Coronavirus: Kenyan financial institutions waive transaction fees on cashless payments

Reports and analysis of the day's political, economic and sports news from across Africa.

Can a move towards using less paper money reduce the chances of the Covid-19 virus being spread? We hear how Kenya is encouraging a cashless culture.

Plus we go back 20 years as Uganda marks the anniversary of the Kanungu tragedy, when 700 members of the Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments were found dead in their church.

And we meet Liz Benson, star of Nigeria's silver screen and credited with being one of those responsible for the birth of Nollywood.
