In an attempt to fill the power vacuum after Pierre Nkurunziza's death, Burundi's top constitutional court has ruled that the president-elect should take power immediately. Also, the UN and NGOs such as Reporters Without Borders support the plight of imprisoned Cameroonian journalists, pressuring Paul Biya's government after authorities revealed that journalist Samuel Wazizi had died in custody. And we get reactions from Kinshasa over whether or not a statue of Belgium's colonial-era King Leopold II should be removed, following a similar debate in Belgium itself.
