President Museveni's son's tweets raise eyebrows Africa Today

In today's podcast: Ugandans' tongues are wagging after a day which saw the President's son first demoted and then promoted to full General after a series of bizarre tweets that threatened to cause a diplomatic rift with neighboring Kenya. Also, a $100 million dollar cocaine haul has been seized in Liberia by the Drugs Enforcement Agency, and a number of arrests made after a tip-off from the Americans, and it seems to point to a global syndicate. Plus, thirteen women who'd been abducted from between three weeks to six months are rescued from their captors in Zambia. Those stories and more in this podcast with Bola Mosuro.
