Voting goes smoothly in Sierra Leone

In tonight's edition: voters head to the polls in Sierra Leone; the NGO Global Witness alleges South Sudan's national oil company is funnelling money to fund the civil war; and rural communities in Liberia hope that land disputes will be resolved now they have a new president.


Voting goes smoothly in Sierra Leone, as voters turn out to choose who will take over from President Ernest Bai Koroma and hopefully spearhead an economic turnaround for the country.

Also, international rights investigators say South Sudan's president and his inner circle are using the state-run oil company as a piggy bank and creaming off funds for the country’s civil war.

And many rural Liberians are hoping that new president George Weah will pass legislation to shore up their ownership rights to land that many have worked and lived on for generations.
