Africa's Migrant Problem

Did you know that there are more Europeans in Africa, than Africans in Europe?

In South Africa only, there are 6million-plus Europeans. France which is the biggest European country with African immigrants has 4.5 millions Africans (more than 70% are from North Africa: Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia).

In Zimbabwe only there are more than half a million British and other europeans, which is about 25% of the 2million-plus African immigrants in UK coming in from 55 countries!

Also, did you know that there are more Arabs in Africa than in the Middle East. And, there are more Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis in Africa than in UK and all Europeans countries combined.

The World Bank estimates that Africa has about 30 million international migrants, but the size of its diaspora, including unrecorded migrants and second- and third-generation migrants, is significantly larger.
