Burkina Faso: President Kaboré dissolves the government

Burkinabè President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré has, by decree, dismissed Prime Minister Christophe Joseph Marie Dabiré from his functions and dissolved the government.

“The prime minister’s functions are over, the government is dissolved,” a presidential decree said.

The West African country has been plagued since 2015 by recurrent jihadist attacks that have made more than a million people internally displaced.

Mr. Kaboré, who promised to bring “security and stability” to the country during his second and last term, has so far struggled to achieve this goal and is facing growing public anger.
