The Mediterranean Sea is fast becoming the World's Largest Death Trap for migrants desperate to flee the conflict and poverty stricken continent of Africa. Many are conscious and much aware of the dangers and possibilities of drowning in the sea, but circumstances beyond their control compel them to embark on this dangerous expedition.
Many have christened it as the " Worlds Largest Mass Grave" the Mediterranean sea is the cemetery of the determined soul who wants to reach Europe for a better life. Since 2014, more than 20,000 migrants and refugees have died at sea while trying to reach Europe from Africa.
People who drowned have their boat capsized in the Central Mediterranean, most of the victims of the shipwreck involves migrants and refugees fleeing conflict and seeking a better life in Europe.
The United Nations migration and refugee agencies, issues reports and visuals which are disturbing to see fathers, brothers, children and the elderly dying at sea.
Who walks into his own grave with an accomplished life? But the Mediterranean snatches the life from the living and does not give rest but tosses the dead from left to right until their corpse is found. It's a bait waiting to catch the innocent and feed their flesh to the fishes of the sea.
What hope and future of do we have as Africans? The whites from Europe and the America continent are astonished at the abundance of natural wealth, good climate and rich agricultural lands. Yet, we permit them to divide and colonize us and now that we are enlighten, why can't we put aside our differences and solve our own problems amicably?
The overzealousness and dependence on God or a redeemer like Jesus Christ to sacrifice himself to deliver our continent from the quagmire of poverty is obnoxious and folly. African leaders are mostly greedy and myopic hence their inabilities to formulate quality policies that would elevate the lives of the masses and prevent them from embarking on this dangerous journey.
Are we not capable of exploiting our own wealth for our well being. Our destiny is in our hands. Enough of these horrible news of people dying at sea. The earlier we realised our problems and solved them,the earlier we restructured our motherland.
