Topic - The UN in Côte d'Ivoire

estivoautumnal - on 17 Nov 2012
I've just spent the last month In Abidjan and the level of UN presence is amazingly high for a semi stable country. The high numbers of machine gun toting Ivorian soldiers can surely hold off any attacks from the north, but that's not my point. The UN who it seems keep Toyota's Landcruiser division in profit aren't really doing much. They seem to spend most of their time shopping and taxi-ing friends around the city. Can anyone with more knowledge on the subject (which won't be difficult) set me straight on this? Just what do the UN do in Abidjan?

80p for a beer. 20p for Gordon's gin. Lovely friendly people. Great jungle scenery and wildlife. Maybe one day it will get on the tourist map.
