It is a sweet understatement to say that the vice is tightening around the current Prime Minister of the transition, Choguel Kokalla Maïga, who appears today as a man, hunted down from all sides, increasingly neglected, including in his own entrails, and who no longer seems to hold his chair by a thread that can break at any moment.
Choguel Kokalla Maïga, Prime Minister of the transition, is no longer this man adored at the beginning of his taking office at the head of the Central Executive, who made the bamboola with a public won over to his cause, especially when he sang at will the promises of a “governance of rupture”.
This idyllic moment, when the man passed himself off as the tenor of a renewal for the country and where he had citizenship, is over. And for good reason ? Choguel Kokalla Maïga is currently at the bottom of the wave, jostled as he is by many national actors, starting with his own comrades from the good old days of popular protest on the Boulevard de l’Indépendance, who do not see him today that disaster and bankruptcy are at the heart of public affairs.
Political remonstrances are multiplying and accumulating against him: after recently the charge of the Untm, yet determined support of the transition, which sent him a strong reply, following serious breaches in the respect of broken promises, c t is now Adema, another weighty ally of the transition, which came out of its reserves to outright demand the resignation of this man from the Primature.
In the same vein, the framework of political parties and the grouping of political parties for a successful transition had sounded the sling on the Prime Minister, asking him to leave office for having trapped himself in a Republican denial of his own. charged in the performance of his duties.
In fact, from the height of his primatorial prerogatives, Choguel Kokalla Maïga, as usual, did not hesitate to meet a fringe of national political actors, labeled as his declared political supporters, enjoining them to put themselves in battle order in order to win the next political contests which are fast approaching in the country.
In a democratic country like ours, such partisan work and highly suspected of collusion on the part of a Prime Minister in the service of the public interest, and therefore completely unsuspected of political nepotism, is not a trivial political game.
The supporters of the man may cry out in vain to defend their champion, on the pretext that no law of the Republic prohibits him from expressing his political choices, it is clear that the Prime Minister, once he has met supporters in a most official framework at the level of the Prime Minister, this high place of central power, for a specifically private agenda, was guilty of republican denial. An unforgivable political fault in a democratic context.
Here then, in the eyes of many national actors, the current Prime Minister has lost all republican credibility to continue to assume the high official offices which confer on him the primatorial seat, synonymous with righteousness, both moral and intellectual, vis-à-vis vis-a-vis the citizens of the country, independently of the ideological and sociological division.
As a result, it is said, he must pay the political consequences. This is why at this very tense moment for him, the Prime Minister of the transition is the subject of strong criticism; some as sharp as the others, now asking him to leave his chair, because no longer having the formal legality, given his political acquaintances assumed towards his own supporters, to conduct public action to the great benefit of Malians .
As we know, the man was at the heart of a lively controversy among his own comrades in the popular protest of the Boulevard de l’Indépendance, where more firm voices, and not the least, were heard saying that he had already disqualified himself from acting as the spokesperson for the protest movement, opting for cleavage to remove, it is said, the obstacles to going around in circles.
Most of the tenors of the M5-RFP had simply distanced themselves from Prime Minister Choguel Maïga, with whom they never intended to continue any political collaboration. On the grounds that he had striven to divide the M5-RFP and to carry out a political purge which did not say his name.
Clearly, political hostilities are not weakening against Prime Minister Choguel Kokalla Maïga, who today is an isolated man, in the true sense of the term, and who increasingly sees his room for maneuver reduce considerably.
These calls for resignation, more and more numerous and resounding, and which take on pungent proportions, because they far exceed the environment of his natural political detractors, will they end up weakening him with Colonel Assimi Goïta, alone whether or not to grant a reprieve?
We will know soon….
