The mutinying soldiers were cheered by crowds as they reached the capital Bamako

In a summer of an upheaval which toppled the constitutionally elected government on August 18, many Malian citizens were seen on the streets with a stalk of celebrations indicative of the fact that most of these citizens have been unhappy with the sweep of policies that had encompassed their
living within Malian territories whilst, unsurprisingly the opposition had fully thrown its weight behind the coup d’etat.

Moreover, the impression from this wild jubilation was eponymous of a bleak stricken democratic situation that hounds the fundamentals of constitutionality, freedom of speech, free and fair elections, a healthy opposition, rule of law, transparent account of public funds, among others but whilst some may indicate that it is a charade, others may further an argument of a prevaricated situation.

Recent statistics has indicated that Malians have a firm in belief in the rule of law with a majority asserting unwavering hope in the tenets of democratic governance and a strong disdain to any form of military rule. Malians have expressed their strongest inclination to an actionable government and a system that fairly accounts to its citizens wherein most hold the former and the latter on the same balance however, throughout the paths of history, military governments do not deliver the assurances for which reason they usurp the civilian governments rather, they wield far worst records on abuse of human rights and freedoms, embezzlement of funds, unfair public accountability and a system of dictatorship that wholly destroys the foundations of democracy but of course, the flashes of Zimbabwe 2017 signals to us the instant fulfillment before reneging to deliver efficient governing outcomes overtime.
