"There is no money to complete the reinsertion of the ex-combatants," a front-page headline in Fraternite Matin quotes the coordinator of the National Reintegration Program (PNRRC) as saying.
Daniel Ouattara, who was speaking to the paper (p. 7), disclosed that the budget for the reintegration program is estimated at 3 billion FCFA (about US $5.8 million) and this money is supposed to be paid by the government. The head of the reintegration program further explained the program has been delayed because the funds provided by the government are insufficient.
