OPERATION CLEAN HANDS


Captain Moussa Dadis Camara (born 1964) is an officer of the Guinean army who is serving as the President of the Republic of Guinea and as chairman of the Guinea's National Council for Democracy and Development (Conseil National de la Démocratie et du Développement, CNDD), which seized power in a military coup d'etat on 23 December 2008 following the death of long-time President Lansana Conté. As head of the CNDD, which captain Moussa Dadis Camara describes as a transitional body that will oversee the country's return to democracy, captain Dadis Camara is the Head of State of Guinea.


BIOGRAPHY

His Excellency President Moussa Dadis Camara was born in 1964 in Koure, Lola Prefecture in the far southeast of Guinea, near the border with Côte d'Ivoire and Liberia. He went to school 40km away in the regional capital, Nzérékoré. He studied law and economics at the Abdel Nasser University in Conakry . He is a Christian and speaks four languages: French, Kpelle, Susu and Maninka. He joined the Army of Guinea in 1990 as a corporal and in 2004 went to Germany for 18 months military training. He was one of the leading mutineers in the 2008 Guinean military unrest. In November 2008, he was named head of the army's fuel supplies unit and a member of the Minister of Defense's cabinet. Prior to the December 2008 coup, he was not well known by the general population.

Christmas 2008

In the early hours of December 23, 2008, Aboubacar Somparé, the President of the National Assembly, announced on television that former president Conté had died due to illness on December 22. Six hours after Somparé announced Conté's death, a statement was read on television announcing a military coup d'état. This statement, read by Captain Dadis Camara on behalf of the CNDD, said that "the government and the institutions of the Republic had been dissolved". The statement also announced the suspension of the constitution "as well as political and union activity". According to captain Dadis Camara, the coup was necessary due to Guinea's "deep despair" amidst rampant poverty and corruption, and he said that the existing institutions were "incapable of resolving the crises which have been confronting the country." Furthermore, he said that someone from the military would become President, while a civilian would be appointed as Prime Minister at the head of a new government that would be ethnically balanced. The National Council for Democracy and Development would, according to captain Camara, include 26 officers as well as six civilians.

A new statement was read over the radio on 24 December announcing that Captain Moussa Dadis Camara was the President of the CNDD. Later in the day, Camara and thousands of soldiers loyal to him paraded through the city, surrounded by large numbers of civilian supporters. According to captain Camara, he "came to see if the terrain is favorable to us", declaring that the large crowds indicated that the people were indeed supportive of the coup. Also on 24 December, Dadis Camara said in a radio broadcast that the CNDD did not want to stay in power indefinitely and that it intended to lead the country towards "credible and transparent presidential elections.

Speaking on the radio on 25 December, His Excellency President Moussa Dadis Camara declared that the CNDD was not susceptible to bribes. According to President Dadis, people had "started to show up with bags of money to try to corrupt us. They've tried to give money to our wives and cars to our children." He warned that he would "personally go after anyone that tries to corrupt us" and started his campaign:
