Defiant Zuma says no 'shortcut' to new South Africa

In tonight's edition: Freedom Day in South Africa; high hopes after Riek Machar's return to South Africa; and Abidjan pays tribute to Papa Wemba.


In South Africa, pro and anti-government rallies take place to mark Freedom Day, which commemorates the country's first post-apartheid elections held in 1994.

Also, following the return of rebel leader Riek Machar to South Sudan on Tuesday, his supporters say they're optimistic for the future of Africa's youngest nation. His critics, though, are unconvinced.

And bidding a final farewell: a huge concert in Ivory Coast's capital is set to pay homage to the king of Congolese rumba, Papa Wemba. A host of musicians and singers will take to the stage to perform. Our correspondent is in Abidjan.
