Please do join the conversation by sending your questions and comments now on Twitter @AfricaBizRadio and you can tag me @mkalinda #TalkingToAfrica. Illegal immigration from Africa to Europe is significant. Many people from poor African countries embark on the dangerous journey for Europe, in hopes of a better life. The main aim of migrants is to reach European soil - be it mainland Europe or the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla or islands in the Atlantic and Mediterranean. But first the migrants must cross great distances.​They go through dangerous routes, such as having to sea cross to Canaries, crossing Sahara, guerrillas and crossing the desert. Sadly some illegal immigrants die during the journey and most of them who don't get asylum get deported back to Africa. This issue of illegal immigration is witnessed even within our continent and countries. The reasons, the challenges, the opportunities, and also what this phenomenon does to the narrative of Africa in the wider international discourse will be discussed.
