Supporters of Malawi's opposition took to the streets of Blantyre on Wednesday as their presidential candidate presented nomination papers for the July re-run of last year's election. The outcome initially returned President Peter Mutharika to office, but the result was historically overturned in a landmark court ruling in February. Meanwhile in Burkina Faso, a young man has created a digital school so that students can keep taking classes on their smartphones during the lockdown. And finally, South Africa turns to virtual tourism as national parks stream their safaris online.
