Cancer treatment

The South African medical aid scheme, Profmed, says many people don't really know how much cancer treatment costs and what the impact on personal finances will be.

Even though the medical scheme will cover some of the expenses related to cancer, there are limits.

Ultimately, a patient's chosen medical aid plan will determine the coverage they can receive for cancer.

Cancer diagnoses in South Africa are becoming more prevalent. The most common cancers include breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer and other soft tissue cancers.

The Juwa opposition party in the Comoros says it does not recognise last Sunday presidential elections

The Juwa opposition party in the Comoros says it does not recognise last Sunday presidential elections. People in Comoros took to the polls in the islands of the Indian Ocean archipelago's presidential elections, where incumbent Azali Assoumani is widely expected to win a new term in a vote that rivals say has been hijacked. The opposition alleged that irregularities at several polling stations amounted to a "coup d'état" and called for public "resistance". They claim some independent candidates did not receive the necessary documents to access polling stations and that some polling stations had opened earlier than the official time. They accuse the incumbent President Assoumani of hijacking the ballots in order to be declared the winner. More from Aboubakar Aboud, spokesperson for the Juwa party..

Somalia expresses concerns following withdrawal of Kenyan Forces from the Jubaland camp

Somalia has expressed its concerns following the abrupt withdrawal of Kenya Defence Forces from the only remaining camp in Jubaland saying the move will expose the country to Al-Shabaab threats. Kenyan troops have reportedly started withdrawing from Somalia after moving out of their command centre in Busar, north of Jubaland. The Kenyan government has not provided reasons for the troops withdrawal, but there are reports that the withdrawal is due to a funding problem for The African Union Mission in Somalia-AMISOM. Despite the militants being driven out of the Somali capital Mogadishu several years ago, they've managed to regroup in rural areas where they continue to launch attacks.

For more on this, Channel Africa's Khumbelo Munzhelele spoke to Kwezi Mngqibisa, Co-ordinator of Somalia project initiative at The African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of disputes-ACCORD.
