Africa 360 addresses Mali aid


The African Union and West Africa’s regional block, The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) have been heavily criticised for their lack of response to the crisis in Mali.

African leaders have now made several commitments to address the situation after the recent 20 African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Commitments include financial contributions to the African-led International Support Mission to Mali (AFISMA).

This week Chris Maroleng, eNCA Africa editor, speaks to Dr Adekeye Adebajo from the Centre for Conflict Resolution to establish whether this financial contribution could indicate a turning point in Africa’s efforts to resolve its own crises.

Africa 360 airs on eNCA on DSTV Channel 403 on Saturday 2 February at 11h30 CAT and repeats on Saturday 2 February at 21h30, Sunday 3 February at 16h30 and 20h30, Monday 4 February at 12h30, Tuesday 5 February at 23h30 and Wednesday 6 February at 9h30.
