1. Ivory Coast First Lady to be Tried in Absentia
November 17, 2016

An Ivory Coast court has ruled that former first lady Simone Gbagbo will be tried in absentia for crimes against humanity after she and her defense team refused to appear. Her husband, Laurent Gbagbo, is being tried at the Hague, but Ivory Coast refused to transfer his wife. Now amid uncertainty over the future of the ICC in Africa, her trial may point to some of the challenges national courts face in dealing with these cases.   As the judge announced his decision Wednesday not to......

2. Ivory Coast's Ouattara Enacts New Constitution as 'Promise of Peace'
November 08, 2016

President Alassane Ouattara signed a new constitution into law on Tuesday, casting it as the way to a peaceful future for Ivory Coast, which has emerged as one of Africa's rising economic stars after years of violent upheaval. In a referendum last month, voters overwhelmingly endorsed the new charter — one of Ouattara's campaign promises during his re-election bid last year — with some 93 percent of ballots cast for the "Yes" on an official turnout of just over 42......

3. Ivory Coast Court Validates Referendum on New Constitution
November 04, 2016

Ivory Coast's top court on Friday validated the results of a referendum backing a new constitution that President Alassane Ouattara says will  help the country turn the page after a decade of political turmoil. "The constitutional project is adopted," said Mamadou Kone, president of the constitutional court. He rejected a request to annul the referendum from several political parties who boycotted the vote, including that of former president Laurent Gbagbo. An...... (read more)

4. Ivory Coast: Voters Approve New Constitution
November 01, 2016

Ivory Coast voters have approved a new constitution, the electoral commission announced Tuesday. However, the opposition — which had called for a boycott — is contesting the 42 percent official turnout as inflated and, therefore, not legitimate. After two days of tallying the votes, the electoral commission’s official results show 93 percent of voters were in favor of the new constitution, which creates a post of deputy president, sets up a senate, and softens a controversial clause on......

5. Many Ivorians Uninformed on Proposed Constitution
October 28, 2016

A vote on whether to change the constitution is set for Sunday in Ivory Coast, but a lack of public debate about the issues has left many voters frustrated. "We are not informed,” one man said, after being visited by a member of a civil society group working to spread the word on the proposals. “My parents call me from the village, they are not informed. My dad tells me 'What do I vote for? A text I don't know the content of?' We need to be informed in local languages, so...... (read more)

6. IMF Expects Tepid Economic Growth in Sub-Saharan Africa
October 25, 2016

The International Monetary Fund warned on Tuesday that growth in sub-Saharan Africa was likely to slow to its lowest point in more than 20 years, with average growth forecast at just 1.5 percent this year because of lower commodity prices and an unfriendly global economic environment. Countries without significant natural resources such as Ethiopia, Ivory Coast, Kenya and Senegal were performing better as they stood to benefit from lower oil import prices and infrastructure reforms, the......

7. Ivory Coast Police Crack Down on March Against New Constitution
October 20, 2016

Police in Ivory Coast arrested opposition figures and used teargas to disperse demonstrators gathering on Thursday to protest against a new draft constitution due to be voted on in a referendum later this month. President Alassane Ouattara says the new constitution will turn the page on a decade of political turmoil and civil war, but opposition leaders have called the document a step backward for democracy in French-speaking West Africa's largest economy. Police in riot gear broke...... (read more)

8. Ivory Coast Parliament Approves Constitution Change
October 12, 2016

Ivory Coast's parliament has approved changes to the constitution that ease a presidential eligibility requirement at the center of a political crisis that turned deadly.   The majority of parliament members Tuesday voted in favor of a new draft saying candidates must claim Ivorian nationality exclusively and have an Ivorian-born father or mother. Under the existing constitution, both parents of presidential candidates must be Ivorian.   The new draft, presented by...... (read more)

9. Ivorian Parliament OKs Looser Nationality Rule for Presidential Candidates
October 11, 2016

Ivory Coast's parliament on Tuesday approved changing the constitution to ease nationality rules for presidential candidates, a move the government says will end prolonged instability but which the opposition says is undemocratic. Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara promised during his reelection campaign last year to remove the constitution's requirement for presidential candidates to have parents who are both native-born Ivorians — a sore point in a country that has long......

10. President Says New Ivory Coast Constitution Way to ‘Move Past Crisis’
October 05, 2016

Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara presented the draft of the new constitution to parliament Wednesday. Among the reforms is the removal of a clause that helped trigger civil war five years ago.  The clause, Article 35, required that both parents of presidential candidates be natural-born Ivory Coast citizens, according to Reuters. The new constitution would soften that rule.  “The spirit of this draft for the new constitution is to reinforce social cohesion, to assure...... (read more)

11. Ivory Coast Draft Constitution Amends Clause at Heart of Civil War
October 03, 2016

Ivory Coast voters will decide this month whether to soften a nationality clause that helped trigger a decade-long political crisis, a draft of a new constitution showed Monday. President Alassane Ouattara promised during his campaign for re-election last year to change the language of an article in the constitution which states the parents of presidential candidates must both be natural-born Ivorians. Ivorian nationality was at the heart of a crisis that began with a 1999 coup and...... (read more)

12. France Remembers Victims of Terror Attacks in Paris Ceremony
September 19, 2016

13. Obama Lifts Sanctions Against Ivory Coast, Citing Progress
September 14, 2016

U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday lifted decade-old  sanctions against Ivory Coast, the world's biggest cocoa producer, citing a successful presidential election last year and its progress in tackling illegal trafficking of arms and natural resources. The sanctions were imposed in February 2006 under President George W. Bush against Ivory Coast political figures for  blocking a 2003 peace process. The country had been split in two since a 2002 civil war launched by...... (read more)

14. Ivory Coast Wins First Olympic Gold Ever
August 20, 2016

Ivory Coast won its first Olympic gold medal in history on Friday in Rio. Taekwondo athlete Cheick Cisse won gold after defeating a Tunisian competitor in the finals. Earlier in the day, teammate Ruth Gbagbi won a bronze medal. Prior to that, the West African nation had only won a single Olympic medal - a silver - in track and field 32 years ago. The historic victory was received with a lot of emotion in Ivory Coast, said Amadou Ouattara, secretary-general of the Ivorian Taekwondo...... (read more)

15. Ivorian Children Join Digital Revolution
August 15, 2016

Lined up along the wall of what used to be a living room, a dozen children — some as young as 10 — are focused on their computer screen, trying to make an animated cat come alive electronically. "How will the cat move? We are going to program it to move," their teacher tells them. A few clicks, and the orange animal is walking across the screen. The one-story house in Ivory Coast is home to the Baby Lab, a play on words with "Babi," Abidjan's nickname. The...... (read more)

16. Ivorian Children Join the Digital Revolution
August 15, 2016

The “fab lab” movement continues to sweep Africa. These digital workshops have been opening across the continent, including one in Ivory Coast for young children, called the Baby (pronounced “bah-bee”) Lab. Kids there are learning to use open source software and build new electronic devices from e-waste. Emilie Iob has the story for VOA from Abidjan.... (read more)

17. Constitutional Referendum in Ivory Coast Sparks Controversy
August 12, 2016

Ivory Coast is headed for a constitutional referendum in October. President Alassane Ouattara backs the initiative, which would create a senate and a new post of deputy president, but the opposition does not share his enthusiasm. One of the main reasons to reform the current constitution, Ouattara has said, is to remove a contentious article on nationality that played a role in years of civil war in the West African nation. Ouattara's political opponents used the article on...... (read more)

19. Taking Shea From Cottage Industry to Big Business in Ivory Coast
August 09, 2016

KORHOGO, IVORY COAST— From cosmetics to cooking, shea butter is popular around the world. It is made from the nut of the shea tree, known as "women's gold” in Africa for it provides income to millions of women across the Sahel. In northern Ivory Coast, women are trying to transform shea butter from a cottage industry into big business. It’s harvest season for karité, or shea, in northern Ivory Coast, and just like every year, Alice Koné picks up the fallen fruit. She processes the kernels in the traditional way her grandmother taught her.  It will take her ho... (read more)

20. 2 Ivorian Soldiers Get Jail Time in Connection With Grand-Bassam Attack
August 05, 2016

ABIDJAN, IVORY COAST— Two soldiers in Ivory Coast have been sentenced to 10 years in prison in connection with a deadly al-Qaida attack in the beach resort town of Grand-Bassam last March.

Grand-Bassam, Ivory Coast... (read more)

21. Ivorian Chocolate Makers Promote Locally-made Chocolate
July 29, 2016

ABIDJAN— Ivory Coast is the world's top producer of cocoa, but hardly any of it is processed into chocolate there. Instead, the cocoa is sent abroad to chocolate makers in Europe and elsewhere. This is a general problem throughout Africa — massive exports of raw materials but few finished goods. In Abidjan, several Ivorian entrepreneurs are working to change that formula — one 100 percent Ivorian chocolate bar at a time. The Ivorian flag proudly embroidered on her cook suit, chocolate maker Suzanne Kabbani is putting the latest touches on a special selection ... (read more)

23. West African Coastal Towns Swallowed by Ocean
July 13, 2016

GRAND-LAHOU, IVORY COAST— Rising sea levels and coastal erosion are threatening the homes and livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people across West Africa. Grand-Lahou, an Ivorian tourist destination, is slowly being washed away. The waves are swallowing the coastline of Grand-Lahou’s old town, located about 100 kilometers west of Abidjan, at a pace of one to two meters a year. Eugène Koffi has spent his entire life on this shrinking patch of land between sea and lagoon, called Lahou-Kpanda.  The sea used to be back there, two kilometers away, said Koffi, pointing h...

24. Activists: HIV Treatment Lagging in West Africa
July 11, 2016

ABIDJAN— The prevalence of HIV/AIDS is relatively low in West Africa compared to the rest of Africa, but treatment rates there are equally low, say activists and health care workers. In Ivory Coast, about two-thirds of people living with HIV/AIDS are not on antiretroviral treatment. Stéphane Alliali Dié Kouamé walks one neighborhood in Abidjan every day to visit people living with HIV/AIDS. "I encourage you to take your treatment so you can get better. Have they already done the last test for the child?" Kouamé asks a woman holding a baby. "No, but I have the first o... (read more)
