A recent investigation has shown that Saudi Arabia has plans to artificially raise global oil demand, creating a whole host of moral questions about the future of global energy. Saudi Arabia also plans to increase the number of combustion engine vehicles in the Asian and African markets to drive up fuel demand. Saudi Arabia has hardly hidden the fact that it intends to continue pumping crude for as long as possible, so long as the global demand is there. Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman said that Saudi Arabia expects to maintain that level of production if demand permits. Despite the clear ambitions of Saudi Arabia and OPEC to maintain, or even increase, oil output – so long as the demand is there – the recent phrasing of ‘artificially’ creating oil demand has drawn criticism.

Morocco produced 1.2 million tonnes of durum in 2023-24, according to the International Grains Council. Algeria harvested 1.9 million tonnes, down from 2.2 million the previous year, while Tunisia produced 500,000 tonnes, less than half of the 1.1 million taken off in 2022-23. There were also reports that Canada has exported two million tonnes of durum to China, according to Chinese customs data. However, Chinese state-run food company COFCO Group said it has imported durum for the first time for processing into flour, according to Reuters. “This direct import of durum wheat has enriched the structure of China’s imported wheat varieties, facilitated the extension of COFCO’s products upstream and further improved COFCO’s … full industry chain model,” the company said in a statement.

Ali Bongo Ondimba, the ex-leader of Gabon, has rejected all plans forcing him to go into exile without his family members, as his wife and eldest son are hallowing in prison over multiple charges, reports say citing one family member. A junta led by current transitional President Brice Clotaire Oligui Nguema removed Bongo on August 30, putting therefore an end to his 14-year power control. Ali Bongo, according to the family source, believes the former First lady and Noureddin have nothing to do with the charges leveled at them. Ali Bongo is taking full responsibility for charges, the source added. No legal action has been taken against Ali Bongo himself yet.

In a significant development, the regional force of the East African Community (EAC-RF), viewed as ineffective by Kinshasa, has initiated its withdrawal from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) after opting not to renew its mandate. A spokesperson for the EAC-RF on-site confirmed that the plane was heading to Nairobi, carrying only Kenyan military personnel. With the exception of the Burundians, they accused the regional force of coexisting with the rebels rather than compelling them to disarm. A Kenyan soldier from the regional force had been killed on October 24 by shell fragments. In addition to the EAC force, the United Nations mission, MONUSCO, formerly MONUC, has been present in the DRC since 1999.
