Kenya’s opposition leader to take poll dispute to Supreme Court

In tonight’s edition: Kenya's opposition leader Raila Odinga has decided to take his poll dispute to the country’s top court, and Zimbabwe’s first lady is seeking diplomatic immunity after being accused of assaulting a model in South Africa. In DR Congo, cocoa planters are forming cooperatives to increase their profits.

The leader of Kenya’s opposition is challenging the results of last week’s presidential election in the country’s Supreme Court and is calling for a campaign of civil disobedience. Raila Odinga remains convinced that his defeat was due to hacking.

Also, South Africa is wrestling with the delicate decision of whether to grant diplomatic immunity to Grace Mugabe, the first lady of neighbouring Zimbabwe, after she became the suspect of an alleged assault on a model in Johannesburg.

And cocoa farmers in the Democratic Republic of Congo have suffered a massive income drop after the price of their crops began to plummet in 2015. In Inongo, small holders and farmers are turning to each other and combining resources in a bid to boost their chances of finding buyers and to improve their working conditions.
