Tens, if not hundreds of thousands of protesters throng the streets of Lomé and around Togo demanding President Faure Gnassingbé give up power after more than 12 years in office. Together, he and his father have led the country for half a century.

Also, Kenya's presidential hopefuls kickstart their campaigns before an October vote, after the Supreme Court cancelled last month's election result.

And a return to normal life. In Central African Republic, a program to disarm rebels gives them a chance to become citizens like any other. This after the UN warned of possible genocide and a humanitarian crisis.
