Jacob Zuma's state of the nation address postponed

In tonight's bulletin: Jacob Zuma's state of the nation address is postponed; Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger meet with France to discuss funding for a joint force against jihadists; and farmers are bearing the brunt of land speculation as international oil groups set up on the shores of Lake Albert in Uganda.

Pressure grows on South Africa’s president as his state of the nation address is postponed. But Jacob Zuma may also have been handed a reprieve as the ANC party pushes back a meeting on his future.

Also, Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger meet with France to discuss funding for a joint force to combat jihadist extremists in the region.

And Uganda is set to become a big oil producer as international oil giants line up to exploit a new find under Lake Albert. But this requires a lot of land and local farmers are bearing the brunt of speculation.
