  1. Tussle over ex-Mozambique minister accused of fraud

    A legal battle between the US and Mozambique to extradite its former finance minister is developing into a stand-off.

    Mozambique has filed provisional charges of embezzlement and money laundering against Manuel Chang who's accused of involvement in fraud, linked to $2bn (£1.5bn) of state-guaranteed debt borrowed during his term in office.

    Mr Chang, who is currently detained in South Africa, also faces extradition to the US for prosecution over the fraudulent loans.

    He has denied wrongdoing.

    Three former bankers at Credit Suisse who helped arrange the loans pleaded guilty in the US earlier this year to bribery and fraud.

    Mr Chang is accused of giving consent to loans of about $2bn, which were guaranteed by the government of Mozambique, to fund a fishing business, but the money vanished and the enterprise never started.

    The US and Mozambican authorities say some of the loans were kept secret.

    When details of the fraud emerged in 2016, the scandal prompted foreign donors including the International Monetary Fund to cut off support to Mozambique, plunging the country into a debt crisis.

    South Africa has yet to decide if it will allow Mozambique or the US to extradite Mr Chang.

  2. Zimbabwean team remove Falklands' last landmines

    A landmine warning sign in Stanley, Falkland Islands.

    A team of Zimbabwean deminers has been credited with removing the last remaining landmines from the Falkland Islands, nearly 40 years after they were laid by invading Argentine forces in the overseas UK territory.

    The demining programme in the South Atlantic territory began in 2009 and has been completed three years ahead of schedule.

    The British minister responsible for the Falklands, Wendy Morton, paid tribute to the deminers and called the completion of the project a "huge achievement".

    Britain's foreign ministry announced $48m (£36m) of funding to other demining projects around the world.

  3. Kenya launches new commuter rail service

    Kenyan media reporting on a new commuter rail service in the capital, Nairobi, say it's hoped it will deliver faster journeys and increased passenger capacity.

    About 1.5 million people commute to the city's Central Business Disctrict everyday by various modes of transport, according to Kenya Railways.

    New Diesel Mobile Units and Commuter Rail Buses will serve passengers on the revamped rail network.

    Two new stations have also been built, the Star newspaper reports.

    Speaking at the launch on Tuesday, President Uhuru Kenyatta said the rail service should reduce over-reliance on road transport.

    He also said it would be extended to the country's main airport within a year.

  4. Tanzanian minister's wife denies 'fleeing' reports

    The wife of former Tanzanian minister Lazaro Nyalandu has denied reports that her husband was trying to cross the border into Kenya.

    Faraja Nyalandu tweeted that they live in Arusha near the border and that her husband was in the border town Namanga "for his personal business".

    Media outlets had reported that local authorities had stopped Mr Nyalandu from leaving the country as he did not have the necessary documents.

    The reports came as a former Tanzanian MP Godbless Lema sought asylum in neighbouring Kenya.

    Reports suggest that many of the killings by Islamist insurgents took place in a football field, in what seems to be a terror tactic aimed at stopping resistance from villagers.

  7. AU urges 'cessation of hostilities' in Ethiopia's Tigray

    A member of Tigray police in Mekele.

    The chairman of the African Union commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, has called for the "immediate cessation of hostilities" in Ethiopia's Tigray region where the military launched an operation against regional troops.

    In a statement, Mr Faki Mahamat also urged the central government and Tigray's state authorities to engage in dialogue to seek a peaceful solution.

    He expressed the readiness of the AU to support an effort to resolve the conflict.

    The leader of the Tigray region, Debretsion Gebremichael, had on Sunday called on the African Union to intervene to stop the country from "spiralling into civil war".

    He also called on the federal government to agree to negotiate.

    But Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said on Tuesday that the military operation will cease "after criminal junta is disarmed, legitimate administration in the region restored and fugitives apprehended and brought to justice".
