8:38 pm

8:39 pm
from other people, so there is a ready when the no, no get in question we are one year ago we sent again a constraint but didn't use my body to be so when you realize that he was going to we side run by can be decided to pass to the next page and make the go. so is the brands are for we don't like him to the money and get a surprise to you know, they have no money to you again. ok, quincy, this seems to be an act of betrayal. i'm a guy has been saying, but it seems that mother don't boy, the qu, leader is taking advantage of the growing feminine simmering discontent in
8:40 pm
guinea where i think i agree with them, but it's not just about the going discontent. it's also a reflection of the disrespect for established rules and cbs relating to command and control related to promotion relating to training. but the quality importantly defense of security force assistance from those who have supported the gimme and government. and again, the military type. i think i'll talk on the end, his government also by load the demographics that says or frustration that says screws in a sense or victim hoard and a sense of disposition. so if you listen to the narrative come in from my mom, you know, moving away from this, you know, politics of christian in
8:41 pm
a new system in which everybody gets involved. as i have said, he's pumping into their way into public disaffection. that the people are hostile to buy long term, particularly with respect to his successful attempt at tweaking that wants to she and and for him to illegal is the ok. and this is terribly unfortunate. it's painful, but it's just not who leased surprising. it also to please us a little dream. most of the time is a dignified exit. but does that does not seem to be the case with alpha county. we saw the pictures of him being tied the shovel surrounded by officers and taken into custody. is he to blame for what, what happened yesterday? well, i would certainly argue that he bad responsibility for the unfortunate development
8:42 pm
we've seen in the past 5 years, which is a growing move towards as you said in the introduction, more storage area and need to ship style. the constitutional amendments last year suddenly was, was a step in that direction. so of our conduct been signaling that he would be continuing on to power, not just by grabbing him in office, but also by centralizing power around the presidency. so in that sense, i would definitely say that he has a large part of the blame and you can see why the beginning people would be frustrated with that development. other than what is fascinating about getting is that most of the time, a soldier, a dictator, would either live from call the constitution for political gains. but this is an activist, an opposition leader who understands the very complex political landscape in the west african in west africa. yet he decided last year
8:43 pm
to trump or the same constitution just for him to stay empower indefinitely. what happened to alpha only convey is just become crazy. not the day i've known since 999 to 90 when he was a friend of us in 1st and in the africa when we will company for the repetition of . so last year i wrote a piece and i just thought you should leave. you should know that your time is gone . you should allow other support or takeover. don't bring your country, you should, you should, you should remember what happened to your close friends. was taken into your house in that room by me that that you for you. and this can happen to know what up and so on. is not the one renew rule fighting for democracy. if somebody will turn
8:44 pm
into cross seat or you will no longer waiting for both of them, you know, or to get in order for them or like a young boy who insisting that it will contain meant in, in, in both long as he could remain that you was willing to pay for you what surrounded by friends from even tony blair became, is economic advisor, converting let's say the mind in the beginning of human to manage and the likes of cushioning, form of friendship putting up in minutes but by doing web and then doing the just the election, but you didn't actually work because it was a victory of his men opponent, gentle dental dental. but they were the democratic crusader give him a jump despite the conditions under which he fitted to follow. but unfortunately,
8:45 pm
and i tried to talk to you when i met you at the african union 4 years ago when you what the president of the african union. but they literally wanted to read me physically because you just use it the dummy in my prison unit. you will see on the edge become a crazy person and i see a point in the went reality quickly out and you don't turn overnight from being a political lead on opposition leader into a dictator. don't you see other elements converging here like influence of international key players, particularly countries interested in the booming mining sector, whom i have advised him to stay in power to consider de their own financial gaze there. but i think that it's only possible by their primary challenge. it's what i
8:46 pm
have said that we didn't know him any more. this and it's certainly african center out, present africa and lead this community else who approved a narrative and, and discourse and the language of the rule of law. respectful human rights of practice trans tissues of free media and free elections only to hide and con people to get power when they do that. and i think has demonstrated this and several african leaders there wants to. so then get, it's turned out, forces are lead us to back them to provide the necessary tools of oppression. so that descent destroyed, people are med and people and then undermined stages 2 sheets. so for example, in giving and i think i have mentioned some names, these are people who will be able to perform and be in
8:47 pm
a similar manner in the countries. okay. but then the columbia gave investments, security for assistance in terms of training, meant setting up the military schools outside and then using these tools to press their own people. let me make this point and make it very clear. because i'm trying a mouse. and now gimme a signal has be sent both to the countries and west africa and not to the oppressed people that they can see power back on. fortunately, their military interventions are not the most useful most of the time. and it's supposed to be all right. yes, but what kind of message does the qu in gay send to the rest of the african content, particularly in, in west africa?
8:48 pm
does it increase the appetite of army officers to say, you know what, why don't we do the same thing? well, i think that has been a trend and it goes back at least 1015 years of a combination of 2 type 2 types of crisis. i think we should think of military coups as a symptom of another kind of crew which has been happening across not just west africa, but the continent and widely, which is the most constitutional crisis. you haven't come from the presence of changing the constitution as well in order to stay in power. and you have a general sort of lack of confidence in the electoral system in many parts of the continent. then i think these things go together, in the sense that there is more room for maneuver for military actors to them, claim a role in the political game, so to speak. i would also just want to say that i think the international community bad, the part of the responsibility as well. i think it's sort of striking how little consequences that i've been towards the qu macon in,
8:49 pm
especially in african countries of late. and i think the thing that the national community sending is that security is the top priority. as long as countries stay relatively stable on the surface. and both elected leaders and military accidents can get away with quite a lot of abusive power. without any real consequence, quasi awning, we had a sense about 2 or 3 or 4 years ago that the, the trend of military coups is starting to move downward in africa. and that this could perhaps osher in a new era of pluralism, democracy elections. now this does not seem to be the case anymore. we've seen the trend moving upwards. what i think the optimism of the mid 2000, the optimism of
8:50 pm
a much more you can see the more proceed transparency, rule of law, the respect for human rights. back to ms. m. has the beautiful. so we've got a group of individual. also i've used that narrative and directory of proceed missed. you get power an entry, and am i the same is true. she's by let me tag into what you want me to feel not going to mess now community to hold these lead, best responsible and accountable. so for example, i mean these, the states have signed on to a lot of instruments by a co and african union. but there has been an inability by dc institutions. plus there appears to hold you your friends accountable because gimme just did not happen. it was got well incremented out iraq
8:51 pm
soon as not freedoms are constitutional. right? and that's just by says, the combination of under my new use now burned by the deliberate much we, manipulation often shows an electron is to, she's kept in to the frustration that we are seeing. so desert the multiple levels of fear, but mystically best actually. okay. dennis mfc dash, 3, lot of these fearless are not dealt with. we will see at least 2 or 3 more to the task before the end of the year. yes. but what do you think should be next for the african union? they, the african unit itself had a goal about, about silence in the guns put in and to the culture of military coups will be able to put more pressure on the military. john,
8:52 pm
turn now in canada very well. i think that what we've seen in similar cases, so for example, in the case of modern more recently is that there's only so much you can gain from isolating minnesota regime. i think that's the way for what is definitely through dialogue. and i do think that the african union has a fairly good track record of encouraging dialogue with all in both parties. and i think that must be the road ahead here as well. so rather than threatening sanctions, a nice a nation only. i think, you know, the african needs to be very proactive. now i am sending a delegation gimme involving both the military and wanted to call parties in a, in a broad base dialogue in order to ensure a transition that hopefully will have civilian need. or eventually, i think that should also be part of the goal here is to take the military as much out of the equation as possible. as soon as possible. quest,
8:53 pm
the ways trying most of the time to stay away from drawing general conclusions about what is happening in parts of the african continent. but don't you get a sense that military coups are endemic to the continence? is the independence of most of the african countries. we've seen somehow 200 military coups. this is normal. no start. and i think the case of guy, man, authentic out of south africa, about swanner, of my media of care are trying to demonstrate that with strong civil societies. with good leadership, increasingly embedded political process. and by shared values and shared norms that we can be shipped societies away from and debit military them built in democratic is due to she's and processes added to bob's that can be rebels
8:54 pm
and they've been, the missile just for situation starts out. and some ago they are okay shoes, where the conversation become fairly, turn descend ascendance. you know, when demonstrations do, do take place. their route control measures can be quite tough. but about the less sophisticated side, the leadership and in the role of the media we can begin to see got was shipped to once you see that logic process. and when double classes begin to in which you've been doing the kind of situations that says optimism in that as we continue to dial the head of the coast to new to me. here is a concern. i'm going to go to yes. in the pass code were built against the backdrop
8:55 pm
of a previous ministry, who so it was an army officer batting against his boss. now you have something different, which is a military coup against established democracy for at least one decade or 2 decades . and when you look at the west africa, you're seeing this path in which is basically military officers taking over in places like molly and you see what happens in body. you have now a new case, a chart, and then you have the failed. coo, inger, and you get a sense that there's something wrong about that part of africa. well, this is a part of africa that is struggling in terms of, of the comic development as well in terms of quite a lot of measures of human development more broadly. so you can see that these are states under pressure and in many ways that are not just about the weighted state of ministration is structured. but i think that that what one lesson that i do from,
8:56 pm
from the development in money is that even on the civilian whole, the military is never far away. the military is always close to power. and that is a problem. the problem is that it is too easy for different segments of the military establishment to sort of decide on their own initiative to draw a line and conduct the crew so, so there's definitely need for some form of reform in many of the military structures. i'm sure that chris is much more sort of knowledgeable about these things that i am, but i think there is a problem with the military being too close to power. and then i also think that that even in countries that are not in the midst of this kind of kind of upheaval, we need to have more sort of committed conversations to what is happening with constitutional democracy. because it does seem that there is about a wrong election, even in stable countries. we've seen it in kenya for example,
8:57 pm
that you do have widespread accusations of fraud. you have process, you have violence. so i think there is a deeper conversation to be have to be had about the roots of the constitutional democracy. but also of removing the military from you in a circle. the power will have to leave it. that gentleman. yes. the nathan quincy, unfortunately, will not contact with a dumber guy a while ago because of technical problems looking forward to having you in the near future from walk invitation about different events unfolding in the african continent. and thank you for watching. you can see the program again anytime by visiting our website and dot com for further discussion, go to our facebook page that facebook dot com forward slash a james i story. you can also join the conversation on twitter. i'll 100 is a james nicely for me. how about and the entire team here in the bye for now
