Plusieurs cas de vandalisme et de vols à main armés se sont signalés à Bangui depuis le 15 mars, suite au coup d'Etat commandité par François Bozizé , un ancien chef d’état-major, qui a renversé le Président Ange-Félix Patassé (IRIN )

Eleven member states of a UN consultative committee were due to meet in Yaounde, Cameroon, today to discuss security issues in central Africa, AFP reported. According to a statement issued by the Cameroonian presidency, the meeting would group the leaders of Gabon, Chad, Equatorial Guinea, Central African Republic, Congo-Brazzaville, Congo-Kinshasa, Burundi, Angola, Rwanda, Sao Tome and Principe, and Cameroon. AFP said it was likely some leaders would not attend, but would send representatives instead.

We uncovered the sex abuse scandal that rocked the WHO, but there’s more to do

We just covered a report that says the World Health Organization failed to prevent and tackle widespread sexual abuse during the Ebola response in Congo.

Our investigation with the Thomson Reuters Foundation triggered this probe, demonstrating the impact our journalism can have. 

But this won’t be the last case of aid worker sex abuse. This also won’t be the last time the aid sector has to ask itself difficult questions about why justice for victims of sexual abuse and exploitation has been sorely lacking. 

We’re already working on our next investigation, but reporting like this takes months, sometimes years, and can’t be done alone. 

The support of our readers and donors helps keep our journalism free and accessible for all. Donations mean we can keep holding power in the aid sector accountable, and do more of this.
