Reactions continue to pour in following news of his death on Wednesday evening.
The Prime Minister, a candidate of the ruling Rally of Houphouëtists for Democracy and Peace party (RHDP), died after suffering a malaise while at the Council of Ministers. He had been evacuated to the International Polyclinic Sainte Anne-Marie (PISAM) in Abidjan.
In a statement on twitter expressing his “deep sorrow”, President Alassane Ouattara paid tribute to “his younger brother, [his] son, Amadou Gon Coulibaly, who was, for thirty years, [his] closest collaborator”, and hailed “the memory of a statesman of great loyalty, devotion and love for his country”, who embodied “this young generation of Ivorian executives of great competence and extreme loyalty to the Nation”.
