‘Severe Fatigue’ Grounds Ivorian Prime Minister in Paris

Ivory Coast’s Prime Minister, Patrick Achi, is in hospital in the French capital, Paris, where he is reported to be treated for severe fatigue. He is said to be having medical tests.

Mr Achi, a close confidant of President Alassane Ouattara was appointed Prime Minister in March following the death of his predecessor Hamed Bakayoko, who had been receiving treatment for cancer in Germany.

Mr Bakayoko, himself, was appointed following the sudden death of his predecessor Amadou Gon Coulibaly last year.

Achi visited France last week for health reasons but left prematurely to Ivory Coast to join the discussion on electricity problems. He then flew back to Paris on Tuesday.

He is a key figure in the ongoing effort to solve the large power generation deficit that has strained electricity supplies in key urban areas of the country.
