Zahra Moloo talks to Maurice Fahe, an independent researcher from Ivory Coast [mp3] and a member of the World Forum for Alternatives. Fahe talks about the current situation in the Ivory Coast, following explosive elections in November 2010, which led to the formation of two governments and two presidents assuming power. He says this has led to serious consequences on conditions of life in the country, including an increase in inflation and the cost of food. Fahe also explains the concept of ‘Ivorité’ in a country where much of the population is not indigenous and talks about the continued colonisation of the country as ordinary Ivorians continue to fight for a more just society.
