  Ghana’s former President, Jerry Rawlings, leaves behind a complicated political legacy. He died aged 73 having transitioned from being a military dictator to the father of the country’s multi party democracy. Also Covid-19 restrictions have hit a vital trade artery between DR Congo’s Goma and Rwanda’s Gisenyi. And   Motenguene, the traditional music and dance of Central African pygmies has survived competition from imported sounds.
