This poll worker watched Agathon Rwasa, a well-known opposition leader, talk to media after he voted. Years ago, Rwasa fought Nkurunziza in the bush. Now the men battle at the ballot box. Rwasa says: It's not a fair fight, his poll observers were turned away in some strongholds.
This man is Albert. He voted for the new constitution for a few reasons, but mostly because, he said, the other side just wants to just take over the country. "Like the colonists did." He's 67, and he said remembers them, and has no interest in that sort of thing again. (Although my favorite pic of him is not Instagram shaped, so head over to my twitter, @itsjina)
Good morning from Burundi, where people are voting in a referndum on changing the Constitution. Supporters say it can make the government more efficient and relevant. Critics say it will consolidate power in the presidency.
Today is actually a day of good news out here "in Africa." Boko Haram releases ~100 girls kidnapped from Dapchi four weeks ago. African leaders sign a deal that may make the whole continent a free trade zone. My new baby banana sprout wants to be a metaphor.
Possibly my favorite piece among heavy competition at the Murumbi Collection in Nairobi. It's so lovely the best bits don't even fit in a square. By Ugandan artist Sanaa Gateja.
This morning, an appreciation of this tiny nectarine. It grew in South Africa before it was boxed and sold here, and it is the most delicious nectarine I have ever had. So much better than home.
