Reactions

Bounty... The Sankara spirit is here to liberate his people because the old heads have destroyed everything with corruption .

Tara... Countless governments overthrow in this lawless country. I guess the innocent blood of Thomas Sankara is still hunting them.

Mark... Great news there. We know who is working behind the scene to destabilise those West African states, and who is financing those Islamists

Balki... We are gradually getting back to the 80s and 90s military take overs but guess what! It's the only way to get rid of neocolonialism. Africa ahead.
