Roch Marc Christian Kaboré, at the head of Burkina Faso since 2015, was arrested Monday by mutinous soldiers for not being able to prevent the descent into hell from his country undermined by jihadist violence.

In 2015, a year after the fall of Blaise Compaore, overthrown by a popular insurrection after 27 years of power, the election of Mr Kaboré had aroused great hopes for development and change to the "Country of Histor of Men".

But it is precisely in 2015 that Burkina Faso hitherto spared, begins to undergo the assaults of armed jihadist groups that have only increased over the years.

It therefore makes the promise during its election campaign that the fight against jihadists will be the first of its priorities.

But attacks and massacres in the North continue, like those in the village of Solhan in June 2021 during which at least 132 civilians are killed, or inata mid-November of the same year when 57 people die, of which 53 gendarmes.

Therefore, the manifestations of populations of populations exceeded by this violence multiply to denounce "impotence" of power, of the manifestations most often repressed by the police.

minister son, man to the ideals of the left claimed in his debut in politics after studies in France, he took advantage of the 1980s of the power of Thomas Sankara, the father of the Marxist-inspired revolution, to become Director of the International Bank of Burkina even before his thirtieth anniversary.

After the assassination of Sankara in 1987, he commits to the new strong man of Burkina, Blaise Compaoré. The climb is lightning: several times minister, Prime Minister, President of the Assembly ... He is one of the key men of the regime.

considered probable successor of Compaoré, Roch Marc Christian Kaboré brutally falls into disgrace in 2012 for obscure reasons. He slams the door of the party to power in 2014 at the dusk of the regime - being taxed with opportunism by his detractors - and founds his own party, the movement of the people for progress (MPP).

A year later, after a transition, he takes the reins of Faso, acting by taking his time, going to be nicknamed the "Diesel President". Then his "indolence" facing the security threat has become another problem, according to his opponents.

He "is a kind of lazy king that multiplies the hearings and listens in his chair without making a decision," said a diplomatic source in Abidjan in 2020.
