We are taking a moment to look at what is happening in the rest of the continent, aside from Gabon.
In The Gambia hearings that intend to investigate alleged human rights abuses committed during the 22-year regime of former President Yahya Jammeh have begun.
The exact numbers of people killed or tortured are yet unknown. The 11-member panel hopes to document the scale of the abuses by October 2020.
The hearings are being broadcast live on Facebook:
More than 1,000 witnesses are expected to testify. Among them are journalists, campaigners, and politicians who criticised Mr Jammeh's rule.
Just wearing a T-shirt calling for democracy was enough to incur the wrath of Mr Jammeh, leading to arbitrary detentions, often without trial, and sometimes death and disappearances.
But in January 2017, under a regionally brokered deal, Mr Jammeh was forced into exile after losing elections.
He went to oil-rich Equatorial Guinea where not much has been heard from him since.
However a recent video surfaced in which he appears to be dancing at an official function with his host, President Teodoro Obiang Nguema. This has led to renewed calls for his extradition to The Gambia to face trial.
