Nile Renaissance Dam deadlock: Ethiopia denies deliberately filling hydroelectric dam
In this edition, Egypt calls for clarification from Ethiopia over claims that it has already started filling the Grand Renaissance Dam against the wishes of Cairo and Khartoum. Also, the latest songs by some of the top icons of the Ivorian genre of Zouglou have proved to be controversial. Yard and Siro's latest album calls out President Alassane Ouattara in a particularly tense election year. Finally, Congolese activists are trying to encourage men to re-examine traditional gender roles and consider the differences between positive and negative forms of masculinity.
