South African Elections

On the final day of campaigning before South Africa goes to the polls in a general election, the BBC's Matthew Davies broadcasts from a cafe in Soweto, Johannesburg. He hears from small business owners who want the ANC to be more receptive to their needs - something the government is promising.

Also, the takeover of Britain's biggest drug firm AstraZeneca by American rival Pfizer is now headline news in the UK, as politicians join the scientific community in expressing concern about the effect on jobs and research.
