Paul Kagame set to win third term according to early results in Rwanda election

In tonight's edition: preliminary results from Rwanda's election show the long-time president Paul Kagame with a strong lead against his two challengers, a U.N report details DR Congo carnage in the Kasai region warning of 'ethnic cleansing' and Fela Kuti is remembered as the legacy of the Afrobeat founder lives on 20 years after his death.

According to preliminary results, Paul Kagame is set to win Rwanda's presidential election. The 59 year old will be serving a third term, which was made possible by changes to the country's constitution.
Also, calling for action to stop the violence in South Western Congo. A report out this Friday by U.N Human Rights investigators details atrocities by two militia groups, one made up largely of children and Congolese soldiers.
And he created an entire musical genre. Fela Kuti died 20 years ago this week. The Nigerian singer and saxophone player revolutionized dance floors around the world with Afrobeat, a torch two of his sons continue to carry.
