Ivory Coast former first lady, Simone Gbagbo has launched a political movement to support her towards creating her own political party for the 2025 presidential election.
In a speech delivered at the launch of her movement “Mouvement de Generation Capable” in Treichville districts, she emphasized her “vision of a strong, sovereign, reconciled, modern and prosperous Côte d’Ivoire”, hammering out the national motto “Union, discipline, work”.
Simone disclosed that “The first thing I invite you to do is to become zealous and dynamic actors of forgiveness and reconciliation. This pact was called “my capable husband”, but today we women say that the husband must be capable, but he is not the only one who must be capable, the wife must also be capable,
Participants expressed their support for the new development,” She knows politics, she is trained, she knows politics well, so if she could one day be the president of Ivory Coast, there is no problem.,” a supporter said.
“This is the time to support the person, she has done everything for us, she has lived through difficult times for the Ivory Coast,” another supporter said.
The International Criminal Court in July said it had dropped its arrest warrant for Ivory Coast’s former first lady Simone Gbagbo.
She also received amnesty from President Ouattara after an Ivorian court sentenced her to 20 years in prison in 2015 after she was charged with undermining state security.
