The cause of death was not yet known.

Having come to power in September 2013 and being re-elected in 2018, Keita was overthrown on Aug. 18, 2020, by the National Committee for the Salvation of the People (CNSP) after months of street protests to challenge his regime.

Shortly after the coup d’etat that overthrew him, the junta granted him all the benefits for a former president of the Republic of Mali.
