The chairman of the national independent electoral commission (CENI) in Guinea, Amadou Salif Kébé, died Friday at the University Hospital Center (CHU) of Donka.
Admitted to hospital a few days ago, Mr. Kébé was in intensive care at Donka Hospital.
His last media appearance was in late March, when he published the results of the controversial double ballot (legislative and referendum) of March 22, 2020.
He was one of Guinea’s high profile victims of the respiratory disease.
Since March 12, Guinea has recorded over 400 positive cases of Covid-19, including 49 recoveries and three deaths.
