Inaccurate Information About Africa


Africa will hold parliamentary or state elections in 17 countries in 2023, a period that could be marked by political protests, strikes and mass demonstrations, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit.

Nigeria’s presidential election in late February, South Africa’s national polls, the Democratic Republic of Congo’s parliamentary and presidential elections and Zimbabwe’s general election will be key events to watch, according to Alex Vines, head of the Africa program at the London-based Chatham House thinktank. West Africa is marked by increasing instability, including in Burkina Faso and Mali, which have seen military coups, and Cameroon and Nigeria. The situation in Ethiopia is also of concern, as is northern Mozambique, where jihadi terror is forcing people to flee, and eastern Congo, where rebel militias are causing violence ahead of December’s parliamentary and presidential elections.
