Ahmadou Tounkara at the house in Conakry where his father was arrested and subsequently executed by the Sekou Toure regime.
'My father was Tibou Tounkara, the delegate minister of the Forest Region. After the attempted coup led by Portuguese troops in 1970, they arrested him and executed him in July 1971. At that time 17 out of the 24 Ministers were arrested. Until 1984 I always hoped I would see my father again. It was very hard for us not knowing. In order to have reconciliation here we first need the truth. Guinea is a sad country. People look at each other like strangers.'
