Bill Gates has called for an improved audit of international aid in Africa, to make sure it achieves its aims.

The billionaire philanthropist told the BBC that aid remains vital in ensuring Africa is lifted from poverty, but that African countries need to find solutions for their own problems, especially development matters.

He spoke to BBC Africa's Emmanuel Igunza in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.
