Guinea coup chief vows 'union' govt, no 'witch hunt'

Lieutenant-colonel Mamady Doumbouya, the high-ranking officer behind Guinea's military coup promised on Monday to set up a unity government to oversee a transition period and vowed there would be no "witch hunt" against the former government.

"A consultation will be launched to set down the broad parameters of the transition, and then a government of national union will be established to steer the transition," Lieutenant-colonel Mamady Doumbouya said in a speech, but he did not say how long the consultation or the handover would last.

Seeking to reassure mining investors a day after the military seized power, Lieutenant-colonel Mamady Doumbouya also said the country would honour its business commitments.

A committee set up by the junta assures "economic and financial partners that activities in the country are continuing as normal," Lieutenant Colonel Mamady Doumbouya said in a speech.

"The committee assures partners that it will respect all its undertakings," he said.
