:''Not be confused with the magazine Focus on Africa or the radio programme of the same name broadcast on the BBC World Service.'' ''Focus on Africa'' is a BBC news programme broadcast on BBC World News globally and on local partner channels of the BBC in African countries. The programme was presented by Komla Dumor each weekday from its inception until his death in January 2014. The programme includes news, sport and business from across Africa and around the world. The programme was closely related to ''Dira ya Dunia'', an African-focused programme broadcast on ''BBC Swahili''; which noticeably used the same title sequence.


''Focus on Africa'' is aired from 17:30–18:00 GMT (18:30-19:00 BST in summer time) on weekdays on BBC World News. The programme also airs on affiliate networks across Africa who broadcast it as a prime time news programme.
