6:02 pm
now begun what is the feeling that. well right now i'm standing right in front of the stadium this is where the state premier is actually meeting in an hour of time and we just experienced how locals here help the people of kenya as we're getting into a huge fight so there's a lot of tension between the people there was actually one woman standing up and saying you know there's a lot of aggression against refugees and that's what she came for and a lot of others stating their experience in kenya at the moment their fear of going out because that's what they say because of the foreigners here in the street and well this is the stadium this is where the state premier will be and let me take you over here because these are the counter demonstration these of the demonstrators who want to greet who want to say hello to the state premier and want to express their anger this is the demonstration of. a local organization
6:03 pm
a very about the foreigners here income is a very devout a lot of things happening in. the politics of the sex only in state so when the state premier michael crutchlow holds this town hall meeting in the football stadium behind you what to do what can he say to deescalate tensions there . i believe this will be a hard task many people who go in there they could also march behind me in the in the protest many people are very angry they want to express their anger and also some woman one woman old for example she told me that she doesn't want to talk she just wants to express their anger there will be questions there will be questions about. the events taking place here and i think the only thing the state premier can do right now and his team is to listen and to see trying to calm the situation
6:04 pm
it's not an easy task. ok linda well let's take a look at life in care that's a city where violence and hatred of foreigners house dominated recent headlines. a snapshot of daily life in kemet two hundred cooling runs a cafe in an art center it's a bit of an ivory tower he says here things are fine. but he also knows the city has a problem with right wing radicals. we don't see marauding bands of murderers nazis in the streets every day but things happen and instrumental wires it and use it as a pretext to whip up a crowd. last sunday eight hundred took to the streets in response to the killing of a man the night before on monday the far right scene mobilized about five thousand demonstrators and they were not just locals the rally wasn't about mourning the dead man it was a protest the state premier of saxony is coming to camp it's later today to hold
6:05 pm
a town hall meeting. in ghana what would you like to tell him about what's been going on here. before that he's totally misunderstood the situation and that he's out of his depth this is given the right wing radicals of platforms and they're rallying their forces it wasn't just people from committee on monday but from all over germany i find a painful storage the student. is there a general sense of frustration among local people are there problems with refugees here this man's answer shows how rejection of neo nazis and concern about the presence of foreigners in cannes it's not always so far apart what's it like living here. this is not what i expected i like to sit in the park when the weather is good but i see more and more foreigners there and they behave as if the time belongs to them. and they don't sit on the benches but on the backs of the benches
6:06 pm
with their feet on the seats drinking beer that that's not acceptable so i'm not a right winger but it bothers me it's just not right to simply shift to the same gets me. a city theatre companies rehearsing for a video with dunces from twenty four countries we ask if they feel they're under threat they say no. but in fact it's not that simple. we tend to presume probably we tell them they should try to avoid any possible problems if they go home late they should go home together or not alone of course they're all trying to cope with the situation. it's not easy and kennett's living together takes practice we have some catching up to do. most people we talked to here say they want to have nothing to do with the far right demonstrators but there is something that bothers them they feel marginalized the mayor offers an analysis. just the city has changed it will take
6:07 pm
a while for some particularly the elderly i would say to get used to the way things are now days it's different now. and in the meantime nobody seems to have an answer to that question what with all the heated debate the thirty five year old killed on saturday night is no longer the focus of attention flowers and candles but no crowd of mourners. about to linda in the cabinet said linda so we saw in the report that's the strong and the migration a sense of themselves in the city of what people on the other side of the argument saying they might making their voices heard. they're making their voices heard but them they could be probably much louder right now what is happening here is the counter demonstrators to distant street and so the rather large left wing demonstrators they said they will not protest today they said you know they really feared for their lives on monday that the police couldn't really secure them so
6:08 pm
that's the reason why they're not here today that's what they say but i think another reason is also. that anti right extremist protests were never really strong here in cabinets and people are trying to really get their forces together and try to demonstrate on saturday because saturday there's actually more demonstration coming up the far right party he is calling for demonstrators to take to the streets and there's a couple of counter protests also on the way so you know today might be very quiet because there's heavy police presence but cameras will be will be a place where we're looking at for the next couple of days as well. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world even defense ministers have failed to resolve an impasse resulting from italy's refusal to continue to take in migrants rescued at sea the government in rome once the e.u.

6:10 pm

6:11 pm
be one told d.w. about his role in uganda's party takes nobody should look at me as a messiah nobody should look at me as a solution i'm just part of the puzzle and you out there that i was that is watching me you also part of that puzzle not to do it unless if we choose to do it to get that and yes that is this solution because if we are to attain. what we want as a country they need to get. a large majority of ugandans population is under twenty four and many see they thought the six year old hopes to as their voice so would not be when he's presenting me. is a voice of me as a youth because me twenty years because what do you think is real and it is this you've seen will come from an entirely socially he speaks a lot of things and neutrally speaking i wouldn't. say that he inspires me
6:12 pm
like. going to the street and doing whatever he has been doing because there are other ways of handling things yeah but very present my voice really represents my voice because he talks about the things that i think. and he's a youth he talks about unemployment education or option despite this supports a book he one enjoys especially among young people mainly in the copy to accomplish prison show in the seventies government seems to have a different perspective of the margin politician who is also bottling treason charges in court does the. moment and i don't think it is largely that that he's even viewed as the president to be or of course there's been a lot of framing around events are on him. by his p.r. group and on his other handlers where he's been portrayed largely as
6:13 pm
a victim but this is just a fleeting moment it will probably pass. but the wine was voted to parliament last year in a by election where he defeated four challengers including one backed by president morsy even. less than two years in office this has been strongly critical of governments. anyone who is a serious politician needs to sit back and evaluate that who is would be weighing reprise into when he talks about people power you know what is he trying to say is in there any weight in the words that he's expressing to us today right and shouldn't the president to keep. the rig a star has enjoyed more than fifteen years of a successful music are you know he sees making it in entertainment has been an
6:14 pm
uphill struggle but challenging a government that has been in power for forty two years could prove to be his biggest struggle yet. once loyal is a necklace of hero he joins us from uganda's capital kampala welcome to day to you so your client was charged with treason what was your response to that. challenge for the crime and treason is a capital offense the tracks of death penalty and. he says child that must not make it must be a child based on concrete evidence or community in the instance case we have not yet seen any credible evidence to suggest in the very least that probably why on and yet accused persons were working in the absence of treason so the chinese are really laughable i think that they don't fall apart but you so now you're above you i was supposed to attend court today but didn't say will he appear for his next

6:22 pm
argentinian currency has lost forty five percent of its value against the dollar the country's central bank has spent weeks desperately selling off its currency reserves in an attempt to stabilize the peso but to no avail nor has president morrissey omak rees appealed to the international monetary fund to speed up disinvestments from the country's fifty billion dollar credit line foreign investors and the public have lost faith. and we're going to the reason though the money it doesn't trust the government and especially its economic team and i think that if the finance minister and the central bank president caputo don't step aside very soon things will get much worse it's not a case of poor economic decisions the main problem is that those in charge of lost credibility is going to be very is it only if you know. if a goat is in a dollar. and yet until recently the center right president was seen as
