SHORT HISTORY: Guinea was first French West Africa country to gain independence in 1958 and  the "father of independence"  Sekou Toure, ruled unchallenged for 26 years  with an accusation of killing over 50,000 people while in  power. After the death of Sekou Toure, in 1984, Lansana Conte took over until his death in late 2008, was succeeded by Dadis Camara, after a bloodless coup d'etat. Dadis Camara reign saw on September 28, 2009, the massacre of at least 156 opposition supporters by security forces in Conakry and subsequent months saw an assassination attempt on him leading to hospitalization in Morocco and subsequent exile in Burkina Faso. And this pave way for General Sékouba Konate to take over and following an accord in Burkina Faso, a caretaker government headed by Jean-Marie Dore as prime minister    was put in place paving the way for the historical 27th June 2010 elections. The military have given their word to conduct peaceful elections and accept the final results.
