African Development Bank's alternative capital caught in crossfire

"The 2010 Annual Meetings of the African Development Bank (AFDB) Group opened on Thursday, 27 May 2010 in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire. The meeting brought over 2000 delegates together in the city of Abidjan, which remains the institution's statutory Headquarters, though the Bank was forced to temporarily relocate to Tunis, Tunisia following outbreaks of violent in Cote d'Ivoire. The meeting had in attendance Governors representing 53 African and 24 non-African shareholders. The meeting also re-elected the Bank Group's President, Donald Kaberuka, for a second five-year term, and increased the institution's number of constituency chairs from 18 to 20."
