ANC tells Jacob Zuma to step down

In tonight's edition: the ANC tells Jacob Zuma to step down; the electoral commission in DR Congo says that without voting machines there will be no presidential election; and we take a sneak peak at a much anticipated blockbuster, "Black Panther".

Political uncertainty continues in South Africa. The ruling ANC party tells Jacob Zuma to step down as head of state, but gives the scandal-prone president no firm deadline to go.

Also, the polling chief in DR Congo says long-awaited presidential polls in December won't happen without electronic voting machines.

And a Hollywood fantasy production is making African fans' dreams come true. As the Marvel comic superhero film "Black Panther" premieres on the continent, many see it as marking a shift in portrayal of Africans on the big screen. We hear from some of the cast.
