Eye on Africa – Discrimination at the border: UN condemns racism against Africans fleeing Ukraine

  • Whatsapp

Ukraine’s government sets up a special hotline for Africans and other foreign students trying to make it out of the country amid Russia’s invasion. Meanwhile, an international coalition of activists file an appeal to the United Nations over racism at the country’s borders. We hear from the UN’s Special Rapporteur on racism and xenophobia, E. Tendayi Achiume.

Also, Liberia’s “zogos” are seen as a security threat. We bring you a report on these marginalised young people who are often blamed for deadly, anti-social behaviour. Many are former child soldiers. 

Finally, we take a look at how Kenyan authorities are trying to boost Covid-19 vaccination rates.
