For all those who live in the country, reports of the strike call that has been followed is very funny. In fact, this was not followed at all. A few angry partisans of Alassane Ouattara have decided that they will terrorize transporters and shop tenants in order to give the wrong impression that the strike has been followed.
The reality is the following: Alassane Ouattara has decided to use terror. But the people are showing him that they do not consider him as his president. They keep going about their normal activities.
Taxi drivers are being threatened of death, some are even stabbed!
Information of the manager of a shop of a mobile phone operator to Korhogo who phoned us yesterday evening: they received in all the stores of the city the visits of groups of rebels today ordering to close tomorrow, at the risk of seeing their plundered shops. These rebels were very angry because the multiple strike calls have not been followed (even in the North!!!). They thus threaten whoever will dare to open their business today, December 29th, 2010.
