Before independence in 1960 the country was a colony of France, which was called Upper Volta, due to location over the river Volta. The first president of the country Mavrytsyya Yameogu overthrew Colonel sangoulé lamizana. It in turn was overthrown in 1980 in a military coup led by CAE Zamba. In 1985, his predecessor, overthrew the 34-year-old Colonel Thomas Sankara, who at the end of the 1970s was one of the founders of the "Communist Officers' Group", which was preparing a coup against sangoulé lamizana. Thomas Sankara banned mnagashlyubnasts and female circumcision, and changed the name of the country to Burkina Faso, which is translated from the tribe language Cosmin Moţi "Burkina" means "honest people" and the word "Faso" with tribal language dyvla - "land of the ancestors", that together it sounds like a "country of honest people." In 1987, as a result of another coup, during which Thomas Sankara was killed and several of his associates, came to power Blaze Campari [4]
