Africa Weekly – a round up of news and features | AFP

This week on Africa Weekly, we head to South Africa, where around 1,000 people each year end up in the morgues of Johannesburg, without anyone claiming them.

Then we head to the Democratic Republic of Congo where Lake Kivu is playing a key role in the country’s battle against Ebola. FOR SUBSCRIBERS OF AFRICA WEEKLY ONLY
