Aw that's nifty!

These are the kind of reports that we should be hearing coming from Africa, not xenophobic news in 2016!

Greetings, I'm Paul Bakibinga and I'll be presenting Focus on Africa today at the earlier hour of 18 GMT due to our live commentary of the Champions League Final between Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid right after the programme.
Some of the stories we are looking at:
Militants in Nigeria attacked an oil pipeline in the Niger Delta. The Niger Delta Avengers claim responsibility.
Meanwhile a year after President Muhammadu Buhari took office promising to eradicate graft. How far has the country got with this promise? We speak to Ibrahim Magu head of Nigeria's Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
There's weekend sport.
Plus we visit Swaziland, where the bushfire music festival is marking its 10th anniversary
and more.
If you want to have your say, please leave a comment below or text +44 77 86 20 50 75., and do listen at 18 GMT on radio or online: http://bbc.in/1NUiPkC
