We take the temperature of Kenya's economy ahead of next month's election. The BBC's Vivienne Nunis in Nairobi finds out how voters feel about their standard of living. We ask opposition leader Raila Odinga what he would do if elected president. And we hear from Raphael Tuju, secretary general of the ruling Jubilee Party. Political commentator Danstan Omari looks at the promises being made by the candidates. The BBC's Will Bain reports on the influential Kenyan political satire programme XYZ. Plus as the latest wave of summer visitors breaks over some of Europe's oldest and most beautiful cities, David Randle, director of sustainable tourism at the University of Southern Florida, tells us why some cities are introducing restrictions on visitor numbers.
