Sanguié: the population of Kordié offers 266,000 FCFA to the VDPs


A fundraiser, at the initiative of the president of the special delegation of the commune of Kordié, made it possible to raise the sum of 266,000 CFA francs to support the Volunteers for the Defense of the Fatherland (VDP) in their very beneficial tasks. It was Saturday June 29, 2024 at Kordié town hall.

The Village Development Councils (CVD) of the sixteen villages of the commune of Kordié responded to the call for solidarity launched by the PDS, Gueswendé Léopold Segueda, for the benefit of the VDP.

When counting the contributions, 9 CVDs present gave the sum of 266,000 FCFA. Those absent promised to return their donations later.

In view of this gesture, the PDS of the commune, Gueswendé Léopold Segueda, is delighted in these terms: ‘I am really pleased to see the attitude of the population who does not hesitate to lend a hand to the VDP to reassure them of its unfailing support.

And to explain the reason which prevailed for the collection of these support funds: ‘The VDP came to submit a grievance to m
e, namely support for the plastering of four combat posts that they built (in banco) in their headquarters in order to be more operational. And as the town hall does not have resources in this area, we turned to the population to contribute, added the PDS, given the risks of deterioration of the structures with bad weather.

It is therefore through the CVD that the populations of the different villages were made aware. Aware of the VDP’s patriotic commitment to watch over the commune, they did not hesitate for a single moment to make themselves useful.

Thus, each village had promised, depending on its size, to contribute 10,000 F or 20,000 F. And against all expectations, apart from Kordié center which gave 50,000 F, the others raised their shares to 25,000 F for some and 30,000 F for others.

Mr. Segueda, who had at his side the secretary general of the town hall and the head of the national police station of Kordié, while verbally thanking the CVD for this combined effort, reassured that the amount collect
ed would go for the plastering of the four posts constructed and operational matters of the headquarters, including fuel supply for patrols.

Note that a first collection, in the meantime, had made it possible to raise more than 600,000 F for the peace effort.

The slayers of the Transition act out of revenge for not having had positions, PM


Ouagadougou: The Prime Minister of Burkina Faso, Me Apollinaire Kyelem de Tambèla, affirmed Monday that most of those who are fighting the Transition are acting out of revenge because they asked in vain for positions.

‘What you may not know is that, from the first hours of this regime, most of them offered their services to the current authorities in vain. Knowing their duplicity, no follow-up was given to them. Some waited in vain to be approached.

It was therefore out of spite, out of a spirit of revenge, and to satisfy base ambitions that they threw all their strength into the fight against the regime.

They have no project to propose, apart from that of putting Burkina back into the chains of servitude, and to mess around again in complete freedom with the terrorists, at the price of the blood of the Burkinabè,’ said Mr. Apollinaire Kyelem on Monday. of Tambèla.

He was speaking during the monthly raising of colors at the Prime Minister’s office.
