May Day in South Africa: Zuma forced to leave rally after being heckled

In tonight's edition: Labour unions and their supporters take to the streets across Africa to mark May Day; doctors in Cameroon begin their third week of strikes over unpaid wages and poor working conditions; and we meet the co-founder of Afrikrea, an online platform for fashion "made of Africa".

Booed into silence: South African President Jacob Zuma is forced to leave his rally before he has a chance to speak to labour unions on May Day. Unions and their supporters took to the streets across the continent.

Also, doctors in Cameroon enter their third week of strikes over unpaid wages and poor working conditions, the first strike of its kind in the country since independence.

And we speak to the founder of Afrikrea.com, a digital platform to buy African-inspired clothing and accessories.
