((INTRO)): The United Nations is assessing the Cyclone Idai humanitarian crisis in Zimbabwe as calls for the government to provide aid more quickly grow louder. Columbus Mavhunga reports from the hard hit district of Chimanimani, about 500 kilometers south east of Harare.
More than 100 of the Chibok schoolgirls remain in captivity, nearly five years after Boko Haram militants in Nigeria abducted them from their school. President Muhammadu Buhari promised to make the rescue of the girls, and other abductees a top priority. Some have been released. But advocacy groups say Buhari's government, in its focus on the economy, has largely forgotten the girls who are still being held.. Timothy Obiezu reports from Abuja.
