Kenyan opposition boycotts opening of parliament

In tonight's bulletin: Kenya's opposition boycotts the opening session of parliament; South Africa's Jacob Zuma suffers a setback after a court ruled that the election of a faction loyal to him in his home province two years ago was invalid; and thousands of students find themselves homeless in Ivory Coast's Abidjan.

Kenya's opposition boycotts the opening session of parliament, which is presided over by Kenyatta after the Supreme Court cancelled the result of last month's presidential election and ordered a fresh vote.

South Africa's Jacob Zuma suffers a setback after a court ruled that the election of a faction loyal to him in his home province two years ago was invalid.

In Ivory Coast's Abidjan, with just a few weeks until the start of the academic year, thousands of students find themselves homeless. The halls of residence were ordered to close by the government six years ago.
