ormer Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita died this Sunday in Bamako, the capital of Mali, announced sources close to his family in the national capital Sunday. He was 76.
The cause of death was not yet known.
Having come to power in September 2013 and being re-elected in 2018, Keita was overthrown on Aug. 18, 2020, by the National Committee for the Salvation of the People (CNSP) after months of street protests to challenge his regime.
Shortly after the coup d’etat that overthrew him, the junta granted him all the benefits for a former president of the Republic of Mali.
And since his ouster, he had stayed several times in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, for health reasons.
