South Africa: 23 arrested as students continue to protest tuition fee hikes
Issued on: Modified:
Almost two dozen students are arrested as protests against tuition fee hikes in South Africa continue to gather pace. Also, clashes break out in Congo-Brazzaville, in the run-up to this weekend’s referendum that could pave the way for a third mandate for the president. Finally, Ivory Coast's economic recovery stands in good stead for the government as the country gears up for a key presidential election this weekend, but not everyone has reaped the rewards of the recovery.
