“It will be up to each Malian’s conscience to take stock of what Ibrahim Boubacar Keita found when he assumed office in 2012 and Mali today. And the rest doesn’t matter. The essential thing is that a peaceful, transparent and free election takes place in Mali’‘, he added.

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.
