Despite the continued anti-government protests, killings, and other charges against President Keita, he still holds on to power. The protesters and the opposition leaders are accusing the president of his inability to end corruption, reform the economy, provide basic social services, and put an end to the killings. He is also accused of failing to end the year-long jihadist and Bukharin insurgent fighting in the north of the country. Meanwhile, the protests continue in other parts of the country. It is hoped that the ECOWAS mediation delegation of former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan currently in Bamako will yield good results for Mali and bring relief to the people and their president.
Protesters continue their protests in Bamako. Will President Keita go? Not likely.
