What's Up Africa: Satirist looks at Russia's African ties

In the 1960s strong ties were forged between the former Soviet Union and many countries in Africa.

Those ties did not endure - but now Russia seems to be rekindling old friendships on the continent.

In the final episode of this series of What's Up Africa, satirist Ikenna Azuike says he thinks he knows why.

What's Up Africa is a BBC and RNW co-production
