We begin in Liberia, where the opposition leader Joseph Boakai is on course to become president after preliminary election results gave him a slim lead over incumbent George Weah. Celebrations already started in Monrovia Friday night.
We also bring you the latest from Ousmane Sonko’s legal saga. Senegal’s highest court blocked the detained opposition leader from running for president. The Court, however, asked for the case to be decided afresh by a court of appeal in the capital.
Finally, we look at Kenya’s fight with plastic. The country struggles with pollution despite the ban on plastic bags.
