On January 9, 2023, Guinea set up a prytanée, a preparatory school intended for the training of military cadres, for the first time since its independence. Inaugurated by Colonel Mamadi Doumbouya, the president of the transition indicated that he wanted to “obtain the best executives for the civil and military administrations”.
Guinea has a prytanée, a military school. The establishment was inaugurated on January 9, 2023, in Conakry by the president of the transition, Colonel Mamadi Doumbouya.
It is the first time since its independence in 1958 that such a preparatory school has opened in the country for the training of military officers. Especially since the Guinean troops are best known for their cruel lack of professional qualifications, but above all for the numerous cases of abuse committed against the population.
With this prytanée, the objective is to develop a military hierarchy with real skills and be educated in the moral values of the army.
It is the Alpha Yaya Diallo camp, in the suburbs of Conakry, which was chosen to house the military prytanée of Guinea.
In his inaugural speech, Colonel Mamadi Doumbouya said he wanted to “bring together the most brilliant children around a common project to pull the country towards a culture of excellence and obtain the best executives for the civil and military administrations”.
