Former elephant captain Drogba Didier paid a visit to Ivory Coast’s former first lady, Simone Ehivet Gbagbo, on 27 December, on the banks of the Ebrié lagoon. Many observers commented on this visit of the Ivorian legend. If for some Drogba had chosen his side, the former Ivorian striker has just shown by this visit that he keeps his position of neutrality in the Ivorian political game.
After recently visiting Hamed Bakayoko, a defender of Camp Ouattara, the Ivorian footballer has also taken the initiative to visit Gbagbo camp members, especially his wife.
It was during a stay in Abidjan that Didier Drogba made a visit to the wife of former Ivorian President Laurent Gbagbo. The two Ivorian personalities met in the official residence of Gbagbo’s family in Coocdy-Riviera. It was a courtesy call during which the former Ivorian captain stressed that the future of the country goes through forgiveness, unity, peace and despite differences of opinion.
” This kind of moment makes me even more proud to be Ivorian. The future of this country goes through Forgiveness, Unity Peace and despite our differences of opinion, “wrote Didier Drogba.
Drogba’s silence over the deaths of the FPI barons was condemned by Serge Kassy, a very committed artist alongside Laurent Gbagbo. Especially at the same time, the former striker Marseille had split a video to send his condolences to Minister Hamed Bakayoko who had lost his father.
