The Malian government has banned the activities of French-funded NGOs.
In a press release published on Monday, the Malian government announced a ban on the activities of NGOs funded by France. This decision, which takes effect immediately, concerns not only French NGOs but also all those “ operating in Mali with funding from France “, or even simply ” with the material or technical support of France “.
For the time being, the list of NGOs concerned has not been established. But many Malian NGOs may also be concerned. This decision by the Malian authorities follows the decision by France to cut off development aid intended for Mali. Paris had mentioned in particular links with the private security group, Wagner. For Bamako, this decision is a non-event.
