South African corruption report: 'It appears crimes have been committed'

In tonight's edition: a public prosecutor in South Africa issues a report on Jacob Zuma; Kenya withdraws its troops from the UN mission in South Sudan, and Makarere University is shut down in Uganda.

South African protesters took to the streets on Wednesday to ramp up pressure on their president to step down. This as a report by a state anti-corruption watchdog said it found possible evidence of corruption within Jacob Zuma's government.

Also, Nairobi is furious over the UN's firing of the head of peacekeeping forces in South Sudan in the wake of a damning report on the UNMISS mission's failure to protect civilians.

And Uganda's president has ordered the indefinite closure of one of the country's oldest universities after days of student protests culminated in violent clashes with police. The rallies are in response to a fortnight of strikes by academic staff demanding better pay and conditions.
