… Case in Point: Ivory Coast

23 Feb

Coincidental with yesterday’s post about Egyptian influence on African Affairs, I heard that Ivory Coast seems to face dire straits as well. First, Laurent Gbagbo refused to step down after losing the Presidential elections a couple of months ago, next public unrest set in and and the not-anymore-government tried to cling on to power and restore order.

Now food prices seem to have exploded, gas is running low, and the military is resorting to violence to control the growing number of people taking to the streets and voicing their discontent.
