Government cancels Addis Ababa master plan after months of protests in Oromo region
Issued on: Modified:
In today's show: protests in Ethiopia over Addis Ababa's expansion plan, national dialogue in DR Congo and malnutrition in Uganda.
After months of deadly protests, Ethiopia has abandoned plans to expand Addis Ababa into farmlands traditionally belonging to the country's largest ethnic group, the Oromo.
Also, in DR Congo, critics of President Kabila are unconvinced about the motivations behind his calls for national dialogue. Many believe he's angling to remain in power beyond the two terms allowed by the constitution.
And vulnerable communities in the Ugandan village of Moroto face not only malnutrition but also an increased risk of illness.
