Protests in Eswatini, Tech Coding in Uganda, and #FixTheCountry

On This Week, we discuss ongoing protests and a government crackdown in Eswatini. With the monarchy seemingly unpopular (83% reject rule by an absolute monarchy according to the most recent Afrobarometer survey), we discuss the options for King Mswati III and what is underlying the protests. We also consider gender in the digital divide and the efforts of Gloria Tumushabe to encourage computer coding in Uganda. Finally, we turn back to protests, this time looking at the #FixTheCountry movement in Ghana.
