Raila Odinga 'sworn in' as alternative president by Kenyan opposition

In tonight's edition: Raila Odinga is "sworn in" as alternative president by Kenya's opposition; the shadow of the Gukurahundi massacre still hangs over Emmerson Mnangagwa; and an appeals court is to set to confirm whether France's national rail operator, SNCF, discriminated against around 800 Moroccan workers hired as private contractors back in the 1970s.

The government warned it would amount to treason, but Raila Odinga went ahead anyway. The Kenyan opposition leader still refuses to accept he lost last October’s presidential election and stages a mock swearing-in ceremony as the "people's president".

Also, as the minister of state security in the early 1980s under Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa is described by some as one of the architects of killings that claimed the lives of about 20,000 Zimbabweans. He still denies any involvement.

And in France, a court is to set to confirm whether the national rail operator, SNCF, discriminated against some 800 Moroccan workers hired as private contractors back in the 1970s. The men say they were denied the same work and pension benefits as their French colleagues. The company denies the allegations.
