EYE ON AFRICA

All the news from Africa and the Maghreb, with France 24’s correspondents and our guests on set. From Monday to Friday at 9.45 pm and 10.45 pm Paris time.

Kenya's ruling party moves to amend election law ahead of presidential re-run

In tonight's edition: Kenya's ruling party moves to amend election law ahead of the presidential re-run; a professor denounces a fake diplomas scandal in DR Congo; and we take you to a photo exhibition in Paris highlighting Guineans' ordeal during the 2009 stadium massacre in Conakry.

Divisions deepen between the ruling party and the opposition in Kenya as President Uhuru Kenyatta's lawmakers try to change electoral law ahead of next month’s presidential poll rerun.

Also, all of the credit but none of the work: we hear from a professor from DR Congo who's spoken exclusively to FRANCE 24 about his concerns over the allegedly widespread practice of handing out fake degrees and qualifications to his country’s political and military elite.

And eight years after soldiers massacred 156 people and raped dozens of women at a Conakry stadium, FRANCE 24 meets one woman still struggling with the trauma of that day. She heads to an exhibition in Paris that highlights the long-term effects suffered by those affected by the violence.
