Voters in Cape Verde go to the polls for an election.
It is announced that Cape Verde will allocate a budget of $85 million to combat the effects of the war in Ukraine, which has caused an increase in the prices of gasoline and food, as 9% of Cape Verdeans are currently facing a food crisis.
Colombian businessman Alex Saab is extradited to the United States from Cape Verde ahead of an initial court appearance in Florida on October 18 over his alleged money laundering for the Venezuelan government.
The Supreme Court of Cape Verde approves the extradition of Alex Saab to the United States for alleged money laundering on behalf of the Venezuelan government. Saab was arrested in Cape Verde in June 2020, when his plane stopped there for refuelling while flying to Iran.
