Africa has become the continent of civil war for decades and it is all because of the race to power between militias. Burkina Faso is a clear example for that.
Burkina Faso has been under the rule of Blaise Compaoré for 27 years from 1987 till 2014 when the Burkinabé uprising happened. It seems that people never forgot how he came to power.
In 2020 Burkina Faso are suffering from terrorist attacks from jihadists that left many people killed. They attack even schools and that is not what Islam teaches.
Burkinabé people should unite and decide what is best for them and their country because this current situation is not at all promising. Poverty and famine are very easy to see in some areas. The UNICEF is doing what it can to help.
Huge efforts need to be made in order to bring about peace in Burkina Faso. Without peace, there can be no future for any nation.
My message to the Burkinabé people:
“Unite and stop the conflicts. Your country needs peace now more than ever. If you can’t help yourselves, nobody can help you. It is your country. It is your future”.
