Crowds are jubilating at Independence Square in Bamako, Mali, and other places.

For nearly three months, demonstrations demanding for Keita’s resignation were held.

Dozens lost their lives, a situation that worsened the crisis.

Keita’s removal comes amid the intervention by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

Leaders met late July but failed to achieve a truce.

ECOWAS insists it could no order a sitting president to vacate office.

In July, the United Nations (UN), European Union (EU), African Union (AU) condemned government’s use of lethal force on protesters.
