South African President Zuma accuses protesters of racism

In tonight's edition, South Africa’s Zuma accuses protesters of being racist and Kinshasa comes to a standstill as a planned demonstration is banned, and finally, the Kenyan government is pushing for companies to adopt renewable energy sources.

In South Africa, Zuma accuses some protesters of racism, branding some of the rallies staged against him as advocating beliefs and values he believed had long been buried.

And on the streets of Kinshasa it is eerily quiet after the government banned public protests as political tensions over delayed elections remain.

Finally, we look at Kenya’s big push for clean energy and power efficiency in new builds. Kenya is one of the leading nations in the continent's push towards solar energy.
