Gupta firms lose bid to have Bank Baroda remain in South Africa

In tonight's edition: Gupta firms lose their bid to have Bank Baroda remain in South Africa; Burundi's president, Pierre Nkurunziza, is dubbed "Eternal Supreme Guide" by the ruling party; and the Lord's Resistance Army continues to claim lives in Central African Republic.


There's another blow to the Gupta family as a judge rules that the last bank doing business with their companies in South Africa can pull out of the country.

Also, Burundi's ruling party bestows the title of "Eternal Supreme Guide" on President Pierre Nkurunziza. Critics fear it’s another sign of a growing cult of personality developing around the leader.

And there are only a few hundred members of the Lord’s Resistance Army left, but the militia continues to claim lives in the extreme southeast of Central African Republic.
