Ivory Coast teachers’ unions protest extension of school days

It’s a short lived return to school in Abidjan as pupils are sent home by protesting teachers. Some staff are firmly against a new five-day working week. And in Gabon, there are calls for an international investigation into the military's response to rioting that followed the re-election of President Ali Bongo. Finally we head to Uganda, where a self-taught filmmaker is producing big bang, low-budget action movies from a makeshift studio lacking both electricity and plumbing.
