Senegalese President Abdoulaye Wade has expressed "great satisfaction" after the agreement reached Friday in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, between the candidates in the second round of presidential elections in Guinea, Cellou Dalein Diallo and Alpha Conde, in a statement.
The statement said the agreement reached between former Prime Minister Cellou Dalein Diallo and the historical opponent Alpha Condé, under the head of state of Burkina Faso, Blaise Compaoré, concerns "the conduct of the electoral process for holding the second round of presidential election on September 19, 2010.

BHP, ArcelorMittal Scrap African Ore Venture Plan (Liberia and Guinea)
Sept. 8 (Bloomberg) -- BHP Billiton Ltd., the world’s biggest mining company, and ArcelorMittal have scrapped talks on a proposed iron ore joint venture in Liberia and Guinea.

“The companies were unable to reach a commercial agreement,” Luxembourg-based ArcelorMittal said today in a statement. BHP and ArcelorMittal, the world’s biggest steelmaker, said in January they were in negotiations on combining mining interests in the two countries.
BHP’s project may hold 600 million metric tons of iron ore and ArcelorMittal’s 1.5 billion tons, London-based Liberum Capital Ltd. analysts wrote in a report in January. In a separate statement, BHP also confirmed talks had stopped.


Threats of boycott of the presidential elections in Guinea.
The dignitaries from Upper Guinea, one of the four natural regions of the country, are protesting against the cancellation of the first round results in several important cities of this region. A cancellation decided by the Supreme Court in late July because of fraud and irregularities. Ten days before the second round, the Coordination of Upper Guinea, which includes the wise and respected from this region, defends the candidate Alpha Condé and believes that he was cheated in that decision.
The arguments used by Mamadou Kouyaté, spokesman of the dinitaries, are unconvincing. He criticizes the Supreme Court of having annulled the results of the first round in several cities of Upper Guinea. Besides the fact that all candidates have suffered the same fate, he forgets that qualified candidates have endorsed the first round results.

Guinea election head convicted of fraud
The head of Guinea's election commission and a senior aide have been sentenced to a year in jail for fraud during June's presidential vote.
Neither men were in court to hear the verdict. National Independent Election Commission (Ceni) president Ben Sekou Sylla has been in France for medical reasons since the day after the vote.
"Alpha Conde knows he cannot win. So he is using his connections inside the army and inside the interim government to try to manipulate the outcome of the vote," the Ceni planning director said.

Guinea: Jean-Marie Dore’s dangerous game
Guinean Prime Minister, Jean-Marie Dore, whose proposal to amend the electoral law for the second round of the presidential election on September 19 that had raised concerns, might be changing tactics to conceal his political moves to extend the transition.
He has openly violated the Memorandum of Understanding for peaceful elections in Guinea, signed in Ouagadougou by the mediator in the crisis, President Blaise Compaoré of Burkina Faso, and candidates Cellou Dalein Diallo and Alpha Condé. The violation is due to the fact that he held a meeting with Upper Guinea dignitaries for the candidate Alpha Condé’s cause.

Japan offers $ 5.8 million to Guinea
The Japanese government has earmarked an envelope of 5.8 million dollars for Guinea. This envelope is designed to solve the problems of food insecurity in the most deprived areas, a statement from the office of the Food Programme (WFP).

According to WFP, this aid comes "at a critical juncture" where food insecurity and natural disasters are resurfacing.

Quoted in the press release, the WFP Representative, Fatma Samoura, said that with this contribution, the institution will be able to provide vital food and nutritional support to 431,500 "vulnerable people" until the end of 2010.


General Sekouba Konaté back to Conakry
General Sekouba Konaté returned to Conakry this Thursday, September 9 in the evening after a visit to Libya and Morocco.
At the invitation of the guide of the Libyan Muammar Gaddafi, General Konate took part in celebrations marking the 41st anniversary of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya held on Wednesday 1st September.
After Tripoli, Konaté conducted Friday, Sept. 3, a private visit to Morocco for medical reasons.

Clashes between RPG and UFDG militants
Clashes between RPG and UFDG militants have left dozens wounded in Conakry. The activists of the two second round candidates clashed in several districts of Conakry this Saturday according to the staff members of both parties.

The UDF has joined UFDG
The Union of Democratic Forces of Guinea (UFDG) of Cellou Dalein Diallo and the Union of Democratic Forces (UDF), Mamadou Bah Baadiko all candidates in the first round of the presidential election of June 27, signed yesterday (10 September) a Memorandum of Understanding for an Alliance for the second round of the elections scheduled for September 19, according to UFDG officials.
Sidya Touré expressed his satisfaction and added that that the arrival of Mamadou Bah Baadiko is an additional power to build a renewed Guinea that any Guinean has always dreamed of.

General Konaté ordered the resignation of Minister Mouctar Diallo
The political commitment Mouctar Diallo has not been the detonator of the wrath of General Sékouba Konaté, but rather the the General considers that the young Minister has been involved in political party activities that are not to be covered by any member of the transition.
How about the prime minister campaigning for RPG?
The next few days may reshape Guinea’s political future, or are we heading towards a return of the military power?

Depuis la mise en place d'une plan national de lutte contre les ravages de la fièvre hémorragique à virus d'Ebola, 37 personnes ont été guéries de cette maladie, a déclaré samedi Philipe Barboza de l'Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS).
Le dernier bilan officiel fait état de 158 cas suspects sur 102 décès enregistrés dans les centres de traitement à Conakry et dans les préfectures de Kissidougou, Mecenta, Guékédou et Dabola, situées au centre et au sud est de la Guinée.
Au cours d'une conférence d'information, l'expert médical de l'OMS a estimé que les efforts consentis par le gouvernement guinéen appuyés par les partenaires sanitaires internationaux dont l'OMS, Médecin sans frontière (MSF) et l'Unicef, ont permis de stabiliser l'élan d'évolution de l'épidémie dans le pays.
"Ces personnes guéries d'Ebola sont sorties des centres de traitements et elles continuent de mener une vie normale à Conakry et à l'intérieur du pays", a affirmé Dr Barboza, avant de précisé que "la fièvre Ebola n'est pas une fatalité, car elle est une maladie au même titre que les autres maladies".

Alpha Condé à Labé

Aujourd'hui, nous exportons du café et du cacao mais pas de la banane. La Guinée a les mangues les plus recherchées. Les étrangers reconnaissent eux-mêmes que nos mangues sont plus douces que celles du Mali ou du Sénégal. Mais nous n'exportons plus de mangue. Nous avons commencé à exporter le coton. On produisait 40 mille tonnes de coton. A mon arrivée, ce chiffre est passé à 400 mille tonnes. J'ai réussi avec la société Géo-coton la relance de la culture du coton à Gaoual, Koundara, Siguiri et Mandianna. C'est une culture très importante pour le paysan...
