The President of Burkina Faso, Roch Marc Christian Kaboré, has in a decree sacked Christophe Joseph Marie Dabiré, the country’s Prime Minister and dissolved the government.
“The functions of the prime minister are terminated, the government is dissolved,” a presidential decree revealed.
There is no news yet of when a future head of government will be appointed.
Since 2015, Burkina Faso has been plagued by recurrent jihadist attacks that have left a million people internally displaced.
The President of the West African country has promised to bring “security and stability” to the country in his second and last term.
So far, he has not succeeded in delivering his promise and he faces growing anger from the people of the country.
