Chinese Invest in Major African Railway

The Chinese are investing in Africa's railways, with a vision to create a network connecting seven East-African countries. It is a much-needed infrastructure development, but not everyone is convinced by China's involvement. Plus, the European Union consider new economic sanctions against Russia, ahead of next week's presidential election in Ukraine. Also, we look at how new media is being used in India's general election. Finally, the food substitute Soylent has started shipping - we look at whether it could be the food of the future, or just another fad. All this with guests David Kuo from The Motley Fool in Singapore, and Daniel Strachman from in the US.
