The president of the transition, Captain Ibrahim Traoré, has decided to reorganize his government. There are four departures from the old team and four new appointments, to Territorial Administration, Justice, Agriculture, and the Environment.

The secretary general of the government announced this reshuffle on the set of the evening news on public television.

The main change, given the situation in the country, is made in the Territorial Administration and Security, which will be occupied by a civilian. Indeed, Colonel Boukaré Zoungrana is leaving and is replaced by magistrate Émile Zerbo, who was in charge of the counter-terrorism judicial pole of the Ouaga 2 high court.

The lawyer Rodrigue Edasso Bayala becomes Keeper of the Seals. He had sat in the National Assembly under the presidency of Roch Marc Christian Kaboré, under the banner of the Union for the Renaissance Sankarist Party, a party from which he resigned in September 2022 for personal “convenience”.

Previously Director General of the National Food Security Stock Management Company, Commander Ismael Sombié replaces Denis Ouedraogo at the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal and Fisheries Resources.

Finally, the Ministry of the Environment, Energy, Water, and Sanitation will now be headed by Roger Barro, who until then was the director of the prevention of pollution and environmental risks.
