The newly sworn in military ruler of Guinea, Col Mamady Doumbouya, has appointed a former civil servant Mohamed Beavogui as the country’s new prime minister.
Mr Beavogui is expected to oversee transition to civilian rule following September’s overthrow of then President Alpha Condé.
Aged 68, Mr Beavogui, is an expert in agricultural finance. MR Beavogui appointment was announced in a decree read on public television on Wednesday, October 6, 2021.
Reports by news agencies monitored by African Entertainment revealed that the new Prime Minister is a relative of Diallo Tellia – a former Guinean diplomat who served as the first secretary-general of the Organisation of African Unity.
The coup leader, sworn in on Friday as interim President, is barred from contesting in future elections.
