African leaders embark on a mission to resolve political crisis in Mali

Five African leaders are enroute to Mali with the objective of making a new attempt at ending Mali’s political unrest with protesteors demanding the resignation of the country’s   embattled president.

 
The presidents of Senegal, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Niger are set to meet the Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and members of the opposition June 5 Movement on Thursday 23rd July in the capital Bamako, according to an official programme.
 
Keita has been locked for weeks in a standoff with the June 5 Movement that spiralled into violent clashes earlier this month, leaving 11 dead.
 
The movement -- which insists that Keita resign -- has tapped into public anger over the leader's perceived failure to tackle the dire economy, corruption and an eight-year jihadist conflict.
 
Malians are also incensed at the disputed outcome of long-delayed parliamentary elections in March and April that handed victory to Keita's party.
 
The African presidents on Thursday follow on the heels of an earlier five-day mediation mission from the 15-nation Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), which ended on Sunday without reconciling the two sides.
 
The group of presidents is expected to weigh in on -- and potentially sign off on -- solutions to the impasse floated in behind-the-scenes talks between the president and opposition figures this week.
