constitution. to grind forces, se they'll consider a sci fi was government, but only if certain conditions, a man and the charity comic books that reflects the graphic reality faced by thousands of young refugees from central america. ah, ah, hello, welcome to the program book 3 years after a series of corruption, scandal mismanagement and multiple charges of graft ended, his presidency. jacob zoom has continued to defy the authorities in south africa. as a deadline, approaches him to surrender to police. he joined support, says he would rallied outside his home in a candle, vowing to resist any attempt to detain him. him has been found guilty of contempt of court failing to appear before a corruption inquiry faces 50 moms in prison and on friday apply to the court for

10:03 pm
that's despite these new court applications to stay out of jail. but he says it's about his age, his health, and that he doesn't operate as an individual. he's taking the advice of his comrades and family. and it's also about again the rule of law wanting consistency and fairness. so he's use this opportunity to try and spell out exactly why he's not handed himself over to police, and why he is been going to the high court to try and get an interdict against any arrest. but it doesn't come as any surprise to many south africans who know that the former president has used any means possible to not answer questions necessarily or be held accountable. the former president is going to the high court on tuesday to try and get a stay of imprisonment to try and prevent police from arresting him to prevent having him hands himself over ordinarily prior to these court birds. the
10:04 pm
constitutional court in this week had said, you've got 5 days, former president obama, to hand yourself over. if you don't, police will arrest you anytime 3 days after that. so it is a little uncertain what happens next. but the understanding is that he will go to court on tuesday if he's granted that interdicted by the high court, which is also questionable because this is a lower court to the constitutional court. and the constitutional court is the highest land in the country and can't be appealed. but if the high court says it has to restriction and it can issue that interdict the president, the former president will then return to the constitutional court on the 12th of july to try and get this judgment and sentence reviewed. of course, moving to another story, been following very closely off the month of conflict in northern ethiopia to rise . regional government says it's ready for a cease fire, but it has to be certain conditions and place fast and advise it to the president

briefly delayed the start of sundays meeting with daniel shine. the joins us live now from one as iris and neighboring argentina. and daniel, this is a historic event in chile, though it was to be postponed by at least a few hours it was, it is unprecedented, but it shouldn't have been surprising that there were protests inside the convention center on clashes between police and some demonstrators outside the constitution you mentioned that was implemented in 1980, was implemented by a military government working with economists. it was mostly men serving the interests of a small elite of middle aged men. this is a new constitution, 155 members who rep who were trying to overcome the divisions in july and society, but also in many ways represent those divisions. 155 members,
10:10 pm
half of them are women. 17 of the seats have been designated for indigenous communities to the l g b t community as represented people with disabilities. so they are trying to heal the divisions by being represented by the very the district state of, of july and society to the fact that we're classes perhaps shouldn't be a surprise. they now have 9 months to a year to try to come up with the new constitution. there will be further debates for the clashes arguments. there is no one group that dominates 65 members of the, of the assembly and not representatives of any of the major political conventional policies. in chile, we don't know what kind of coalitions they'll be forming, what kind of debates they're going to be having. so it's unprecedented, it's very exciting yet. there's a place on known that people are going into here. right. it's a massive political change unfolding in the country that would see it pops, adore a line in some ways on the one chapter of its history. could we see similar calls

10:22 pm
a sion thing. these lamps are reported to cost even more. the mobile airplanes alone costing nearly a $1000.00 an extravagance for a small rural road. the local governments currently under investigation and had concerns about kickbacks in the procurement process. they've spent more than 10 percent of their annual budget on st. lights alone. outside the district office sits the mess convertible sports cur, which he says here. and before he got the job, he says he has nothing to hide money god about. we are more than happy to help facilitate the investigation. we took the investigators to see the lights. they already checked every single light and they are looking into the procurement process. and i think that my office followed every guideline in the book that maybe you know, if you don't when you host the satirical new show called shallow news in depth of like the corruption scandals are common theme for women. valencia,

10:25 pm
just 20 minutes. that young her station should be completed next year. cool that the, the crew members will spend 3 months helping build the station, conducting experiments small at the same time, maintaining their fitness. they'll also be capturing views that chinese astronauts have been unable to see for themselves since the us lock them out of the international space station 10 years ago. and are chappelle al jazeera. now it's being described as a game changer for babies and the infant living with h i v agencies distributing a strawberry flavor tablet for children in 6 african countries on the pricing agreement between the united nations and generic drug makers. combination therapy will cost $120.00 for each child annually. that's down from $480.00 right now. only half the estimated 1800000 children with h i v get treatment is often hard to administer to to the bitter taste or incorrect doses from crushed adult pills. we spoke to janet canard about this. she said the

10:27 pm
$100000.00 kids dying from h, i v aids related illnesses each year. we really see an opportunity to drive that down dramatically. but then another thing you mentioned with the cost reductions, it's a 75 percent cost reduction. that will really liberate the resources to get more children on treatment, more people on treatment. and really save a lot of lives. now the struggle and the journey of a fictional child refugee from central america is the story told in a newly released charity sponsored comic book. save the children. hope that will help people relate the plight of younger migrant traveling to the united states. money rocket ports from t o one out on the mexico us border once in all to real story for thousands of children. ana is the story of the young girl, forced to migrate from central america. while this comic book sponsored by the nonprofit groups save the children, tells of fictional tale of a young migrant child and her mother. on his experiences like running away from

10:29 pm
see the children see they hope the message laid out in comic book form will reach. people were unaware of the plight of young asylum seekers living in mexico. really sad as we hope the comic book brings visibility to the needs of migrant children unto the entire process of migration. we hope it makes people more empathetic, because these are stories that are not easy to tell, but to this comic book, which is based on real stories, maybe that can affect the change. the representatives from saved the children are caring for more than 400 under age migrants at this shelter alone. though this is only one of many safe spaces for children sponsored by the organization, your mexico's border with the united states. children's rights groups estimate that one out of every 3 migrants that come to mexico from central america are children and teenagers. the vast majority from countries like 100, guatemala,
