Thomas Sankara, the Che Guevara of Burkina Faso 2019-07-06 오전 2:23:00

Thomas Sankara, the great leader of Africa, renamed Upper Volta Burkina Faso, which means "a country of honest people" after he was sworn in as the fifth president of the Republic of Upper Volta. Among the significant economic policies he carried out was the "self-management policy," which rejected the stereotype that the central government should control everything, divided the country into 30 autonomous districts and gave extensive autonomous right to each region, and even allowed residents to manage their autonomous districts on their own. Sankara implemented this policy to get closer to the public. The self-management policy has significantly eliminated Burkina Faso's ethnic conflicts, and the economy has been revived to the point of transforming into a self-sufficient state after four years since Sankara came to power. In addition, Sankara implemented reformative measures that advocated gender equality, including banning polygamy and encouraging contraception. Moreover, he organized reforestation by promoting a tree-planting campaign to restore the natural environment of the devastated Burkina Faso, planting 10 million trees in the capital Ouagadougou. The U.S. CIA, which considered Sankara as a danger for promoting advanced policies in almost every way, succeeded in capturing his colleague, Blaise Compaoré. In 1987, Sankara met Jean Ziegler and asked him, "How old did Che Guevara live up to?" as if he had a direct feeling of his death approaching. In October of that year, Blaise Compaoré carried out a counter-revolutionary coup d'etat and murdered Sankara.
