Three Weeks Until Kenya Goes to the Polls

Kenyans will elect their new president, parliament and local politicians on 8 August.

Kenyans will elect their new president, parliament and local politicians on 8 August. But they're nervous - over 1,000 people were killed after violence broke out following the last elections in 2007. The BBC's Vivienne Nunis reports from Nairobi. Plus, Netflix's quarterly earnings boost its share price by 9% - we hear from tech analyst Jay Somaney. And BBC correspondent Phil Mercer on why the state of South Australia is placing a new tax levy on its banks. Roger Hearing is joined throughout the programme by investment director Catherine Yeung in Singapore and Alexander Kaufman, Huffington Post Business and Environment reporter, in New York.
