In tonight's edition: the ANC closes ranks behind Zuma; Kabila promises elections will be held in DR Congo without saying when; and we welcome back Yemi Alade to our studio.


The ANC closes ranks around Jacob Zuma. Despite growing calls for his exit, his ruling party might have come around to his way of seeing things, but many other camps of South African society are still furious over his leadership.

Also, DR Congo’s leader promises that elections will be held by the end of the year and that he will name a prime minister within two days.

And we welcome back on set Nigerian afropop star Yemi Alade. She and her band Ova Sabi are back in the City of Light to kick off her "Mama Africa" world tour.
