Malian Junta Bans All French NGOs

An interesting piece of news broke this past Monday when the Malian junta announced a move to ban all NGOs funded or supported by France.

The interim Prime Minister of Mali, Colonel Abdoulaye Maiga justified this ban by pointing to France’s recent suspension of development assistance to Mali.

Now the French halted this support because of the junta’s utilization of the infamous Russian PMC Wagner group.

The junta has denied using the services of Wagner PMC.
