  • Revolution in Burkina Faso: The Fall of Compaoré

    In late October, the landlocked African nation of Burkina Faso saw the end of its president’s 27-year-long reign. A popular revolution terminated Blaise Compaoré’s term after he tried to change the constitution so that he could run for a fifth consecutive term. Cornered by an angry mob in his presidential palace, "Beau Blaise" fled the country along with his entourage as protesters torched the National Assembly and other symbols of the old regime. Now in exile, Compaoré is rumored to be living in luxury on the Ivory Coast. In Burkina Faso, a new transitional government has emerged, led by President Michel Kafando and his prime minister, Lieutenant-Colonel Yacouba Isaac Zida. VICE News went to the streets of Burkina Faso’s capital of Ouagadougou in the midst of the revolution to document...

    What is supposed to be a nice tour through the various museums in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso turns into a bit of a dud. The national museum is closed and the music museum is down for renovations. However, Ouagadougou is a nice place to just wander around even if it means not visiting any museums or doing normal touristy things. One of the things I take in on this day is the beautiful Grande Mosque in Ouagadougou which is absolutely brilliant. Next to the mosque, there are plenty of shops, vendors and heaps of activity. In general, Ouagadougou is about as comfortable as any capital city in west Africa.

Reo Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Largest_cities_of_Burkina_Faso Burkina Faso is a landlocked country in West Africa around 274,200 square kilometres (105,900 sq mi) in size. It is surrounded by six countries: Mali to the north; Niger to the east; Benin to the southeast; Togo and Ghana to the south; and Ivory Coast to the southwest. Its capital is Ouagadougou. As of 2014, its population is estimated at just over 17.3 million. Formerly called the Republic of Upper Volta, the country was renamed "Burkina Faso" on 4 August 1984 by then-President Thomas Sankara. Residents of Burkina Faso are known as Burkinabè. French is an official language of government and business. Prior to the conquest of what is now Burkina Faso by the French and other colonial powers during the late 19th century the country was ruled by various ethnic groups including the Mossi kingdoms. After gaining independence from France in 1960, the country underwent many governmental changes. Today it is a semi-presidential republic. Blaise Compaoré was the most recent president and ruled the country from 1987until he was ousted from power by the popular youth upheaval of 31 October 2014. The northwestern part of today's Burkina Faso was populated by hunter-gatherers between 14,000 and 5000 BC. Their tools, including scrapers, chisels and arrowheads, were discovered in 1973 through archeological excavations. Agricultural settlements were established between 3600 and 2600 BC. The Bura culture was an Iron-Age civilization centered in the southwest portion of modern-day Niger and in the southeast part of contemporary Burkina Faso. Iron industry, in both smelting and forging for tools and weapons, had developed in Sub-Saharan Africa by 1200 BC. Historians debate the exact dates when Burkina Faso's many ethnic groups arrived in the country. The Proto-Mossi arrived in the far eastern part of what is today Burkina Faso sometime between AD 700 and the 11th century, the Samo arrived around the 1400s, the Dogon lived in Burkina Faso's north and northwest regions until sometime in the fifteenth or sixteenth centuries and many of the other diverse ethnic groups which currently make up the country's population arrived in the region during this time. During the Middle Ages the Mossi established several separate kingdoms including the kingdoms of Tenkodogo, Yatenga, Gourma, Zandoma, and Ouagadougou. Sometime between 1328 and 1338 Mossi warriors raided Timbuktu but the Mossi were defeated by Sonni Ali of Songhai at the Battle of Kobi in Mali in 1483. During the early 16th century the Songhai conducted many slave raids into what is today Burkina Faso. During the 18th Century the Gwiriko Empire was established at Bobo Dioulasso and ethnic groups such as the Dyan, Lobi, and Birifor settled along the Black Volta.

Burkina was home to the ill-fated revolutionary Thomas Sankara, who as president alienated the French by calling them neo-colonialists, told the country’s creditors he wouldn’t pay them, slated African leaders for their corruption, and practiced what he preached. Blaise Compaoré led a coup against Sankara in 1987, and he has been in power ever since. Compaoré was a trusted ally of Sankara’s. Sankara was assassinated during Compaoré’s coup. 2. Capital of Burkina Faso is Ouagadougou. Written as “Wogodogo” in the Mòoré dialect, it literally means “You are welcome here at home with us”. Known in colonial times as Upper Volta, Burkina Faso means ‘Land of the Honourable People.’ 3. The country has arguably the world’s best place names. Its capital is Ouagadougou. Leafy Bobo-Dioulasso is the second city. It also boasts the desert market town of Gorom-Gorom, Bouroum-Bouroum, Fada N’Gourma, Tin-Akof, Niangoloko and, er, Rambo. 4. The ‘W’ park spans across three countries (Benin, Burkina Faso and Niger). Its unusual name stems from the double bend in the Niger river on its northeastern side (like an upturned ‘W’). Now the park’s savannah woodland is home to over 30 species of mammal and 350 species of bird. 5. Burkina Faso is home to 60 different ethnic groups, each with their own variety of folk music. The Bobo, one of the ethnic groups in Burkina Faso make large butterfly masks which are used to invoke the deity Do in fertility ceremonies. The Mossi are known for their antelope masks. The Lobi carve wood. 6. Like all of the west of Africa, Burkina Faso was populated early, notably by hunter-gatherers in the northwestern part of the country, and whose tools were discovered in 1973. Settlements appeared between 3600 and 2600 BC with farmers, the traces of whose structures leave the impression of relatively permanent buildings. 7. Captain Paul Voulet, who led the French expedition, was a real-life Kurtz figure, who stuck victims’ heads on poles, roasted children over fires, and strung up soldiers who displeased him at a height where their feet could be reached by hyenas’ hungry jaws. When his superiors tried to reign him in, he told his troops he was no longer French but a “black chief,” who would found his own empire. After he was killed, the French, embarrassed that their civilising mission in their colonies had gone awry, attributed Voulet’s activities to the maddening heat of Africa.

In late October, the landlocked African nation of Burkina Faso saw the end of its president’s 27-year-long reign. A popular revolution terminated Blaise Compaoré’s term after he tried to change the constitution so that he could run for a fifth consecutive term. Cornered by an angry mob in his presidential palace, "Beau Blaise" fled the country along with his entourage as protesters torched the National Assembly and other symbols of the old regime. Now in exile, Compaoré is rumored to be living in luxury on the Ivory Coast. In Burkina Faso, a new transitional government has emerged, led by President Michel Kafando and his prime minister, Lieutenant-Colonel Yacouba Isaac Zida. VICE News went to the streets of Burkina Faso’s capital of Ouagadougou in the midst of the revolution to document the final hours of Compaoré’s reign.

What is supposed to be a nice tour through the various museums in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso turns into a bit of a dud. The national museum is closed and the music museum is down for renovations. However, Ouagadougou is a nice place to just wander around even if it means not visiting any museums or doing normal touristy things. One of the things I take in on this day is the beautiful Grande Mosque in Ouagadougou which is absolutely brilliant. Next to the mosque, there are plenty of shops, vendors and heaps of activity. In general, Ouagadougou is about as comfortable as any capital city in west Africa.
