Djibouti elections 2021
Djibouti's veteran ruler Ismail Omar Guelleh has been re-elected for a fifth term as president with more than 98 percent of the vote. This is according to provisional results announced early on Saturday, after the election in the tiny but strategically important country was boycotted by the main opposition. About 215,000 citizens were registered to vote in the ballot pitting Guelleh, 73, against a little-known businessman widely seen as posing scant threat to the strongman, who has been in power since 1999. For more on this, Channel Africa's Zikhona Miso spoke to Hafsa Halawa, Political Adviser and Analyst on the Horn of Africa.
