Have Zimbabwe’s generals turned into democrats?

Have Zimbabwe's generals turned into democrats? Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionSibusiso Moyo: Zimbabwe 'will not repeat its mistakes' In his well-cut suit, with outstretched hand and beaming smile, Sibusiso Moyo is the very picture of a modern politician. He speaks softly, smoothly and pauses to listen as if he had spent years on campaign trails listening to the supplications of constituents. His desk is covered with papers waiting to be read and signed. We meet at the start of what will be another long day for Zimbabwe's foreign minister. Waiting in another room is the Russian trade delegation. There will be more meetings after that for Mr Moyo: diplomats, civil servants, and the possibility that the phone on his desk will ring with a summons from President Emmerson Mnangagwa - whose office is five minutes away in another part of the building. The president has declared Zimbabwe "open for business" and it is Mr Moyo's job to make ..

Medecins Sans Frontieres staff 'used local prostitutes' Image copyright Getty Images Image caption The charity employs thousands of health professionals and logistical staff, most hired locally Aid workers at charity Medecins Sans Frontieres used local prostitutes while working in Africa, whistleblowers have told the Victoria Derbyshire programme. Female former employees said the behaviour was widespread. One said a senior colleague said it was possible to barter medication in exchange for sex. The charity said it does not tolerate "abuse, harassment or exploitation". The use of prostitutes is banned by MSF under its strict code of conduct.

Internet service, both mobile and fixed line, will go off for an hour after the start of each high school diploma exam to stop any leaks.

Education Minister Nouria Benghabrit told Algerian newspaper Annahar that Facebook would be blocked across the country throughout the entire period. Ms Benghabrit said while they are "not comfortable" with the decision, "we should not passively stand in front of s..

Boris Becker ‘CAR diplomatic immunity’ claim descends into confusion

Boris Becker 'CAR diplomatic immunity' claim descends into confusion Image copyright AFP Image caption Boris Becker says the legal action being taken against him is "unjustified and unjust" Confusion surrounds a claim by former tennis champion Boris Becker that he holds diplomatic status on behalf of the Central African Republic (CAR). He asserted last week in London that his appointment as a diplomat by the CAR gave him protection from legal action in a bankruptcy case. The CAR embassy in Belgium confirmed it had issued him a diplomatic passport. However, a top official in the CAR foreign ministry told a French news agency the passport was fake.

CAR foreign minister Charles Armel Doubane later told Reuters an inquiry was being launch..
