Seasoned Journalist, Kwesi Pratt Jnr., has slammed ECOWAS leaders for not acting proactively to avert the coup d'état in Guinea.
President of Guinea, Alpha Condé changed the constitution of his country resulting in the current Military insurgence.
He was on Sunday, September 5, 2021 detained by soldiers led by a former French legionnaire, Lt Col Mamady Doumbouya.
The soldiers indicated they have dissolved the country's constitution that would have permitted President Condé to run for a third time after serving for 10 years.
Addressing the Guinean coup d'état, Mr. Pratt wondered why the ECOWAS leadership stood aloof and watched the President to amend the constitution when his tenure was over.
"When this man was terrorizing his citizens, infringing upon their rights and so forth, where were the ECOWAS leaders?"
Mr. Pratt advised African leaders to take decisions that will positively impact the lives of their citizens to avoid any kind of anarchy.
"Our African leaders must also understand that some of their actions call for coup. If they don't live a good life, it can bring about a coup . . . coup isn't something we should call for but our leaders must conduct themselves properly."
He spoke on Peace FM's morning show "Kokrokoo".
