Liberia Economy

More than 300 chiefs representing Liberia’s rural and traditional bloc have called on the president to set up a war and economic crimes court as part of measures to fight impunity that has impeded the growth of Africa’s oldest independent republic. In their statement, released at the close of a week-long gathering in the capital, the chiefs expressed disappointment over the government’s handling of millions of U.S. dollars since George Weah assumed the presidency. This includes $104 million in newly-minted local banknotes and $25 million withdrawn from the Federal Reserve accounts for infusion into the economy to strengthen the local currency.
For more on this, particularly what should be done to stimulate Liberia’s Economy, Channel Africa’s Khumbelo Munzhelele spoke to James Otto, from Liberia’s Sustainable Development Institute.

Sierra Leone Visas

Sierra Leone has become the latest African country to announce a new visa policy that gives visa on arrival for all African nationals and other selected citizens from across the world. Although many were expecting the government to waive or abolish visa charges as in other popular tourist destinations in the region, such as The Gambia and Senegal, this is seen as a good step, which could lead to more people traveling to the West African country. The Sierra Leone government is losing an estimated $100 million in revenue every year, as a result of low tourist numbers.
For more on this, Channel Africa spoke to Adeyemi Paul, Sierra Leonean Journalist.

The Juwa opposition party in the Comoros says it does not recognise last Sunday presidential elections

The Juwa opposition party in the Comoros says it does not recognise last Sunday presidential elections. People in Comoros took to the polls in the islands of the Indian Ocean archipelago's presidential elections, where incumbent Azali Assoumani is widely expected to win a new term in a vote that rivals say has been hijacked.

Somalia expresses concerns following withdrawal of Kenyan Forces from the Jubaland camp

Somalia has expressed its concerns following the abrupt withdrawal of Kenya Defence Forces from the only remaining camp in Jubaland saying the move will expose the country to Al-Shabaab threats. Kenyan troops have reportedly started withdrawing from Somalia after moving out of their command centre in Busar, north of Jubaland. The Kenyan government has not provided reasons for the troops withdrawal, but there are reports that the withdrawal is due to a funding problem for The African Union Mission in Somalia-AMISOM. Despite the militants being driven out of the Somali capital Mogadishu several years ago, they've managed to regroup in rural areas where they continue to launch attacks.

For more on this, Channel Africa's Khumbelo Munzhelele spoke to Kwezi Mngqibisa, Co-ordinator of Somalia project initiative at The African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of disputes-ACCORD.
