Nous recevons Alexis Thambwe Mwamba, nouveau président du Sénat en RD Congo. La campagne a été rude dans les rangs du FCC. L'influence de Joseph Kabila est-elle en train de s’essouffler ? Nous lui avons posé la question. Également au sommaire, la nouvelle journée meurtrière au Soudan. Cinq manifestants dont quatre lycéens ont été tués par balles ce lundi à Al-Obeid. Le mouvement de contestation appelle à de nouvelles marches. Enfin, au Nigeria, le procès d'Ibrahim Zakzaky a été ajourné.

Zimbabwe's old currency was issued in millions and billions of dollars before being phased out
A drug dealer who used dark web marketplaces to ply his trade apparently used part of the proceeds to buy vast quantities of Zimbabwean cash.
The FBI said Richard Castro, of Florida, had bought the equivalent of “approximately 100 quadrillion [1,000 trillion] Zimbabwe bank notes” in June 2018.
Use of the currency had ended years earlier, following hyperinflation.

Castro also bought hundreds of thousands of US dollars worth of vehicles and “luxury automobile [wheel] rims”.

Beyoncé calls the project a “love letter to Africa”
Some of Africa's biggest music stars look set for success on a global scale having been handpicked by US singer Beyoncé to appear on her Lion King-inspired album.
While Nigerian stars like Wizkid and Burna Boy have already broken through to the mainstream in the UK and US, their collaboration with the superstar in The Lion King: The Gift is bound to give their careers a bigger boost.
