[Guinean news] Ailing Conté refuses return visit to Switzerland

A few months ago, this blog reported on the very ailing Gen. Lansana Conté's visit to Switzerland for medical treatment.

Recently, the magazine Jeune Afrique reported that Conté refused a follow up visit to Switzerland, despite the pleas of the two most powerful members of his entourage.

The pan-African weekly has also reported on serious divisions within the Guinean armed forces.
