General Doumbouya stated, “I am honored to host in Conakry my brother and friend, His Excellency Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda. This visit, following the first one, is a testament to the strong relationship of brotherhood and friendship between our countries and it strengthens the cooperation between Conakry and Kigali.”

General Doumbouya also announced that he and President Kagame were proud to meet Hadja Andrée Touré, the widow of Ahmed Sékou Touré, Guinea’s first president, and that their conversation with Hadja was deeply emotional.

General Doumbouya added, “We are profoundly honored to meet Hadja Andrée Touré, the widow of Guinea’s first president, the late Ahmed Sékou Touré. This meeting, marked by symbols and emotions, reminds us of the rich legacy we possess and the patriotic spirit that guides us.”

He continued, “The warm handshake between President Kagame and Hadja Andrée Touré, and my handshake with the president’s widow, are symbols that we should learn from the past to address current challenges.”

President Kagame’s visit to Guinea followed his trip to Senegal on May 12th and 13th, where he met with the country’s new president, Bassirou Diomaye Faye, and Prime Minister Ousmane Sonko.
