On tonight’s show we bring you the latest from Ghana. Authorities have sent aid to Apiate, the town that was devastated by a massive blast on Thursday. At least 13 people were killed in that explosion, which happened when a truck carrying dynamite for a nearby mine blew up after a collision with a motorcycle. We also head to Bamako, where former Malian president Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta was laid to rest… and to Senegal, where we take a closer look on what’s at stake in upcoming local elections.
