Episode One

Migrations from one country to an other is great idea as it has created great impact on globalization and culture.

During the civil war in Sierra Leone, many Sierra Leoneans who where lucky enough travel to overseas through a refugee programs to seek refugee.

After the war many made a new home in USA and some other countries in Europe where they find a better life for themselves and their relatives in Africa.

Sadly, after the war majority fight for citizenship rather than coming back home.

Majority of these people do come every holiday season in Africa as Jacee (Strangers) with a change culture and life style, our young people admire then so much.

The good thing about these people is, locally they are heros in their families as they will help majority of family members to be uplifted from poverty, extending hands to support with construction of house, health care, education and food to family members.

For these reasons, we have a belief that anyone without a family representative in overseas is still consider poor despite all the effort they may applied for sustainable living.

The most interesting things that happened, even in national and local politics, someone with an overseas background always has an advantage over someone who is only limited to Africa regardless of how hard working you may be.

This is the genesis of irregular migration.

Libya as a place of conflicts has today become the next crossing point to enter Italy.

The truth is this journey is not friendly and many young people have lost their lives during this journey just because of the love of Europe.

Is it that African don’t trust Africa for their success?

Join me for the next episode..
