Disability news round up: Africa and London 2012
The subject of disability in Africa is not often discussed in the media, but a new documentary called Body and Soul aims to address the issue and was premiered in London this week.
The film reveals the challenges and discrimination disabled people face in Mozambique and was shot in the capital Maputo.
Meanwhile, Amadou and Mariam, a blind musical duo from the African nation of Mali, staged a series of sell-out concerts in the dark in London recently. They explained the idea behind the concerts to the Focus on Africa radio programme.
