Ebola a wake-up call for Africa – Graça Machel

Nelson Mandela’s widow Graça Machel said the Ebola epidemic should be a wake-up call for African leaders, saying it had exposed the “extreme weakness” of African institutions.

In an address on the impact on business of an epidemic which has claimed more than 5 400 lives in west Africa, Machel said the heavy toll was “unacceptable”.
