Malian political scientist says country's current situation predictable

BAMAKO, March 22 (Xinhua) -- Mali's current political crisis was predictable, according to Dr. Mamadou Bagayoko, a Malian political scientist who spoke to Xinhua on phone from Bamako on Thursday.

"Whenever an internal situation gets to an antagonistic level, any form of implosion or explosion or even a revolt is possible. The current situation is an internal implosion of soldiers which normally leads to a coup d'etat," he said in his analysis.

"There were no more values in Mali and a coup d'etat was predictable. I am not at all surprised," Bagakoyo said.

In his opinion, "the only way to end the current political impasse is to quickly restore the state authority and credibility. This is because state authority can only be achieved through its credibility."

He told leaders that it was important for them to use this historical opportunity to start serving and developing the Malian nation.

"For better handling of this situation, we must see how we resolved such crises in the past. I am not speaking about organizing a national conference but a high level technical and open forum (may be we call it a patriotic forum) must be organized, " he said.

Bagayoko said such a forum will enable all the Malians who have been marginalized and all those who do not belong to any political party to come and speak for Mali and not for a party or a group of individuals.

The political scientist noted that his analysis of the current situation was technical and not political.

He warned his fellow Malian citizens against falling in the trap of engaging in blame game where they start accusing certain individuals for the current political situation.
