You are currently viewing Leadership crisis within the RPM: How the Timbiné clan hopes to triumph without getting their hands dirty

After the death on January 16 of its founding president, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, the Rassemblement pour le Mali (RPM) is in the process of settling into a crisis leading to a summons to justice. And this even if the president of the young people of the Rpm and the ephemeral president of the National Assembly dissolved on August 18, 2020, Moussa Timbiné, refutes the idea of ​​a “war of succession”. For him, it is rather a question of action to put “Les Tisserands” back on their feet.

The death of President Ibrahim Boubacar Kéita seems to have plunged his party into a zone of turbulence. Indeed, the Rassemblement pour le Mali (RPM) is sinking deeper and deeper into a crisis of leadership which will result in a legal confrontation between the tendency led by the current president of the party, Dr Bocary Treta, and that led by the president of the national youth office, Moussa Timbiné. Denouncing several violations of the texts of the party, this last tendency was constituted in a movement called “Collective for the defense of the statutes and internal regulations of the Rpm(CDSRI-RPM) in order to attack the opposing camp in court. A legal battle, the first part of which was however won by Dr Tréta and his family at the level of the High Court of the commune II.

This crisis declared the day after the death of President IBK is perceived by observers as a war of succession or leadership within the party of “weavers“. But the president of the youth Rpm, Moussa Timbiné, rejects any idea of ​​war around the succession. For him, it is rather a question of rebuilding the party. “We have no other conviction than to put this party back on its feet. It is therefore neither a quarrel of leadership even less of succession“, defended Moussa Timbiné. This development, which does not however exclude a possible candidacy of the former president of the National Assembly for the presidency of the party, certainly aims to reassure undecided militants.

We will fight this fight until the end because we are not likely to give up anything along the wayhe said at a heated press conference on the matter. The CDSRI-Rpm wishes to see the end of the mandate of the National Political Bureau of the Rpm (BPN-Rpm) whose mandate expired on October 23, 2019, according to the collective. And if the first legal battle has been lost, the collective remains confident of its final victory on appeal in this case. Its officials say they have solid arguments and are fiercely determined to follow through. They are not in favor of a parochial war, but they are determined to lead the country. Otherwise win without getting your hands dirty.

For this first legal decision, the CDSRI-Rpm denounces a two-speed justice. “It’s a judgment that favored one side over the other“, lamented Me Baber Gano, secretary general of the BPN-Rpm who is leading this legal battle.
