How Ghana's cheeky monkeys are helping to boost eco-tourism

In this edition: authorities in Cameroon ban public gatherings and impose a curfew ahead of independence protests planned for the 56th anniversary of the country’s unification. Also, we speak to Zannah Mustapha, who won this year’s UN Nansen Refugee Award for his work in educating children in Nigeria's north-east. Finally, we meet some of Ghana's cheeky monkeys. They’ve been boosting regional eco-tourism, and in turn helping to finance the building of a health clinic and several schools.
