he's joining us from the swedish capsules mrs harvey great to have you on africa i'm in twenty fifteen madea's government signed a peace agreement with some of the armed groups but the jihad just remained active why was that process simmering seemingly ineffective. well there are twenty fifteen or twenty five. he's addressing one part of the goal we should refer to the. independence of your chain of your old. records approach to two thousand and twelve it seems to the twelve o'clock that has evolved as you said we know are you up to speed he had sectors operating normally valued at no central that's not being addressed by the p.c. games right so i mean as you say there it is a complex mix of plot the sort of the tribalism issues you've now got the jihadist threat and i wondered if that complicates any effort to try and get to quash this
