Kenya nurses strike: Deal with unions remains unsigned

In tonight's edition: Kenyan nurses enter their fifth week of strikes; a Senegalese app called "Jokkosanté" fights medicine waste and fakes; and ostriches are back in Mali.

The five-week-long strike by Kenya's nurses continues, as a deal between unions and the government hits a roadblock and remains unsigned.

Also, we tell you about a new app which makes it easier for people to obtain genuine medicines - not the fakes flooding the African continent.

And the big birds return. After being poached to near-extinction in Mali, wild ostriches are on track for a comeback. We bring you an exclusive report from our correspondents.
