Venezuela opposition calls for general strike
Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaido has called for a general strike.
Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaido has called for a general strike. We assess how what was once south America's richest nation descended into chaos, with hyperinflation and a virtually worthless currency. We hear from Venezuelan oil analyst Paola Rodriguez-Maisu, and get wider context from Daniel Lansberg-Rodriguez of Northwestern University in the US, who also advises on the risks of investing in Latin American countries. Also in the programme, there's a new crackdown in Kenya on advertising by betting companies. Journalist Mike Okinyi of Citizen TV in Nairobi explains the background. Plus we examine why domestic staff doing invaluable work caring for the youngest and oldest members of society are often paid so poorly.
