Laurent Gbagbo will not immediately throw himself into the political arena. In front of the FPI executives, Gbagbo indicated that he would take a time of rest, but above all, will meditate, to mourn his mother who died a few years ago.
During his speech to FPI officials, it is a very leggy Laurent Gbagbo who wanted to stand up to deliver a few words. Highly anticipated, the politician wanted to be quiet. However, he gave some details on his short and medium term agenda.
Gbagbo first wants to take time to rest. He made this clear to his executives gathered in the HQ conference room. Then, Gbagbo announced that he would go to meditate at his mother’s grave in the Gagnoa region. He thus intends to sacrifice to a ritual that he was unable to perform, the Ivorian authorities having in his time refused to grant him this favor.
Laurent Gbagbo who came out for a moment harangued his supporters then shut himself up with some of his relatives including his son-in-law. All the while, supporters kept coming to Cocody to try and see him.
