8:04 pm
. well good that's it he says. we want a chorus of you did not. pull this who told me this is ego and just to make sure that puts it it was worth it or was it that she did they equally want there are some bits of it you want along and lots of demonstrations erupted shortly after the election result was announced with the military killing six protesters the m.d.c. say they also lost because its supporters suffered harassment and violence meanwhile president men on god why i held his own press conference where he called for an investigation into what happened and also called for unity. lage to be the presidents of all the. presidents all those
8:05 pm
that voted for me. and those who wouldn't want to know since i'm a one. who saw the road to them but was present. meanwhile opposition leader khamenei has called for a day of mourning for democracy. let me enjoy in just see emma gone a she is a former m.p. of the opposition party m.d.c. but she contested this election as an independent candidate welcome just seem a good loves of a turbulent days that mustn't money has been declared as the winner by the zimbabwean election commission do you think he bring about democracy in the country as he's promised. it's difficult to tell what exactly it is mind but i can tell you what it is that he's expected to do as a new president he has to. defend and fulfill the constitution so he has to do
8:06 pm
that in order to quell all these doubts about the capacity of zanu p.f. to to actually transform itself because this has been issue that has been. for the last fifty years and even in the past elections there's a tremendous amount of skepticism about. african transcends across the continent about how cannot change its spots so in this case he has to. show that indeed he does have good intentions the capacity to deliver what was being said in one of his slogans to deliver. zimbabweans to. show that he can do that but the skepticism jessie is highest in the party the m.d.c. the leader of the m.d.c. the movement for democratic change. has described these elections as fraudulent and
8:07 pm
illegal what of what options does the party have now do you think they'll actually challenge these results and call to take people out on the streets. i have heard saying that they will defend the vote but what i do know is that they do have the. law provides that anyone was aggrieved by an election result is the opportunity to tell is the results in the electoral. so that to them for them to tell that application demonstrates why it is that they say that the election is so fundamentally flawed that to check the will of the zimbabwean people from from you know from from being from being fulfilled so they have that option so just to be getting two very competing narratives out of the country opposing ends one saying it was a fairly action the other saying it was actually democracy going to pieces you
8:08 pm
voted in this election as an independent what was your impression how free and fair it. look my view is that this election was not like totally free and totally fair. and this was just simply described it is the least worst election that zimbabwe will have and it was about when elections have never been free and fair i realized that even just after independence we have never had free and fair elections and we have it terribly terribly in a horribly i'm free and fair elections particularly when the movement for democratic change was formed and particularly from two thousand and eight where we had more than two hundred people killed in the aftermath of the election when p.f. which is led by the present president now to correct the way people have voted and women were raped in numbers etc so we ended in two thousand two thousand and two and then two thousand and thirteen that was not fair at all but that was peaceful
8:09 pm
but for me twenty eighteen. is a list and for the engine lists and phase election then we have had over the years and i'm i and i say that look my understanding is that those factors that makes about wins election and free and fair are not issues that can be resolved overnight and paul until november last year and in the eight months that he has been out of power it's not possible to undo the decades of advantage that the ruling party has said the stranglehold of the ruling party over the media and it traditionally does i mean all sorts of things and even the issues that are involved by the political culture. and i just see it as knowing that jesse was going to vanish like this and jesse had long ago made was a pleasure to talk to or you will watch it as an independent in the elections in zimbabwe thank you so much for sharing your views with us we have to be that the thank you very much for talking to. let me now bring

insisted he'd won a free and fair election. the majority of people here in germany say racism is a big problem that's according to a new survey by pulling institute in for a test d. map the issue of racism came into focus off the footballer z.-e. came to face racism and disrespect because of his turkish roots and quits the german national team. he wore the german jersey he even won the world cup for germany but football player mazie musial was recently caught in a backlash regarding his german turkish identity he then resigned from the national team accusing the german football association of racism. now germans are publicly debating this the country have a problem with xena phobia. racism in germany is a very big or big problem for two thirds or sixty four percent of the germans
8:32 pm
according to latest polls only thirty five percent think it's a small or no problem at all a hot political summer in germany but with nothing to gain for the government in berlin approval rates for the grand coalition continue to plummet. i asked which party they'd vote for less than a third of german voters twenty nine percent would currently cast their ballot for the conservative c.d.u. c.s.u. bloc the social democrats would get less than a fifth of the votes only eighteen percent the right wing populist would reach a record high seventeen percent the liberals and left each still rank below ten percent while the greens would move up to fifteen percent. according to this poll if there was a general election next sunday in germany the coalition parties would lose their majority in parliament but had a make up fort germans consider health and pension policies among the most important issues to be taken care of by their government so work awaits parliament
8:33 pm
after its summer break ends in september. and not to talk about that so i am joined by senior political correspondent welcome simon let's begin first talking about masood and he resigned from the national football team thing you faced discrimination that got huge traction in the media and actually polarized the nation so how does his story play into this whole debate about racism well of course you know most of those who are very popular football or it was just after the world cup people of course talk about football related stories whatever they are so that i think. accounts for some of the media traction but there's been since these allegations of racism that he made there's been a lot of media coverage a lot of stories and opinion pieces but also on social media we've seen this hash tag me two that's not the sexual harassment hash tag it's me t w o people
8:34 pm
talking about the idea that they have dual identities with their migration background but also a german identity that they also have in the difficulties they face dealing with that and a lot of anecdotal evidence has come out in the in the wake of this people talking about the problems they have getting a job getting an apartment and this type of every day racism that's why you're seeing for instance government government ministers calling on people to really take the issue of racism more seriously now caught into the sport of germans believe the people polled believe that racism is a problem in this country but this figure into context for us is racism on the increase or the thing racism differently well course it's a complex issue and it kind of depends what you mean by racism but if we talk about xenophobia attitude xenophobia speech of course there has been some rise of that in recent years with the rise for instance of the anti islam street movement over
8:35 pm
the. right party which is sort of you know talked about who belongs in germany who doesn't belong here so you seen a lot more of that now another thing that this poll shows. that people quite naturally perhaps see that migrants recently arrived in germany but not very well integrated that's not surprising in itself but if you take that together with the fact that more than a million people of iran as migrants in germany in the last three years perhaps that accounts for some of this increase in the attitudes that people are talking about the government itself by the way admits that it hasn't reached its targets. in integrating people teaching them the german language helping them to feel at home here in germany so the these problems are in the background of this debate certainly that it is a complex issue but thank you very much simon young from political death for shedding light on at this particular case some other stories making news around the

in the west african nation of mali opposition media somalia sisi has rejected and for delenn to the results from sunday's presidential election he could work on opposition groups to unite to defeat incumbent president ibrahim. in the runoff on this. as the christians in the democratic republic of congo say the type of the buddha and the country's leaders outbreak is a strain which has been successfully vaccinated against in the past four people have tested positive for the deadly virus in recent days the world health organization says there is a high risk of the outbreak spreading including to neighboring countries. students and bangladeshis capitated a bangladesh capital taka have held a sixty of protest of the two teenagers were killed by a speeding bus tens of thousands of demonstrators have blocked roads throughout the week to demand safer streets the road fatality rates in baghdad they show
8:37 pm
a monster the highest in the wide. india has been dropped by a wave of mob lynchings across the country in recent months some of them have been as a result of false information circulated on the messaging service whatsapp in an attempt to curb these acts of violence in some areas local law enforcement officials have started campaigns to inform the people our correspondent there follicular travel to the western city of russia to find out more. it isn't every day that this village sees gifts like these. on a special mission. dispelling vital rumors spread in what's that have killed people across the country not all of it. was also trained lawyer is the brains behind the campaign he appeals to the crowd to not be fooled by fake news of the internet and
8:38 pm
use their own mind to judge what's true or false. misleading videos like this one which claim to show corpses of children have gone vital voices thieves disguised as beggars harvested the organs all hush explains how the videos are doctored to create panic. another clip suggests this woman is an outsider and was trying to abduction. that's why she was beaten up fake news like this is spreading like wildfire in india it is a major problem because these are very close knit communities where almost everyone tends to know each other the spread and acceleration of this news can be very very quick but the fact that it is about child lifting is something for primal something so provocative that your child could be taken away from you i scarcely think there is a greater fear than that for any family or any parent. that it can precipitate violence very easily. that's what happened here in the neighboring district of totally about
8:39 pm
three hundred fifty kilometers from mumbai this heavy security in this remote village it only has women and children many of the men have fled ever since a lynching to place in this building. fake news is killing people in india right here in this village council office five people were beaten to death by a mob last month the police say the people were driven by videos and whatsapp claiming that kidnappers are on the loose the victims were beggars from a nomadic tribe. the lynching c.-o. were particularly brutal the police have arrested twenty eight people so far. try to help the victims by locking them in here but the mob forced their way in. your record a charlatan and thought about of course the people would stick with the rods with stones in witches in the office the crowd was bloodthirsty i've never seen anything
8:40 pm
like this there was a video on someone's phone warning people to stay vigilant because gangs were kidnapping children and stealing their organs. in mali go police have threatened jail time if anyone four with explosive messages that can cause public panic. it's part of the campaign to quash rumors before they boil over and lead to. the measures stick on and added urgency in monaco's melting pot into religious tensions are never far from the surface here. today officers are in the hindu temple it's part of the campaign's outreach to influential religious leaders the message is familiar remain skeptical of what you read online and don't resolve to fight it's. the campaign continues attracted junctions across the city. leaflets with police help like numbers are handed out. to raise awareness about the deadly consequences of feet news. and now to helen and the challenge of switching the world to green
8:41 pm
energy had enough that's right and return of course we know that germany is one of the countries spearheading that campaign the transition to green energy and it's encouraged others to do the same and with plenty of sun and wind africa is one place you'd think renewables would make a lot of sense but a report from the advocacy group oil change international accuses rich countries of promoting dirty energy in africa and prioritizing fossil fuel development often at the expense of clean energy sources it estimates aid to africa's energy sector was fifty nine billion dollars between twenty fourteen and twenty sixteen and it says that some sixty percent of that went directly on fossil fuels will china gave the most to the african energy sector followed by the world bank japan and germany this is something that the world bank group disputes disputes those estimates that
8:42 pm
fossil fuels are blamed for global warming and last year the g twenty countries face accusations of hypocrisy for talking tough on global warming but providing four times more public finance for fossil fuels than for renewables or to talk more about this we can bring in alex ducasse now from oil change international he's the director of the stop funding fossil fuels program there thank you very much for joining us mr ducasse let me begin by asking you thank you why shouldn't africa take advantage of the resources it has including fossil fuels. i think it's really a decision that's in many ways up to african governments and the people that they represent about what the energy future is ought to be on the continent but i think the issue that our report highlights is that we're talking about a lot of international public money so government backed taxpayer money flowing into africa to support energy development and what we're seeing there from this relatively scarce public finance there's not
8:43 pm
a lot of this money floating around and we needed to do a lot of work we needed to help address sustainability goals we need it to help address development goals we're seeing a lot of that finance flow to fossil fuels and a lot of the time what our analysis discovered is that quite a bit of that money supporting fossil fuels is actually supporting the economic interest of the countries providing the money not necessarily focusing on the development benefits for for people in africa but we should say that your report was a points out that forty percent a fiat saying does go to other energy sources not fossil fuel. i mean that's not nothing how is that being east yeah a lot of that finance is for transmission and distribution expansions so expanding the grid a lot of that sort of that other category is site is in large hydro which we don't count as surviving energy and that's actually you mentioned that the world bank group disputes our estimates that's one of the areas of difference that we have with them we count that as other instead of clean energy because of its social and environmental impacts but there is some finance going to renewable energy as well
8:44 pm
to solar and wind and our our emphasis is that you know we look at the evidence and the analysis by the international energy agency and we see that if we want to achieve universal access to electricity for the hundreds of millions of people in africa who currently are without electricity it's going to require more investments in renewable energy i mean you mentioned access to the great some places aren't yet connected to the great so should we be telling countries how to get online what about using fossil fuels as a stopgap. yeah i think it's up to the governments themselves and the people of african countries to make decisions on their energy sources and what kinds of projects they want to invest in but i think that the evidence shows that on a least cost basis if we want to connect the hundreds of millions of people without access to electricity in africa right now to energy services that the most affordable way to do so for most people on the continent is through distributed renewable energy through off grid and many grid approaches are out of them through
8:45 pm
