Zimbabwean nurses call off strike and return to work

In tonight's edition: Nurses in Zimbabwe call off their strike action and return to work, and Cameroon's government says it will compensate victims of a Ponzi scheme. Also, more and more Nigerians are taking up boxing.

Zimbabwe's nurses have returned to work but say that the pay and condition grievances that sparked last week’s walkout still stand.

And in Cameroon, victims of an alleged Ponzi scheme demand their money back. Promoters of the NGO MIDA are accused of tricking millions of CFA francs out of students who signed up hoping to be trained and collect many times their initial registration fees in supposed startup funds.

In Nigeria, having long taken a back seat in a country where football is king, more and more sport enthusiasts are willing to throw their hat into the ring and give boxing a go.
