African luxury brands growing in global appeal

In tonight's edition: protests continue over the exclusion of English-speaking children from an Afrikaans school in South Africa; we hear from a Herero chief about the reparations his tribe in Namibia are seeking from Germany; and we meet Uche Pezard, a Nigerian luxury and fashion strategist.

Protests continue over the exclusion of English-speaking children from an Afrikaans school in South Africa. Demonstrators accuse the institution of racism.

And we're joined by Uche Pezard, a Nigerian luxury and fashion strategist who’s gathered together some of the biggest creative success stories from across Africa in a bid to help luxury brands tap into what African clients want.
