We begin in Liberia, where opposition leader Joseph Boakai is poised to become president after preliminary election results gave him a slight lead over incumbent George Weah. Celebrations already began in Monrovia on Friday evening.
We also bring you the latest news on Ousmane Sonko’s legal saga. Senegal’s highest court has blocked the detained opposition leader from running for president. The court, however, requested that the case be re-determined by an appeals court in the capital.
Finally, we look at Kenya’s fight against plastic. The country is fighting against pollution despite the ban on plastic bags.
