A book titled “An African Story of our Time” authored by Kwesi Anim-Addo, has been launched to narrate the challenges individual migrants go through when travelling abroad in search for greener pastures.
The 31-chapter books recount the ordeal young Africans go through to avoid deportation upon migrating to England.
The book advances the situations, which triggered the quest for young Africans to travel in search of greener pastures and highlights the challenges associated with such ventures.
The book was written earlier in the 1980s during the era of military rule in Ghana.
Mr. Anim-Addo said the book was not published earlier because he was not sure it will be appreciated. He was grateful to the General Secretary of the Pan African Writers Association, Professor Atukwei Okai, for being the first person in Ghana to read the script after an initial meeting in 2008 and encouraged that the scripts were good for publication.
Mr. Anim-Addo advised Africans to be hardworking and continue to have hope in the economy of Africa saying, “the grass is not always greener at the other side”.
