(New York, 24 August 2016) The United Nations Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, Adama Dieng, expressed his concern at inflammatory statements by public officials that could constitute incitement to violence including, most recently, by a senior official of the ruling CNDD-FDD political party.
News in Brief
In the Democratic Republic of Congo, preparatory talks for a national dialogue were started by facilitator Edem Kodjo on August 23 in order to relieve the political tensions in the country.
However, few key members of the opposition attended and the “Rassemblement” umbrella called for a nationwide “ville-morte”.
The call was answered in some parts of Kinshasa, but ignored in other big Congolese cities. During the demonstrations in Kinshasa, two people were injured and 32 people were arrested.
WFP’s main priority is to provide food assistance to refugees, safety net assistance to the most vulnerable and build national capacity to design and manage home-grown hunger solutions.
Sufficient resources are needed to provide food assistance to the growing number of refugees in camps and to treat and prevent malnutrition among children, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
School feeding in camps and in food-insecure districts ensures children are getting meals, maintaining attendance and reduces dropouts.
