There's a lot of coverage of Washington's financial woes on African front pages, proof, if any was needed, of the observation that when America sneezes, the rest of the world risks pneumonia. But there's local news, too.
The Westgate tragedy continues to make news in Kenya.
In this morning's Nairobi Standard, we read that the authorities have not yet retrieved the bodies of five attackers believed killed in last week's siege.
The Kenya Defence Forces on Monday revealed to MPs that they suspected the gunmen had retreated to one corner of the shopping centre, where they died and their bodies are covered by rubble.
According to the Standard, the revelation raises more questions over the progress of the investigation to identify the perpetrators of the terror attack that led to the deaths of 67 people.
Special units of the Kenyan Defence Forces, Interpol and forensic experts from the US, UK and Germany are still at the mall as the probe continues.
The Kenyan Red Cross says 39 people are still unaccounted for.
The Daily Nation gives pride of place to Samantha Lewthwaite, the so-called "White Widow" who is being hunted on suspicion of leading the Nairobi massacre. The Nation reports that she was secretly married to a former officer in the Kenya Navy, quoting a confidential Scotland Yard file.
Her husband is identified as Abdi Wahid, who is currently in Europe.
Wahid was arrested in 2011 when police discovered that his house in Mombasa had been turned into a bomb factory by Lewthwaite and her associates. He was never charged.
He was previously identified as her landlord, the paper reports, noting that it was not clear how much he knew about his wife's terrorist activities.
There's a chicken story on the front page of South African financial paper BusinessDay. Or perhaps a war story.
The headline reads "Poultry firms braced for EU tariffs battle" and the report says that South African poultry producers won a battle against cheap imports on Monday when Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies announced tariff increases on five categories of imported chicken products. But, says BusinessDay, the war against the European chicken is continuing.
The tariff increases announced by the minister yesterday relate only to non-European chicken imports.
European chicken enters South Africa duty-free under the bilateral trade, development and co-operation agreement.
The South African Poultry Association estimates that about 80 per cent of South African chicken imports are from Europe.
A separate story in BusinessDay reports that South Africa's trade deficit widened in August, hitting a seven-month high, as strikes cut mining output and a weaker rand failed to boost exports.
Exports fell by nearly eight per cent and imports by 0.1 per cent.
The cumulative deficit for the year has now risen to 7.9 billion euros compared with 5.1 billion euros in the same period last year.
In Uganda President Yoweri Museveni is on the front page of the Daily Monitor denying, once again, that he has any plans to install his eldest son in the presidency when he decides to retire. Museveni has been in power for the past 27 years.
In a weekend interview with Al-Jazeera television the president reminded the world that Uganda is not a monarchy, making it clear that there are no plans to have his son, Brigadier Muhoozi Kainerugaba, replace him as leader of the country.
Kainerugaba is currently the commanding officer of the Special Forces Command, an elite military unit that guards the First Family and sensitive installations.
In May, suggestions that Kainerugaba might be imposed on the country as a replacement for his father at the presidency were made by the former coordinator of national intelligence services, General David Sejusa, who claimed that those opposed to the plan risked elimination by presidential murder squads. Sejusa now lives in exile in London.
