What Kwese TV boss suggested as solution to the migrant crisis in Africa

This seems to be one of the most practical solutions to the problem.

In a recent interview with the Cable News Network (CNN), Mr Masiyiwa stated many of Africa’s youth perish in their quest of crossing to Europe. This journey is usually made through the Sahara desert and the Mediterranean sea on the coast of Libya.

He, thus, called on African youth to stop this dangerous journey and stay on the continent.

"You don't have to cross the Sahara. We can create solutions," he said.

This message by Masiyiwa is considered timely as many youths are perishing and risking their lives on this perilous journey.

An exclusive investigation by CNN discovered that many of these potential migrants usually fell into the hands of kidnappers who sold them into slavery in Libya for as low as $400. This discovery has led to a global outcry to find a solution to the Libyan problem.

His solution to the migration crisis

"I believe sharing ideas with each other is so important to the future of the African continent," Masiyiwa says.

"I realized that if we don't do something to help young people create jobs in the African economy... that Africa's progress would be reversed. I understand we face the problem of corruption, bribery, bad policies. But it doesn't mean you should take to crossing the Sahara or the Mediterranean."

"We see the drownings... in the Mediterranean, young people trying to get to Europe," he adds.

"So this is my own way as well to try to respond to that crisis which is to say, 'hey' to young people. 'Listen, let's do something. We can create jobs. You can be entrepreneurs, or you can work for entrepreneurs. You don't have to take this incredible risk.”
