Colonel Mamadi Doumbouya Shocked Guineans And The World Today

Colonel Mamadi Doumbouya shocked Guineans and the world today at the Boulbinet Mosque in Conakry during the Friday d’hour prayers by refusing to seat at the front row that was reserved for him and his entourage, but instead sat outside to pray as the mosque was already full when he got there.

Well before the Colonel arrived with his entourage, the Boulbinet mosque elders had done as usual, reserving the first three rows “saffat” for the president and his entourage.

To everyone’s surprise, he arrived and stood outside. As the imam, “Sallis”, praise-singers and elders where urging him to get in and seat at the front next to the “miraab”, he reminded the mosque elders and those present that there should be no distinction in the house of worship. Everyone should be equal in the mosque. I hope he continues with this attitude. He reminds me of Thomas Sankara.

Mamady Doumbouya is a Guinean military officer serving as the interim president of Guinea since 1 October 2021. Doumbouya led a coup d’état on 5 September 2021 that overthrew the previous president, Alpha Condé. He is member of the Guinean Special Forces Group and a former French legionnaire
