Mali government places ban on NGOs and aid groups from France

Mali’s military government announces places a ban on the activities of French funded NGOs. The drastic move came after Paris decided to cut development aid to the West African nation. The interim Prime Minister Colonel Abdoulaye Maiga government said the decision was effective immediately and would also apply to organizations receiving “material or technical support from France.”

France which has been providing a total of 100 million euros each year in assistance to Mali had announced that it would be cut development aid to Mali for alleged use and reliance of paramilitaries from Russian.

This move has since raised alarms in different quarters in Mali of hundreds of thousands of Malian receiving one aid or another from the French government. Mali interim government has maintained that the French narrative remains a fallacy.
