The head of state for Guinea Mamady Doumbouya has eulogized a young millitary officer who fought fiercely for Alpha Conde during the millitary take over of the presidency last month. The soldier identified as Abdoulaya Balde was the last to be killed before the coup plotters got hold of Alpha Conde.
During his burial today in Conakry, the government praised the young soldier for defending his country with the last drop of his blood even though his commander had no respect for the rule of law. A tribute from the millitary high command stated that Balde was fearless, discipline and above all patriotic. He died in line of duty and could only be described as a netional hero.
He reportedly held the Mamady lead special forces for close to two hours before they finally gunned him down to break the defence of Prof. Alpha Conde.
According to reports from africanshowbizz.com intercepted by CitizenOne, Balde was laid to rest at a millitary cemetery in Conakry.
