Ivory Coast Prime Minister Hamed Bakayoko Dies in Freiburg at 56
Ivory Coast’s Prime Minister Hamed Bakayoko, who was viewed as a potential replacement to President Alassane Ouattara, has kicked the bucket in Freiburg in south-west Germany, two days after his 56th birthday celebration, the public authority said on Wednesday.
A previous media leader who went to governmental issues, Bakayoko went about as a moderator and delegate between fighting groups as a delayed common clash racked Ivory Coast from the mid-2000s.
A nearby partner of Ouattara, he was selected as head administrator in July 2020 after the abrupt passing of his archetype Amadou Gon Coulibaly, who had been handpicked by Ouattara to succeed him.
He was traveled to France on Feb. 18 for clinical checks and later to Freiburg in Germany.
The public authority said in a proclamation on Friday that Ouattara had met Bakayoko during a visit in France a week ago, and given the condition of the pastor’s wellbeing, it was suggested that his hospitalization ought to be broadened.
