Biography

Waghef was born in Moudjéria, Mauritania. He was Director-General of the Mauritanian Gas Company (Societé Mauritanienne de Gaz, SOMAGAZ) from January 2003 to August 2003 and then Director of the Banc d’Arguin National Park from September 2003 until he was appointed as Secretary-General of the Ministry of Hydraulics and Energy on 27 October 2004. He served in that capacity until April 2005, at which point he became Director-General of Air Mauritanie, remaining in that post until December 2006. In February 2007, he became Advisor to the Minister of Finance. On 4 August 2008, 25 of ADIL’s 49 deputies in the National Assembly, along with 24 of its 45 senators, announced that they were leaving the party, thereby depriving it of its parliamentary majority..

Waghef said in an interview with Abu Dhabi TV on 20 August that President Abdallahi had dismissed the senior officers because they had already been planning to seize power on 9 August. He subsequently travelled to Nouadhibou in northern Mauritania in order to participate in an anti-coup protest there, but was arrested upon arrival on 21 August 2008. He was reportedly arrested because he left Nouakchott without the junta’s permission. On 22 August, it was announced that he was being taken to his home village of Achram, where he would be kept under house arrest. According to Minister of Decentralization Yahya Ould Kebd, the junta sought to “rein in his activism”, saying that “his contact with the outside will probably be limited but not banned”.

On 30 June 2008, 39 deputies in the National Assembly (out of a total of 95) filed a motion of censure against Waghef’s government. Most of these deputies were from ADIL, although the RFD (the main opposition party) also declared its support for the censure motion. The deputies complained that Waghef’s government had not presented a program and that too many positions in the government had been given to opposition parties and to figures who had served under President Maaouya Ould Sid’Ahmed Taya. 24 senators declared that they were in “unconditional solidarity” with the deputies who filed the censure motion.
