Both Thomas Sankara and Blaise Compaoré grew up in our house. They were more than brothers to my father, who took care of them both. My father escorted them both to the national army, where they were both enlisted. It was the saddest moment in our family's lives when we learned that my brother had been deposed and slain by Blaise Compaoré, but my father stood firm, saying that brothers have differences and tragedies happen.
He then dispatched a delegation to Blaise, instructing him to return home and sit down with him to explain what had occurred; he was willing to forgive him and accept him back as his son. My father, on the other hand, waited until the day he died before making any decisions.
My father, on the other hand, waited until his death to find out what had happened to Thomas or to forgive Blaise Compaoré, who had never returned to our home." Sister of Thomas Sankara, Odile Sankara gave insightful account about Blaise compaore who betrayed Thomas Sankara
