11:30 am

11:31 am
a young lawyer lets his fable u.n. job to make running shoes in kenya now let's start off with migration well many reasons why people migrate i for example came from god awful my studies and i'm still here in germany for work that's my story but we wanted to hear yours so we hit the streets of johannesburg and i mean i'm only 26 so as i remember this is spinning my world order on all of you and from what i make so i moderated yeah but in this space really i was planning for about the economy so they do now move to what's on the in age of 18 and move to south africa. i definitely migrate just because i have no idea what i like what's outside of this will i was kindly thinking of going to the middle east. it's kind of cheeky you buy
11:32 am
i don't know i don't know i think it'll be a good opportunity for me. to get it through america. i'm not sure i follow my great again because. it's good that you need a lot of energy to. liberalize yourself in a certain country. with the speed to move people. it's a lot of work. i'll be prepared to do that one the fabled. as we've all heard leaving home it's not always easy and unfortunately some people be high price for it now office reports takes us to the spanish canary islands gran canaria lives just 150 kilometers off the african coast there are almost daily reports of people risking their lives to reach europe and many find themselves stuck on the island without jobs. this
11:33 am
small harbor in southern gran canaria is full of memories for amadou and his friend i leave you for 7 days they travelled in a wooden boat over 1300 kilometers from senegal across the atlantic spanish to rescue boats picked them and 80 other passengers up and brought them to gran canaria. fully mazie they wanted to show us their boats but one of the rescuers says it has already been scrapped on. we arrived on the 27th of october nothing has happened since i have no work i have nothing to do what i can do is eat and sleep. here we can do anything for our families and centers like sending them money for food. shows. up was a fisherman in senegal he worked hard and even had his own business but he earned very little from selling fish and. he couldn't compete with the growing competition
11:34 am
from international fishing fleets. on gran canaria lives in a tourist hotel a temporary shelter for him and thousands of other migrants kicking a football is all the migrants continue to pass their time on. isn't like africa in africa everything with people in europe they want to see stickum and it's just like that. but it's not only the migrants that are caught in a crisis young spaniards like javier domingo is and his colleagues have been jobless for months normally when they work as waiters in tourist restaurants but because of the cold with 1910 demick holiday makers have stayed away for weeks the young men have organized protests and believe the numerous migrants make things worse. some accuse the protesters of racism tensions on the island are high.
11:35 am
the lot of the problem we want to be clear concerned about the mismanagement of the illegal immigrants and the in action of our government but we are not racists and we've lived here for years with people from different countries and cultures little by side with. the increasing tensions between migrants and islanders wary abu bakar dreaming he came here 12 years ago from mali and now he sees spain as his home grammy works as a social worker and uses his free time to help newly arrived migrants including i'm a do. you something i can nurse i always tell them it's not as easy as you think when you arrive you understand nothing you need to learn the language you need to get a right to stay status it all takes years but when i say this to someone in africa they respond you also made it and you know different from what's.
11:36 am
i do takes one suggestion very seriously he wants to learn spanish and uses his phone to practice spanish courses have unfortunately been put on hold due to the pandemic but i'm a do has learned to be patient. one cannot expect friend a great job immediately you must take baby steps nothing ever happens at once you move step by step. he and his friend still dream of reaching the european mainland and then travelling on to france or germany but their chances look slim as spain is clamping down on migration and sending more and more people back home. so what happens when the so-called dream doesn't materialize is it worth the risk taking such a dangerous journey for the young known on the other side. so many questions on my
11:37 am
mind but hopefully some of these questions can be unsaid as we move over to the italian island of sicily my colleague christine mon dieu on our team met with young africans their journey to europe and i'm now trying to make a living. in. the 77 percent is in italy this country is home to many young people who left africa they crossed the scorching so hard they braved the unpredictable minutes rainy and all in pursuit of a better life in europe today we're asking if the life they're living here was worth the risk they took to get a lot you're going to start out with you right now what does it take to make it in your tickets here. the docks a lot of their fault it takes a lot of it takes a great bravery to make it. through the military and police are the
11:38 am
1st steps it depends on what one is ruining from what one wants to see in him when you are right chris i'm going to come to you right now and we'll talk a little bit about coming here what you faced what you saw what you experienced. what i came to italy. not just. alone. like. us and most of them now in in the various contrie in africa because it was in d.c. for them it does it will do also with luck you know you know like most people live through the sahara desert they also did they went through this the a material where they were not that lucky most people have gone through the sea and most most of them and down there they've been around these drones so let's see i was really really really like lucky to be alive i was right in italy allege i'm going to come back to you because i'm picking up that the bright what the reality is is different from from the dream. that we had to be you know if we see enough or
11:39 am
is portrayed on. you know why do t.v. by the social media facebook whatever write mama off because suffering because. what are the sources that people i believe in equal own stories write what they have brought us what we are speaking now should be saying you are speaking with a web browser does not really have to decide it is a will not a committee did anyone see around us is that meant to be of course what most of all here does insist that's what they do here is to go on take it be joy in front of your fair lobby and that's really just information i read and i want to come see you ishmael because you tell us what life is like do you drive a ferrari because that's what people think they mean prosperity if in their life in iraq is this see as their life the equality in the hail in hell says because in as i'm put in able to be on trade and you are not if you are not
11:40 am
what are you going to do you go too far to the ground to dog may be only. up to 5 o'clock in the evening time in d.c. it's and i will give you 25 without food u. conn's of ivan that you cannot survive on that in italy here i leave it there because i want to come back see you chris mosul force like immigrants we have pressures from home people call i call paris call from any color like can you send me the skin you do the skin you did that did all that they forgot about like you have these like. that you are in a new place you know ishmael so. you you've made it clear that you're not living the dream in here and help me understand why that is the case. and most of us i want beer and sail the appropriate to to let us travel right because of what's seen now broad based and take it into your. fierce came and said ok if you want to get
11:41 am
a better eye if. it's intended to fife the best place for you to enter is europe and which is no troop l.h.a. you are a lawyer and you specialize in migration it's really is has new laws that make it more difficult for people who come through the mediterranean to be able to stay here legally talk to us about that when news asked for international protection until 2002 dozen 18 you were able to ask for 3 kinds of protections the 1st 2 kind of protection where the european once the 1st kind was an italian protection that was given to many people that were not persecuted from in their county and they were not coming from some countries where there is the war civil war right now is going to be more difficult because if they're not running away from a persecution or from a dental scoundrel we delegate you know humanitarian protection is not easy to get
11:42 am
a protection ok chris you know the journey that you took to get here. crossing the water the desert everything living in the camps. look at your life today right do you reckon it was all worth with it what i have to say what i went through. is not really wanted you know to come to this place to risk your life for the 4th place it's not really worth if you look at body it's ok so you know it's not whether it's relevant to come back to you because for somebody in africa was thinking about doing what you did what would you say to them the amount of money you are going to spend from west africa to get to europe you can use that to kind more neutral start from distraught and i bet you at the end of see you we see you all solved in a position so was it worth it for you coming here everything you went through for the life. living yesterday wasn't with it's not the life i'm living in today it's
11:43 am
not the kind of life i need election when i come back to you know because in this discussion now what are your final points i want to speak to our politicians and i call them say. you know because they are not looking at the interest the needs the vulnerability that constrain people to my grid because 30 gumbi out to senegal to african political leaders it is convenient even if we die in the streets even if we die in the us we can send remittances so i'm telling africans who are there that i am guilty for being here if you come here you are opening from your work you are running from changing africa so if i am speaking and if you can hear me today i am saying i should rock and then we should work on what is happening because the future is in africa but the real question is is the future in africa for africans we are all slaves we are discriminated we are stigmatized why is africa enslaved to
11:44 am
young for really never people the future is still there the question is who is this beautiful is if we offer comes when we all run from the from from the from the things that we should try to make up their. so you've heard from them and now we want to hear from you this is the story off of shattered dreams they left africa in pursuit of a better life and they're telling us today they have not found it instead they're saying that the life they've long been dreaming for is back in africa on the motherland it's a gauge on social media this is the 77 percent in italy. and i say. pretty revealing. thank you christine on the street the big. now if you guys want to watch the full debate you can catch it on you tube channel
11:45 am
africa and don't forget to let us know what you think in the comments section let's take a musical pause from. he's always sending strong messages across through music this is a brand new song could use a screw sleeve for a d w called combat corruption. let's go live to live who will be asking the man in the sixty's good influence do you cut short term let me look let me hear you cut me cut you call us me such. a belief was. that. the top journalists who think. you know. we have to come back. and we can fight
11:46 am
corruption by raising the living standards for us in the service of our less than manage $50.00 a month yes i understand that no one will fight and offer services over again it will be good fight corruption might chicken these politicians to rehab my dear sweet tooth watching this interview me good fight corruption by changing the situation to visit informed in opposition to impeach and became a corruption have become sick everybody needs a good cause if it ever speaking pick it up in many ways maybe just because we've never been in the fish tank you'll be some folks want to open up the costs a good chance it will be up to the muslims in the last few mugshots certainly the place we knew the muslims become our people yes we feel such. a plan but. please let's not. thanks
11:47 am
guys for that great message now so far we've had people sharing their migration stories with us to remind out of the 1000000 reasons why people one place to the. but let's now running to our next story in kenya where we meet a young woman who's prepared kenya for running shoes she gave up a high paying job in new york it's gone in a new challenge back home like about. many another layer of symbols bad and ready both nafta. co-founder and chief executive officer of and i spoke to at. the end i was created with a mission to bring them benefits of running back to kenya. as actually me broaden may who be my dad was in the air force i got on my side
11:48 am
international development from that i'm school of economics and the one thing that he blew me away was just how people he spoke about africa you know like every case study to africa if you're talking about dictatorships africa doesn't about tango africa so coming out of that i felt i needed to change something late days so much of you so much against so much beautiful things happening in africa that were not for the chinese you selected in development idea and they heard if i ever did something it would be something that definitely including development and at the same time uses sports. i have to make kenya other potential with all the famous athletes gotten from china sure you can do much more than just a few of us being a c.p.s. or i want to praise is always to be used in rocket teams how can their country benefit as a whole. and that's when i got the job with a united nations and then i moved to new york i was like so full of
11:49 am
like joy and those of destiny seeming to make here i am i'm going to change it was like i mean deceased or poignancy and lake where i like to be here and i mean. that's the kind of just get that and you stay there as t.v. guy and it wouldn't make a dangerous guy and all. you have a gene like goofus please don't get the golden handcuffs because there's just much more to life. there was an event in south africa i think obama went to that event but he just basically said if you want to change africa you have to come to the ground you can just do it from a distance at that point actually simply if you're talking to me so i basically left the united nations and decided to hand over everything and to just basically take a chance i'm full of my dreams. we had just been just up what does but equally there are a litter of people who are lay guy you're making a mistake he's going to make by taking this for granted some of the challenges of
11:50 am
moving back and if maybe you start you once you've. seen efficiency it had to go back you know i mean had to go back and this is when you see new and that way can't you just do you think there are definitely a lot of concerns in terms of right i mean back then you know the police excess the economy even the die led there's like there's just a matter of that but i only see. if we spend as much as if we could and i have the buddha where these drugs to when money is needed for another and i think if you know what you need a great story looks like i should grab my shoes break some records well as an entrepreneur now value a symbol clearly creates an image for herself well that brings us to another group of young entrepreneurs who are trying to carve out of their own business coffee is your gun there's number one and then exports crop but i'm sure recently the country's youth have been sidelined from the industry luckily some young people are now tapping into that industry helping you to wake up and smell the coffee.
11:51 am
coffee is he is going to go. to the country at least a $1000000.00 every day through exports but until recently the industry sidelined young people mostly because they do not own land to grow their crops. have access to family land in eastern uganda. his friends have come up with my idea to secure their slice of the cake. i'm going to take you through the. experience you're most welcome. at city for. coffee they do not sell the coffee rather they sell the experience of making it so you get. from that tree through the. process. it all starts in the fields right cherries are picked and then sorted.
11:52 am
we're now going to pile up this one we have there both being my sheet which for most of this thread called will. thank separating the coffee bean from the red cherry allows easy drying especially for specialized copies like espresso. but drying takes a couple of days. when the beans are already been women both the coffee. according to the something efficient roasting is a female affair. then the beans are pounded into coffee powder. and finally a delicious cup of coffee is made. in his community everybody is proud of the product. to feel a look because a lot employ more than plain to use and it's been
11:53 am
a great advantage to come up with this idea they use a lot they have improved over living through this process so it's a big advantage to the community. who need another young entrepreneur and uganda's capital kampala. to general cut about he is a consultant for risk working with the youth. aims to keep copy processing jobs in uganda upscaling young people because of exporting more need for the future of the domestic with culture so it is beginning it's beginning to appreciate. by being very good standard by standardizing their process and. over the coffee but edition where we have by young people involved in it is change we are now trying to see in because it's now a huge percentage kind of. tapping into the millions of jobs
11:54 am
in the coffee industry might solve some of uganda's huge unemployment problems. should be all hands on deck in helping address youth unemployment on the continent . and that's how you wrap up the show so what are your thoughts on the stories we've covered so let us know social media platforms or writers on e-mail to 77 i. will leave you now with a very special song it's why and i'd say again musician chris. you saw him in our street debate he's calling for the respect of migrants and refugees you know any time on song title of. meaning not fish that's accurate because we're human beings come to later it's life and i'll. get lucky.
