After weeks of political tension, Madagascar's president steps down, dissolves the government, and hands power to the military.

Plus, Somalia remains one of the most dangerous countries in the world for aid workers, and the president of Sudan says all foreign aid groups need to leave.

On the final "Africa Update," Tony Cox speaks with Emira Woods — co-director of Foreign Policy in Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies — and Bill Fletcher, a Senior Scholar with the Institute for Policy Studies and former President of TransAfrica Forum.
