The office of the provincial section of the Patriotic Watch Movement of Faso, organized this Thursday, April 11, 2024 in Nouna, a press conference to provide support for the Transition through unity of action.

The first official outing of the patriotic watch movement of Faso, provincial section of Kossi, brought together media people on Thursday April 11, 2024 in Nouna.

The president of the Faso Patriotic Watch Movement (MVPF), Ibrahim Coulibaly, presented the provincial office made up of ten members and gave the conditions for individual and collective membership in the movement.

He placed public opinion on the apolitical nature of the movement which is a civil society organization and clarified that the movement is not a trade union organization.

Asked why the patriotic watch movement in Faso, he underlined that like other localities in Burkina, the Boucle du Mouhoun and particularly Kossi remained too wait-and-see with organizations supporting the transition.

‘To fill this void, the MVPF was created
to express the voice of the sons and daughters of the Boucle du Mouhoun region,’ he said.

For him, the transition under the leadership of Captain Ibrahim Traoré works tirelessly for the happiness of the populations through very significant achievements.

These include, among other things, the reduction of prices for health care, the construction of tomato factories and gold refineries, without forgetting the operationalization of fighting forces through the acquisition of equipment, the rehabilitation of Bobo airport and especially the creation of the alliance of Sahel states (AES). All this helps to guarantee our people their true independence.

Based on this observation, Ibrahim Coulibaly invited the daughters and sons of Kossi to unite to provide their full support for the transition.

The patriotic watch movement of Faso has made approaches and will do more with associations and umbrella organizations, as evidenced by citizen participation and the patriotic commitment initiated by the administrative auth
orities of Kossi as part of a public health day.

The Patriotic Coalition of Kossi (COPAKO), the Provincial Youth Council (CPJ), the Patriotic Watch Movement of Faso and the Association of Women Sweepers participated in this day.

Council of Ministers and bilateral cooperation make the headlines this Friday


Ouagadougou: This Friday’s publications highlight bilateral cooperation between Burkina Faso and China and then the council of ministers.

‘Council of Ministers: report of the work of Thursday April 11, 2024’, displays the state daily Sidwaya on its headline.

The newspaper reports that the Council adopted a decree creating a military penitentiary establishment in Ouagadougou.

Which makes the private daily Le Pays say that ‘the adoption of this decree allows military justice, through the Military Tribunal, to comply with the standards of penitentiary establishments and the requirements prescribed by the various jurisdictional authorities’.

The public daily still reporting the deliberations of the Council of Ministers, mentions the ‘Relaunch of the organization of the Night of the Lompolo, the 4th edition of which is scheduled for November 15, 2024 in Ouagadougou’.

He continued that the relaunch of the ‘Night of the Lompolo’ is a recognition of the State to the efforts made by the actors of an important par
t of culture.

The private daily Le Pays, for its part, mentions on its front page, according to the report of the Council of Ministers, ‘Former minister Boukaré Zoungrana appointed ambassador to Chad’.

The dean of private daily newspapers, the Paalga Observer on his headline, still dealing with the Council of Ministers, informs that Hermann Ilboudo is the new CEO of BUMIGEB.

In another register, the private newspaper Le Pays writes in its columns ‘Bilateral cooperation: Burkinabè journalists discovering China’.

Patriotic commitment and citizenship: Annihilate the ugly face of Burkinabè (Corner paper)


Ouagadougou: Burkina Faso organized from March 26 to April 9, 2024, the National Days of Patriotic Commitment and Citizen Participation (JEPPC) .

The initiative aimed at awareness-raising actions on sanitation, reforestation and discipline , but also support for fighting forces .

At the end of the fortnight on Tuesday , Prime Minister Apollinaire Joachimson Kyé lem de Tambe declared that the results were positive. In other words, the expected results were achieved.

This initiative by the Transition authorities , the first of its kind, meets with the approval of citizens. They, through activities and behaviors, demonstrated their support.

Raising drapes, wearing traditional Burkinabè outfits, eating local dishes , were observed, among other things, during these two weeks.

On the sidelines of this fortnight , Burkinabè individuals or in associations took civic actions . This is the case of the national collective for refoundation which, on the eve of Ramadan, gave three tons of food to the women of the Gre
en Brigade, to enable them to celebrate.

Another citizen delivered medical consumables to a reference health center in the Burkinabe capital. In short, the examples are legion.

It must be recognized that many Burkinabè people did not wait for the national days of patriotic commitment and citizen participation to adopt these beneficial behaviors. And they are not going to stop or suspend their generosity once the fortnight is over, either .

However , while the JEPPC was taking place, national news showed that some Burkinabè (fortunately a minority) are capable of the worst .

Indeed, last week, the press reported on the behavior of a trader in Bobo-Dioulasso which shocks ordinary mortals.

This trader pushed greed , let’s say wickedness , to the point of reselling pebbles in the form of cereals intended for human consumption .

He and his acolytes were arrested on Wednesday April 3, 2024 by the Hauts-Bassins Regional Judicial Police Service (SRPJ). According to media accounts , these individuals crushed gra
nite and quartz into small grains so that their mixture with grain was difficult to detect.

‘ It was around forty bags of sorghum mixed with stones that the SRPJ was able to sixteen from the merchant’s store, ‘ we report .

At a time when we are promoting good behavior , this hideous side of Burkinabè must be fought, even destroyed.

The Transition authorities are working to encourage good examples and inspire others. It is in this dynamic that the national coordinator of presidential initiatives regularly carries out field trips to Ouagadougou and other cities.

On each of his outings to visit streets paved by Burkinabè at their own expense , he highlights these initiators of development in the neighborhoods and congratulates them.

It brings joy to the heart to see that gestures of patriotism are being seen among adolescents and children. There are many students who contribute in their own way to the peace effort, often even without the knowledge of their parents.

This is the case in Tenkodogo where two c
hildren (twins) on the basis of the sums they received for snacks at school, were able to put aside money which they gave to support the Fighting Forces.

Their aunt with whom they live admitted in the report that she had not yet given her contribution and that she was unaware that these children were contributing to this noble cause.

In Ouagadougou, Noéla and Toussiane Zabré, both 5th grade students at the MonSeigneur André Dupont school complex, have been talked about positively in recent days. In fact, the two teenagers have decided to donate , for the benefit of the Patriotic Support Fund ( FSP ), all of their income for the month of March from the sale of sweets, which they make.

With such behavior of little ones, we are certain that the next generation in terms of patriotic commitment and citizen participation is assured. It remains to stay the course of awareness-raising and governance by example.

The Rector of the African University for Cooperative Development (UADC), Barthélémy Biao,
congratulated the PAMEF management team for having mobilized 54 learners in a first class, after 10 years of lethargy.

‘I hope there was added value that will be useful to them in the various positions they will occupy,’ said Mr. Biao.

The class delegate, Marcel Do, expressed his recognition for the quality training and the diploma received, which for him are the symbol of personal accomplishment.

On behalf of the applicants, he asked the general director of the RCPB to promote and entrust major responsibilities to the RCPB students from the promotion.
