In democracies like the one I live in, politics is, whether we like it or not, an integral part of our lives. In everything we read, everything we eat and even in everything we touch is a story interwoven with politics. We know of people who have given up their lucrative careers to come into politics and do community service; we know of committed “career politicians”, and we also know of the greedy and the slovenly type who live off public property. Therefore in politics, a...


Mauritius Island is not just about stunning beaches, the Sun, summer, beautiful sights, amazing food, delicious fruits, a rich folklore, a mix of cultures, hospitality and the “Paradise Island” that is portrayed on postal cards, describing perfect spots for tourists to spend their holidays. Since 1968, at the occasion of the Independence Day on the 12th of March, our National Anthem is heartily sung in every corner of the Island: “As one people, as one nation, in peace, j...

I once said: “Dans l'histoire des grandes nations, y a de bons temps et y a de mauvais temps, y a des hauts et y a des bas, et seulement ; le citoyen révolutionner, le peuple révolutionner qui sait qu’il faut réagir et qui connait comment réagir”. This means that in the history of great nations, there are ups and downs and only the revolutionary citizen who knows that he must react and knows also how to react. I chose to start with this simple introduction. We love our...

Each one of us loves his country. Personally, I have no problem in sacrificing my life for the good of my country, it's such an honor to me! I am sure that we all hate to see our countries suffering and we always wish that we could do something to help our nation; actually, I have no doubts at all that it's our duty and our responsibility to preserve the future of our country! I think the thing that makes me sad is seeing my motherland suffering. It's an awful feeling and I hope...

Many Nigerians have, in recent months, decried the low level of participation of the youth in governance. The issue has become a trending topic both online and offline but this did not just happen in an instant. During a national conference earlier this year, a coalition of youths brought the issue to the fore. They affirmed that the estimated population of Nigerian youths, which constitute about 70 percent of the population, is twice the population of Ghana and more than the p...

Once again our collective opinion on voice as a strong vehement Nigerian youth for a revolutionized nation cannot and will never be hidden nor intimidated to extinction. While the insurgents are maiming, killing, and kidnapping innocent Nigerians, the military that was supposed to be our strength as a nation has been compromised leading to the death of more officers than the Islamist groups themselves. The lives of Nigerians far north means nothing to political cabals but an instru...

Born and raised in Hong Kong SAR, my initial inadequate knowledge of factual political climate and human rights situation in China as a whole was due to reasons including, but not limited to; the Chinese government’s high political repression, insufficient respect of human rights, media and internet censorship, etc. All of which are gradually being localized in the H.K. as well. Moreover, a semi-covert mission that has been conducted by the Chinese government is the criminalizati...

We are in Mali this week to meet Fatouma. She tells us about her commitment to women’s rights, how she got where she is now, as well as about the role of youth in the Malian presidential elections that were just concluded.

I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at the University of Bamako, Faculty of Arts. Since 2007, I have...
