Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta threatens to impeach his rival should opposition leader Raila Odinga win the re-run election in October. Political tensions are simmering in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to annul the first presidential poll.
Also, Benin and Nigeria are at risk of flooding that's already hit Niger hard. Dozens of people have been killed there by damage and danger caused by months of heavy rain.
