(3) Africa 53: Neocolonialism, homosexuality and Africa

Imagine the stories, the knowledge and the political, economic and social oversight you would have if – like lawyer and journalist Dr Feyi Ogunade – you had travelled to 53 African countries? 

African Union

Dr Ogunade’s travels across the continent have been largely due to him working for the African Union. During his travels he has fought for the rights of Black Mauritanians to remain in their country after the government ordered their expulsion in the late 80s.

He is now working to develop a watchdog body that aims to monitor and ensure the African Union delivers on its set objectives.

I spoke to him to learn more about his experiences, which has been broken down into three podcasts. In the final and third podcast instalment here, Dr Ogunade talks about the rise of Asian investment across Africa, the controversial topic of homosexuality and its place on the continent and his future business plans.

You can catch up on the previous two podcasts below. The first episode features Dr Ogunade who talks about corruption and nation building here. In the second episode, he explores as to whether a United States of Africa is a possibility.

The podcast is based on questions from MisBeee Writes readers. Music in this podcast comes from Atakora Manu & His Sound Engineers.
