain Traoré, marched on Tuesday in the streets of Burkina Faso’s capital, Ouagadougou. The demonstration was organized by the Collective for the Protection of Democracy in Burkina (CPDB), a group formed in defense of Captain Traoré, who has been imprisoned since May 2021 after an alleged coup attempt.

    The demonstrators voiced their support for Captain Traoré, chanting his name and carrying posters calling for his release. They argued that he is an innocent man caught up in a political power struggle, and that his incarceration is a violation of his human rights.

    Thursday, during a live television interview, Captain Traoré denounced the actions of a coalition against Burkina Faso, claiming to have turned to “strategic allies” such as Russia and Turkey. This statement has stirred controversy in the country and has been widely discussed on social media.

    In an interview with African Boulevard News, Dr. Ahmed Moustapha, a political analyst, expressed his concern over the impact of Captain Traoré’s statement on Burkina Faso’s international relationships. He notes that Burkina Faso already faces significant challenges related to security and development, and that any further destabilization could have dire consequences.

    Meanwhile, the CPDB maintains that Captain Traoré’s arrest is politically motivated and that he is being unfairly targeted by President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré’s government. They argue that Captain Traoré was simply serving his country diligently, and that his detention is a violation of his rights as a citizen.

    In conclusion, it is clear that Captain Traoré’s detention remains a contentious issue in Burkina Faso’s politics. While his supporters are rallying behind him, there are concerns about the potential destabilizing effects of his alleged links with foreign countries. It remains to be seen what the outcome of this case will be, and how it will impact Burkina Faso’s future.
