Kenya: At least one dead in violence linked to election primaries

In tonight's edition: at least one person dies in violence linked to party primaries in Kenya; a Ugandan court sends a critic of President Museveni back to prison; and in South Africa, winemakers are on a quest for quality and prestige.


Kenyan primaries hit more hurdles as police link another death to the voting for party candidates to stand in August's general election.

Also, Ugandan government dissident Stella Nyanzi is sent back to prison after appearing in court asking for bail. She was jailed for comparing President Museveni to a pair of buttocks.

And despite its international popularity, South African wine struggles to command high-end prices and some vineyard owners say they are struggling to stay in business.
