Ex-Ivorian First Lady Simone Gbabgo to launch new party Saturday

African Editors’ sources have confirmed that Ivory Coast former First Lady Simone Gbagbo is set to launch a new political party Saturday ahead of crucial 2025 general elections.

The former Ivorian first lady Simone Gbagbo attended a launch event of a political movement to support her, a step further towards creating her own political party for the 2025 presidential election in September 2021.


She emphasized her “vision of a strong, sovereign, reconciled, modern and prosperous Côte d’Ivoire”, hammering out the national motto “Union, discipline, work”.

“The first thing I invite you to do is to become zealous and dynamic actors of forgiveness and reconciliation. This pact was called “my capable husband”, but today we women say that the husband must be capable, but he is not the only one who must be capable, the wife must also be capable,” Simone said.

In June, Mr. Gbagbo returned to Abidjan on the arm of another woman, Nady Bamba, his partner since the early 2000s, and filed for divorce from Simone. He also intends to launch a new party in October.

But in the hearts of supporters, it is difficult to separate the couple politically.

“She knows politics, she is trained, she knows politics well, so if she could one day be the president of Ivory Coast, there is no problem.,” a supporter said.

Thierry Sery, supporter of the Mouvement des générations capables :

“This is the time to support the person, she has done everything for us, she has lived through difficult times for the Ivory Coast,” another supporter said.

The International Criminal Court in July said it had dropped its arrest warrant for Ivory Coast’s former first lady Simone Gbagbo.

She also received amnesty from President Ouattara after an Ivorian court sentenced her to 20 years imprisonment in 2015 after she was charged with undermining state security.
