One question. One story from Africa for Africa. Alan Kasujja takes a deep dive into the news shaping the continent.

    Where are South Africa’s black dads?

    Where are South Africa’s black dads?

    Growing up without a dad at home can be hard.

    And yet, this has become the norm for most black children in South Africa.

    According to a new report, seven out of ten have no biological father at home as they get older.

    Money has something to do with it, but there are other complex reasons behind this trend.

    So, what does it all mean for the children, for the mothers, for the fathers?

    How did Zambia get into so much debt?

    How did Zambia get into so much debt?

    Zambia’s up to its eyeballs in debt.

    Late last year, it became the first African country to default on its foreign debt since the Covid pandemic began.

    And people across the country have started feeling the pinch: many complain about rising prices and their sudden inability to pay their bills.

    But Zambia’s looking for a way out: it’s been talking to the International Monetary Fund, hoping to get some sort of bailout.

    How did things get so bad though? And is there an easy way out of this crisis?

    Why are locusts invading East Africa again?

    Why are locusts invading East Africa again?

    They're like dark moving clouds, buzzing above your head.

    Swarms of locusts have been tearing through parts of East Africa… And they’re hungry.

    They’ve been devouring crop after crop, putting food supplies and farmers’ livelihoods at risk.

    These invasions aren’t new - and yet, they now seem to be happening more often than ever.

    Why is that? How did things get so bad? And can these locusts ever be stopped?

    Why are some people sceptical of Covid vaccines?

    Why are some people sceptical of Covid vaccines?

    It’s a jab that could save your life - and yet, some people still have misgivings about Covid vaccines.

    They’re now being rolled out in parts of Africa, but the logistics of getting millions vaccinated are enormous. A real challenge to be reckoned with.

    And health authorities worry another problem might get in their way: the misconceptions and misgivings some people still have about the vaccines.

    Why the scepticism though? And how can people’s concerns be put to rest?

    Will Africa ever get rid of Ebola?

    Will Africa ever get rid of Ebola?

    Ebola is back in West Africa.

    Five people have died in Guinea - the country’s first deaths since the last epidemic ended in 2016.

    But it’s not all bad news.

    Vaccines are being rolled out in hotspot areas, scientists know more about the virus and governments are better equipped to contain outbreaks.

    So, could this be the beginning of the end of Ebola?
