In tonight's edition: Dozens are killed in Ethiopia in unrest that erupted following the killing of a popular Oromo singer earlier this week. Protests are held outside of Witts University in Johannesburg by crowds objecting to the continent's first Covid-19 vaccine trials being held in the city. And Benin turns towards its troubled past as a major slave trading port. Some object to calls for sites named after slave traders to be rebranded saying that they play an important part in acknowledging the country's history.
