Zambian opposition leader Hichilema charged with treason

In tonight's edition: Zambian opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema is charged with treason for allegedly refusing to give way to President Edgar Lungu's motorcade, and in South Africa tens of thousands of protesters call for President Jacob Zuma to quit. Also, Jews in Egypt are sad to see the local demise of their culture.

Zambia's police chief has announced that opposition leader Hichilema will be charged with treason for allegedly obstructing President Lungu's motorcade. Hichilema's arrest has infuriated his UPND party which accuses the government of political persecution. Police, however, say they are not under any kind of political pressure.

And in South Africa, a 30,000-strong rally descended on Pretoria on Wednesday with demonstrators demanding that president Zuma quits. Public anger against him has been stoked by the economic damage done by Zuma's recent cabinet reshuffle that saw finance minister Pravin Gordhan being ousted.

Around half a century ago, Egypt's Jewish population numbered over one hundred thousand, but today only a handful remain. Now numbering less than two dozen, many struggle to come to terms with the local demise of their culture.
