‘Guptaleaks’ said to reveal graft within South Africa’s government

In tonight's edition, the “Guptaleaks” claim to reveal graft within the South African government, and drought hits the residents of Cape Town as draconian restrictions are put into place to save water. We also speak to Bineta Diop about the role of women in transforming Africa.

South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma is under the spotlight again as a leak of confidential documents appears to back up long-held allegations that those in his inner circle, including the powerful Gupta family, may have undue influence in the government and profit from the awarding of state contracts.

And Cape Town has cut back on its use of water as the South African tourist hotspot struggles with its worst drought in a century.

And finally, feminine wiles are a force to be reckoned with. We speak to one of the organisers of a meeting in New York which has gathered some of Africa’s top business, political and industry female leaders - all of whom believe that more women are needed to drive transformation across the African continent.
