In tonight's edition: Reactions in Kinshasa to the top court's decision on Kabila's term; Kenya's athletes risk missing out on Rio after WADA's decision; and we talk to last year's winner of the Innovation Prize for Africa.
Joseph Kabila is under pressure to stick to the schedule for upcoming presidential elections. His critics have not taken kindly to a court ruling that the Congolese leader can stay on as caretaker president until the polls are held, even if that's after his mandate ends.
Also, Kenya's Olympic dreams hit a hurdle on the road to Rio. The World Anti-Doping Agency finds the country's laws and drug testing facilities are not up to scratch. Its athletes could be banned from the Olympic Games.
And the Innovation Prize for Africa has been running for five years. It’s about encouraging the work being done on the continent to provide real solutions to real problems. After this week’s announcement of the latest crop of finalists, we speak to last year's winner about the importance of African entrepreneurship.
