According to the members of the grin, the pace at which the transition is going is sufficient proof that she has no intention of leaving power. She won’t bend. According to the grin, these soldiers are convinced of having the support of the Malian people and that their decisions are guided by their aspirations. Indeed, it should be recalled that the transition was urged by the international community to establish a roadmap and a transition timetable, with elections on a date agreed with ECOWAS, and well before 2025. It was also asked to stop using Russian mercenaries and to work with the international community to develop a sustainable approach to security.
However, in the eyes of the members, the reverse of the transition has overtaken this international community. ” Never has an African government been as skilful in dealing with Westerners as the Malian transition. She first imposed respect, chased the Barkhane force to make way for Russian mercenaries, chased the French ambassador from Mali. She also reframed Minusma and made ECOWAS bend”they say.
At the grin they are all unanimous that the Malian transition believes itself stronger than ever today and is not afraid of anyone to impose its will. Moreover, some members of the grin think that the colonels have taken a path of no return and they are condemned to go all the way. The latter claim that Assimi and his men have made enemies by imprisoning and chasing many executives from the country. ” They have no interest in the situation slipping away from them, otherwise it would be everyone’s turn at the hairdresser’s.warns the grin.
