To curb mass African migration, bring the jobs to Africa

11 Oct 2022  |  Mo Ibrahim Foundation
The article discusses the complex issue of African migration, reflecting on the author's personal experiences and their father's views on the subject. The father, once a refugee in Guinea, discouraged mass migration due to its potential to cause brain drain and weaken family bonds. However, the deteriorating conditions in many African countries, including civil wars and poor economies, have made migration a necessity for many. The article highlights that most African migrants remain within the continent and that they contribute significantly to the economies of their host countries. To address the root causes of migration, the author suggests that global leaders should invest in foreign and domestic firms in Africa, develop job-intensive sectors, and support better governance. The Mo Ibrahim Foundation is mentioned as hosting the Ibrahim Governance Weekend in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, to further discuss these issues.

What does the election of George Weah mean to the country’s youth?

01 Feb 2018  |  New African Magazine
Ahmed Konneh, a student and co-founder of SMART Liberia, discusses the implications of George Weah's election as President of Liberia, particularly for the country's youth. Weah, a former football star, is seen by many as a symbol of hope, representing a shift from elite to ordinary leadership. His story resonates with average Liberians, suggesting that non-traditional paths can lead to the presidency. However, there is also fear that Weah's lack of education and experience might lead to a troubled future. The article captures the divided opinions of Liberians, with some expecting positive change and others predicting a continuation of the status quo or worse. Konneh suggests that while Weah's intentions may be good, effective governance will require more than compassion and will depend on his ability to manage expectations and work with experienced individuals.
