Sekou Toure was cold blooded killer who terrorize Guineans and plunged Guinea in to the dark ages, he deserves no sympathy if he was alive he would be in jail for the crimes he committed against Guineans. Guinea is behind today because of that murderer!!!!

Rappellez vous de cette citation de Ahmed Sekou Toure "Le travail anobli L'homme"? Alors mes chers amis en quete de trouver solution a un decollage economique harmonieux et equilibre du pays, je suppose, il est temps de nous donner les mains et travailler. La haine et les injures non seulement n'arrangent pas la situation a main, mais aussi exposent les carences intellectueles. Les contributions de A.Sekou Toure a l'epanouissement de la Guinee et de l'Afrique en general,sont bien connuent a travers le MONDE. Que son ame repose en paix!

Sekou Toure?
An enigma, a paradox.
He was a handsome African with white teeth that glistened.
He was a gifted orator, an attractive personality and a remarkable ability to attract and destroy fellow Guineans he knew were cable of displacing him to the benefit of his country and its great people.
Thus a thrilling artist like Fodeba Keita, founder of the sensational Ballets Africains, imposing Colonel Kaman Diaby and the towering Diallo Telli all agreed to serve him, and did so very well. He paid them with death and in the case of Telli Diallo, fist Secretary General of the OAU, with starvation at Camp Boiro, his sinister prison.
Sekou Toure's 'NON' to De Gaulle was disgraceful for African honor.
Toure's decent into the politics of lies and extermination of his brilliant countrymen irrespective of tribe, loyalty and capabilities is a monumental infamy that will surely face judgement of the divine.

Well said and what I can only term as a brilliant inspiring poem. This is the reason we are asking our brothers and sisters to educate themselves and stop this name calling and swearing at each other. Our problem in Guinea is our Leaders failed us and they continue to fail us yet people are going out to kill each other for these corrupt, selfish and ruthless thugs that have delivered nothing but misery to the Guinean people.

It is unnecessary to discuss about someone who never filling of his people. Someone who was hit economic growth in his country for sake of power. Someone stopped people doing business in there own country
