Ndaw and Ouane, who remained at a military camp in Kati, near Bamako and where the August 2020 coup d’état against then President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita took place, did not issue statements after their release, Journal du Mali stated.

On Wednesday, Commander Baba Cisse, an advisor to Vice President Assimi Goita and who acts as his spokesman, indicated that ‘after the president and the prime minister resigned, the detainees will regain their freedom,’ which he specified, it would be done ‘gradually for obvious safety reasons.’

The source defended the need for the resignation of the prime minister and the president, which occurred in the presence of Goodluck Jonathan, mediator of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) for Mali, and indicated that Vice President Goita did everything possible not to get to this situation. The resignations were announced a day after the coup, which occurred amid a new political crisis, whose mediation is in charge of ECOWAS and when the international demand to free the two Malian politicians linked to the transformation process grew.
