South African ministers held hostage during meeting with veterans

In South Africa, three ministers have been released after being held hostage during a meeting with anti-apartheid veterans. Police have arrested 56 people who will likely face charges of kidnapping. We also head to Kenya, where the husband of running star Agnes Tirop has been arrested. Tirop was stabbed to death at her home in Iten on Wednesday. Finally, we bring you the last episode in our Cape Verde series, in which we focus on the country’s flourishing music scene.
