104 Dapchi schoolgirls freed by Boko Haram

In tonight's edition: 104 Dapchi schoolgirls are freed by Boko Haram; Kenya's opposition is considering legal action over the ruling party's use of consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica in last year's election; and we meet South African chef Wandile Mabaso.

"Don’t ever send them back to school". There's celebration and heartache in the town of Dapchi. 104 of the 110 Nigerian girls abducted last month are returned by Boko Haram extremists, who also chillingly warn parents against educating their children.

Also, Kenya's opposition is considering legal action over the ruling party's use of a UK consultancy firm in last year's election. Cambridge Analytica bosses were caught on camera boasting of the control that they exerted over President Uhuru Kenyatta’s reelection.

And as the crème de la crème of the culinary world celebrate French cuisine with "Gout de France" or "Good France", we meet one South African chef taking part in the event, Wandile Mabaso.
