The Malian Government headed by President Ibrahim Keita has bowed to the demand of the growing opposition and protesters' demand to dissolve the constitutional court of the country. Another major demand of the protesters is the resignation of the president. This they may not ever get him to do and the demonstrations will continue indefinitely.
Meanwhile, the president's party's office was reported ransacked and looted by protesters. There seems to be two groups of opposition in the protest. While opposition leaders are seemingly dropping their 'resignation' demand, others are calling for him to go.
As usual, the protests have turned into looting, burning of cars and buildings. It is said about 75-80 people have died in the ongoing protests.
ECOWAS' fear now is this might spilt over to neighboring countries many of whom have jihadist and insurgents trouble on hands couple with COVID-19 Pandemic.
