Opposition lawmakers walk out on South African President Zuma

Opposition MPs walk out on the South African president. Jacob Zuma complains about being given a hard time, but the question of how the 74-year-old got a 20-year $500,000 loan has stirred up more controversy over his leadership. Also, it’s a short-lived return to school in Abidjan as pupils are sent home by protesting teachers. And in Guinea, the once-dazzling reputation of a dance troupe is now struggling to rise again. The Ballets Africains was world famous at its peak.
