Malawi activists want MPs to use vernacular language

A civil society group in Malawi wants MPs to be allowed to debate in their vernacular language in parliament.
The Centre for Democracy and Economic Development Initiatives (CDEDI) says the legislators would better express themselves in vernacular than in English.
The centre director Sylvester Namiwa said the people would also understand the debates better if they were in their language.
"We have noted with concern on how some MPs are struggling to express themselves in English, and yet the same people were trusted by their constituents to represent them in the national assembly," Mr Namiwa was quoted as saying by Malawi 24 website.
The Malawi constitution requires one to be able to speak fluent English to qualify to run for MP.

Mali faces more isolation over coup

The International Organisation of La Francophonie (OIF) has suspended Mali from its membership, the latest body to take action following last week's overthrow of Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta's government by the military.
The decision, by the body that represents countries where people speak French, comes days after the regional bloc, the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas) - which also suspended Mali from its membership - held unsuccessful talks with the military junta over a return to democratic rule.
The coup leaders have said they were not interested in holding power and would hold fresh elections within a "reasonable time".
A demand by African heads of state to reinstate former President Keïta is now off the table after he withdrew interest to return as leader.
The OIF has said it will send its own delegation to Mali in a matter of days.

Ethiopia 'disappointed' with UK after embassy protests

Ethiopian Foreign Minister Redwan Hussein has held talks with the UK embassy's charge d’affaires after chaos broke out during protests held outside Ethiopia's embassy in London.
Mr Redwan expressed "disappointment" over security of the embassy.
Ethnic Oromos, Ethiopia's largest ethnic group, have been holding protests outside the embassy since last week to condemn what they term as violation of rights and arrest of opposition leaders in Ethiopia.
The protests have led to the closure of the embassy.
A statement by the embassy said one of its staff members was assaulted by the protesters.
The UK diplomat apologised for the incident and assured that "measures will be taken to ensure the safety and security of the embassy", according to a ministry statement.
Embassy staff who spoke to the BBC on condition of anonymity said that they were staying at home for fear of their safety.
