In this edition, over 20 women in the east of DR Congo say they were coerced into having sex with aid workers sent into their community to help them face an Ebola crisis. We speak to one of the investigators, Robert Flummerfelt. Also, in the country, an anti-corruption coalition warns that DR Congo could lose up almost $ 4 billion from murky mining and oil deals with sanctioned Israeli businessman Dan Gertler. And, a grave dating thousands of years was discovered in Kenya helping shed light on the cultural evolution of men.
