The Guardian: Mali gives top job to U.N. executive accused of ‘tolerating harassment’
“A senior U.N. official accused of ‘tolerating harassment and abuse of authority’ has been appointed health minister in Mali. Michel Sidibé faced pressure to stand down from his position as head of UNAIDS following criticism over his handling of a sexual assault allegation made against one of his deputies. … Sidibé was appointed Mali’s new health minister by president Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, who announced a new government on Sunday” (Ratcliffe, 5/8).
