Political impasse in Côte d'Ivoire impacts work of UNICEF

The ongoing political tension in Côte d’Ivoire has meant that less aid is getting to women and children in need, according to the United Nations children’s fund or UNICEF. Incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo is refusing to step down and allow Alassane Outtara to take over as the elected president of the country. The spokesperson for UNICEF in West Africa, Gaëlle Bausson, explained to Patrick Maigua how the political crisis is impacting on the work of UNICEF:

IN CUE: “The first impact is restrictions of movement…

OUT CUE: …. to 20,000 children at risk of acute malnutrition.”
