Violence Erupts After Guinea’s Election Results Announced

“Tensions have been growing here,” reported an Alliance worker this week who serves in Guinea. “People have wanted to know the results of the November 7 elections, delayed a number of times, but they have only been released bit-by-bit each night.” 

On November 15, Guinea’s election commission (CENI) finally announced the results—Alpha Condé received 52.5 percent and Cellou Dialen Diallo 47.5 percent of the provisional votes.  The country’s constitutional court must certify the results before they become official.

“The news has not been well received in many parts of the country,” said a second Alliance worker, who also serves in the West African nation. “Some have been wounded in riots with the police. Please pray extra for Guinea over these next few days. Pray for peace and patience with the process to hand over leadership responsibilities to President Condé. Pray for good health for the new president and that the Lord would somehow lead him to Himself!” 

Alliance staff members across Guinea are gathered for scheduled team meetings and a prayer retreat from Thursday to Sunday noon (November 18-21).  “We are privileged to serve the Lord here in Guinea at this time,” the workers said.  “Please pray that our light would shine bright for the Lord!”

What You Can Do

“Pray for God to calm hearts,” an Alliance leader in Africa urged. “And thank you for upholding our Guinea team and church community as you pray for this nation.”
