We speak to Maudo Jallow, an Economic Development consultant on the resurgence of military coups especially in West Africa. The issue dominated the agenda at the 35th African Union heads of state summit which drew to a close on Sunday in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Plus, China’s trade with Africa continues to expand even as some African countries express concern over their trade deficits with China. To counter this, Beijing has said it plans to invest $300bn in Africa over the next 3 years to spur exports. We speak to Hannah Ryder, CEO of Development Reimagined on whether this new investment will address the existing trade imbalance.

Live from our studios in Nairobi, Peter Mwangangi presents this edition of BBC Money Daily.
