21 July: Senegal stadium disaster & Kenya goalkeeper Arnold Origi part 2


On this week's show we ask how safe our stadiums are in Africa. Last weekend eight people died after a wall collapsed at a stadium in Senegal, after police fired tear gas. It's the latest in a long line of tragedies and we ask whether it's safe to take our families to stadiums and if enough action is being taken. We hear from Ghana, the scene of Africa's worst-ever stadium disaster, and from South Africa, where 43 fans died in 2001. And we have part two of our interview with Kenya national team goalkeeper Arnold Origi.
