Kenyan TV blackout continues after Odinga's 'inauguration'

Kenya continues its blackout on TV stations after Raila Odinga's mock inauguration on Tuesday. Also, French President Emmanuel Macron heads to Tunisia for his first state visit. And clubbers in Uganda are getting a quiet night in whilst also letting loose on the dance floor. Silent discos are increasingly popular in Kampala - and not just with the neighbours.

A day after opposition leader Raila Odinga staged a mock swearing-in as "the people's president", the government of Kenya's real president, Uhuru Kenyatta, comes down hard on those linked to the symbolic event and vows to keep three stations shut pending an investigation.

Also, France's president heads to Tunisia for his first state visit. Emmanuel Macron is hoping that French investors can help boost the country's struggling economy.

And Kampala's club scene is turning down the volume for wild nights out. Partygoers have something new to shout about with the rise of Silent Discos.
