Kenya is bracing for three days of protests this week. The demonstrations are being organised by opposition leader Raila Odinga, who accuses the government of failing to control a cost of living crisis. Also, as the conflict rages in Sudan, we look at the economic impact of the war on neighbouring Central African Republic, where many are dependant on supplies from across the border. Finally, we are heading to Kigali, Rwanda, where the 6th 'Women Deliver' conference is being held.
The opposition in Kenya has again called for protests over the rising cost of living and tax hikes. But the government has publicly warned that it clamp down on protesters who cause any harm during rallies.
Clashes in Kenya claim six more lives as police and protesters face off in the capital Nairobi, but fewer demonstrators are out on the streets than in previous days. Also, as the Women's World Cup kicks off, we head to Morocco to hear how the country's first ever participation in the tournament is changing the image of the game as a man's sport. Finally, we speak to Seysey, one of France's most celebrated urban music producers and composers, as he releases his own songs for the first time.
