African diaspora seeks to strengthen ties with Africans

John Abraham Godson

Preparations are underway for a first ever summit in South Africa in June to create partnerships between the various nations and the diaspora communities around the world.

As part of these efforts, the African Union recently organized a gathering of lawmakers from Africa and the diaspora in New York.

The meeting, which was facilitated by the Office of the United Nations Special Adviser on Africa, brought together lawmakers, experts and scholars from Africa and the African diaspora.

Derrick Mbatha caught up with John Abraham Godson, who is part of the African diaspora and a Member of Parliament in Warsaw, Poland.
