Almost 10,000 Tanzanian civil servants sacked over forged education certificates

In tonight's edition: almost 10,000 Tanzanian civil servants are dismissed over forged education certificates; in East Africa an outbreak of armyworm caterpillars damage maize crops; and we take a look at the South African contemporary art scene through the work of rising star Athi-Patra Ruga.

"They robbed us like common criminals". Angry words from Tanzania's president as he fires nearly 10,000 civil servants found to have faked education qualifications.

Also, parts of East Africa are hit by an armyworm invasion. The outbreak is threatening to destroy crops, with potentially catastrophic consequences in a region already dealing with drought and even famine.

Plus we meet South African artist Athi-Patra Ruga, a rising star on the contemporary art scene, with an eye-catching exhibition in Paris at the Louis Vuitton Foundation for Contemporary Art.
