Malian PM: If Mali is a ‘sick man’, is France a failed physician? , Politics
Choguel Kokalla Maiga on Mali’s safety disaster, protection cooperation with Russia and the pending constitutional reform.
Regardless of a spiraling safety disaster, French troops left Mali after a nine-year deployment.
The withdrawal got here after the army took energy in 2020 and demanded all French troops depart Malian territory.
Since then, Mali’s army leaders have turned to Moscow for protection and financial cooperation.
And the interim authorities has postponed a constitutional referendum to re-establish democratic rule.
So, will the army transition to civilian rule? Or will it prolong its grip on energy?
