By: Mohamed Mansaray A brief knowledge about the book secret must have a lot of reality, our present is as the result of our thought in the past, this force of attraction has led many African to suffer in the hands of their own African brothers in the Sahara desert. Book Many Many Beginnings has written about different colors and the many innocent killing around the world, such Literature we all agree about the store of the old fashioned Boy yearning to rebuild the future using art and literature rather than embarking on a journey that will rather cost him his life. A journey along the Algeria Sahara desert has been describe by migrant in two words walk or die. A migrant after covering 8 miles journey has to sit and reimagine all she left behind for a better life and sadly life is the Sahara was like the world was coming to an end. In an inhumane and racist community here we went to bed hungry, sleep in the desert and feed on our own wastes. Oh hard I know! I should have stayed in my country and endure the bitterness and suffering maybe I should have been a change agent to build the future I want to live in and ever other person, she thought of this for a while. In a far distance was a trip of unknown gun men upon their arrival men were separated from women, I wouldn’t imagine that this night is repeating again, we have been forced to sleep with them and unfortunately 2 lady are already pregnant from this ugly situation, a land of no medical facility nor contracptive is available to us as migrant. I have never been abuse in my country like this. That’s night migrants men where discussing about how 13,000 migrants has been abound in the desert and only few made it to the Mediterranean Sea, the discuss around issue that has to do with their human rights violation and how helpless they are to fight back, even thus the IOM is playing a critical role to protect our human rights said a migrant. Migrant describe Life in a desert as brutal match with only two choices walk or die. Been forced to walk from Algeria along the Sahara desert to the rescued town Niger is indeed a work or die choice Algeria do not welcome nither accept migrant they are full of racist and do not have respect for life, in my very face women where rape, children where denny access to medical facility, migrant are in prison men are beating with cutlasses and we all alone force into slavery and hard labor. In a distress the sun, here I find myself in this new land where the sun has no barrier to the skin it burn like fire on the skin. Climate disaster is one of the natural forces that make the journey to the Sahara desert unfriendly to West Africans. Smugglers from my country told us that we are to pay $5000 for a safe trip to Europe. I has to hustle and sell all I have to embark on this journey for a better life, Sarah with tears in her eyes write home. Dear Mom, Life in the desert with us here is no difference from slavery a journey between walk or die. Your daughter, Sahar. Beyond imagination, I have to conclude that Africa is suffering from a civilized war which is forcing their citizens out of the country vai irregular migration. My learned friends call it economic crisis indeed I agree with them yet in-between the line finding solution to this circis there is a need to dialogue with political leaders for an urgent local solution to this urgent crisis. Art and literature for local solution have been proven as a tool for Africa greatest challenge called Economic Crisis (EC) and the major drive to such solution is decision made by it leaders.
