Yamoussoukro, dernière étape hier de la visite officielle du Prince Aga Khan entamée mardi 3 mars dernier. Cette ville lui rappelle bien des souvenirs. En choisissant Yamoussoukro comme dernière étape, il la place en premier lieu dans sa mémoire car celui qui fut son conseiller, son ami, y repose: "Houphouet a été un homme de son temps et de tous les temps. Les valeurs qu'il nous laisse sont des valeurs éternelles que nul ne peut effacer de la mémoire des hommes. Il a été un grand et demeure un héros omniprésent dans l'esprit de bien des générations".
