“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.

Some twenty four candidates are in the running for the presidential elections on 29 July. Analysts see Ibrahim Boubakar Keita and Soumaîla Cissé as favorites.

Northern Mali had fell in March-April 2012 under the guise of jihadist groups linked to al-Qaeda, largely driven out or dispersed by a military intervention launched in January 2013 at the initiative of France and is currently ongoing.

Since the signing of the 2015 agreement, the violence has not only persisted, but has spread from the north, central and south of the country.

PM Abiy reiterates Ethiopia’s decision over latest clampdown.

Published

on

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has finally spoken on ongoing anti-corruption and rights abuse clampdown stating that there was not going to be any backing down let alone retreat.

A statement from the Abiy’s office issued in Amharic tasked citizens to rally behind the development as a means of ridding the country of lawlessness and criminal elements.

State-affiliated FBC reported that the statement titled, ‘Let’s Fight (the) Cancer,’ said the government was bent on bringing people behind injustices to book.



The statement said the underlying objective of recent arrests was to get rid of Ethiopia criminals. “… criminals do not care about ethnicity, country, or morality; they only care for themselves.

“The key to justice is to create a system for innocent citizens to live in freedom and dignity while criminals are held accountable and punished in accordance with the law,” the statement read in part.

New Zealand denies refusing refugees with holiday visas entry.

Published

on

New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, on Friday, rejected allegations that the country’s government was blocking refugees who wished to travel into the country from Nauru on visitor visas.

Nauru’s president, Baron Waqa, also claimed in an interview with Australian media that he had also personally brokered a deal for New Zealand to accept 80 refugees currently located on the island.



“It’s incorrect to say that there is some kind of agreement for 80 specific individuals to take residence or visit,’’ Ardern told media at the East Asia Summit in Singapore.

“The request did not ask about whether refugees could visit New Zealand on holiday visas,’’ he added.

The country is under pressure to transfer the remaining 30 children from the island.
