Zimbabwe declares Mugabe's birthday a public holiday

In tonight's edition: Zimbabwe declares Mugabe's birthday a national holiday, French President Macron starts his first African tour and Madagascar's plague outbreak ends in urban areas.

It is a calm start to the week in Zimbabwe even as its former finance minister is denied bail and held in custody in the wake of the military takeover that ousted the country’s long-time leader, Robert Mugabe, a week ago.

Also, French President Emmanuel Macron heads to Burkina Faso on the first leg of his Africa tour.

And in Madagascar, the prime minister has announced that the worst of the country’s most recent plague outbreak is over. Authorities believe they've got a handle on the spread of the disease in urban areas after ramping up efforts to stamp it out at the end of September.
