Kenya: autopsies of the investigation into a sect begin  Kenyan pathologists on Monday began autopsiing the bodies of those found dead as part of the investigation into a religious cult.  These members of the international Good News church starved themselves to death believing that this would lead them to heaven.  101 bodies were found in shallow graves in Shakahola Forest.  A few people, who were found alive, died on the way to the hospital.  Authorities say most of the bodies found so far are children.  DNA samples from more than 100 corpses will therefore be taken in order to compare them with those of relatives who have reported the disappearance of their loved ones.  More than 300 people were missing.  On Monday investigators said 10 autopsies had been carried out, including 9 children aged 18 months to 10 years and one adult woman.  A Kenyan pathologist said the bodies showed signs of starvation and in some cases asphyxiation.  This Christian-inspired sect was founded by Paul Mackenzie Nthenge, a former taxi driver. He is in custody and would refuse to drink and eat.           Ivory Coast: Simone Gbagbo asks "forgiveness" to the victims of the 2010 crisis  The former First Lady of Côte d'Ivoire, Simone Gbagbo, asked "forgiveness" to the victims of several violent political crises, during a meeting in Bouaké (center) on Sunday, a few months before regional and local elections and two years from the presidential election.  “I once again want to ask for forgiveness from the whole nation and from all those who suffered terrible suffering, who lost parents, jobs and were forced into exile,” she said in Bouaké , stronghold of the armed rebellion that attempted in 2002 to overthrow the regime of former president Laurent Gbagbo , her ex-husband.  The rebellion , made up of militias, had taken control of the northern half of the country for several years. "I grant my forgiveness to all those who have caused harm to the Ivorian nation and to my person" , "to my relatives" and to his "political family" , she added.  "I urge all the political leaders of Côte d'Ivoire to follow me in this exercise" , she continued, in front of thousands of activists and sympathizers of her party, the Movement of Capable Generations (MGC).

Simone Gbagbo demanded, in addition, the return of the leader of the 2002 rebellion, Guillaume Soro , now in exile and sentenced to life imprisonment by Côte d'Ivoire in June 2021 in connection with an attempted insurrection in 2019.  It is, according to her, in the "interest" of Côte d'Ivoire " that he returns to the country and that he has the opportunity to participate in the process of national reconciliation" , initiated by the current head of the State Alassane Ouattara , specifying that she "did not approve" of Mr. Soro's "role" during the 2002 crisis, but that she "forgave" him .  Sentenced in 2015 in Côte d'Ivoire to 20 years in prison for "undermining state security" , for acts related to the post-electoral crisis of 2010-2011, Simone Gbagbo had benefited from the national reconciliation process by an amnesty law in 2018.  Alassane Ouattara's victory in the 2010 presidential election, contested by the outgoing Laurent Gbagbo, led to five months of crisis and left 3,000 dead.  Deploring a lack of "transparency" and "equity" , Ms. Gbagbo also asked for a postponement of the regional and municipal elections scheduled for September 2023, the first in which her party, created in 2022, will take part.
