UN Africa week: Aim is to 'silence guns' by 2020

The UN's Africa week tackles the questions of how to keep the continent on track to achieve growth on all fronts and how its own leaders can head up the charge. We hear from the United Nation’s special advisor for the region. Also, people in Benin say thank you to the man known as the country's father of democracy. Mathieu Kerekou has died aged 82. And it's felabration time in Nigeria. We head out to the week-long festival inspired by the life and sounds of late Afrobeat star Fela Kuti.
