it seems people. want to do years do they have their future. megacities for the. good. news africa coming up in the program. spirit from euro some say that africa hasn't got the museums to house its own artifacts is that a fair argument. because of losing. in the house. species in the world of policing in kingdoms it's time to try. and climate change is forcing increasing numbers of me jazz for me to turn back on the actual additional nomadic lifestyle.
i mean my god you know and you are welcome to the program there's a kilometer or a 10 africa stretches now think about this for a 2nd if we want to look at many of our works and sacred objects we have to make a long journey because many of us got there throughout museums in europe a year ago french. just abandon these royal statues those looted by french clothing all forces that been in ones back but not much has happened yet micron's announcement was triggered by a reporter he had commissioned on the restitution of africa's stretches will talk to one of the report's authors in a moment but fest what are people seeing on the continent. high and african out on
display in a museum in africa something that is fairly unusual as many of africa's masterpieces are holliston europe cynicus museum of black civilizations and is an exception like many on the continent the museum's director wants this to change. is sure to win that things have been stolen africans are not going to ask to strip european museums of their works there that are perhaps a very valuable for these works have to be returned to the communities to which they belong as. in 2800 french president eminem akong rocked the museum would when he promised to return 26 why the statues and thrones looted from the kingdom of stone may today binning there some of the 5000 objects the country has requested returned from france the process of restitution is proving long and complicated finance minister sam balik 1st step last months when it gave this famous saber the weapon originally belonged to the roof religious leader and he's slamming.
something africa doesn't have the museums to care for the cultural heritage themselves museum director who kuhn refutes this. when we take them back assuming that we region agreement with all the parties both the authorities and the communities we can do whatever we want we could store them in the museums we could showcase them or return them to the sacred forest or look for people might even decide we don't want them i don't think anybody should tell us what to do with these objects. fair africans also want to reconnect with their past. history takes us back to our ancestors the black people and really portrays another picture this is our story. istari they want to be told in their own countries and on their own terms my
colleague christine moon to us bulgaria with selwyn saw easy senegalese economist on the co-author of a report on africa held in friends when it was released a year ago the report shook up the arts world with its recommendation that friends should return vast numbers of objects to african countries that request them something friends then from missed it would start doing. dr sol france has pitched to return african art affects by the get 20 twentieth's here are you satisfied with the progress. political point of view and what have been done is very few right france has promised to receive shoot after fax from the 1000000000 republic just us to do what we give the report to the french president we discuss with him one hour and a half and indeed in this discussion he said to start the process of course it's driven by resit you can do do do after effects but until now i don't know that they
have made a little progress because they haven't said put to what to do it's do. really have to say that the government radiates right to put to host the artifacts because they need to bring in infrastructure etc on that point a lot of people who are opposed to the race issue should make a point or you want that africans would be able to look after the artifacts what do you make of that it's a very bad arguments what will the 1st thing we've done is that we have made an offer. a can of that is thinks of african museums under this hour i phone 500 museums in sub-saharan africa you're the 1st surprised by the number of news and you have some countries like south africa nigeria kill ya that they have between 30 and. 50 museums and if you look at the number of objects the african director of music awards in the
short terms you have more of. if i should too cause them right and true question because the question is not the question of the museum were taken to museum they were taken to a house in spiritual spaces it will in a lot of places in the in kingdoms just like the truck and we have trouble across africa. to some way in 5 countries to see what would the local infrastructure in been right in cameroon in mali and some of it they can go in the museum they can come back in the communities do they can go to school and they were taken from yes just to they can go in university so the ecology is the place where you can host the object of interest in africa right. we have the the former aide you invested it to the us stuff. and she's been trending on social media we see ups of her
talking about how former colonial policy followed some particular continue to pillage africa 2 years ago was is that a fair representation of how things are at present i think it's just i think you just you can. only trust national companies that are in you know countries no friends jerry and expresses regret britto they have a lot of as much power relationship i was the it's a muslim it is our eye which states and when the negotiates contracts on or on gaza maybe in the middle. part you know to to be european companies and you know and this was by came to africans and it's a it's a question that is very complex and because this question is what and if the how these regimes were elected. are they are here for good for the interests of the middle african or for their just for the group. i will leitch to or not
and it's kind of you know it's kind of rude questions because you know it was produced from afghan society would be a good leadership there is very strong to be able to negotiate his own interests and to fight again these booboo despite what's between nation and it was support by do strong with the society but to have a source who society you have to nurture it you have to educate people to have a free space and it's a kind of you know that brings me to my next question do you think that former colonial power is still feel that they are superior to africans i think of these imaginary of superiority of control. there is. in the society that is taught in how the series towards is how they represent themselves how they who present their culture than their knowledge their civilisation and there's a work to do there to show let you know it's kind of it's about do narrative of the
reality of the contribution of each civilization to the global and the human civilizations in the imaginaries of the imperial imaginaries that is long lasting there is now you know in not in all people but you know in you know in the space is also it was. a problem that it's not like you look at you very much. now for money and their livestock have traversed west africa's are it's their region for centuries there never had been search for grazing land and water. that's all farmers in the past are full of these knowledge of the land. kyra devon through drought spots these days climate change of course in the sun helps to dry out rapidly threatening their lifestyle. for traditional full lonny people tending to cattle is
a way of life across the plains of new. drive the animals across ancient trails in search of water and pastures but these days keeping their livestock well watered is an increasingly difficult task. during the dry season we always have a water problem it rained earlier this year so the ponds and watering holes were full but the drought came back the watering holes dried up and we had to come back to this well to water the animals. no matter how fatherhood is rome they face the same problem the sahara desert is swallowing up vast tracts of pasta land each year some for lani are considering stopping a lifestyle that their people have maintained for centuries. i don't think we can carry on breeding anymore with climate change things are becoming more complicated for us not to mention what will happen in the generations to come.
as well as the spreading desert conflict with farmers over land has also slashed livestock numbers as a result many full arnie's are settling in urban areas in the hope of finding work for this her to turn god moving to town has brought to security he hopes wages are low and he has many miles to feed the number of problems in a city we sometimes i struggle to eat unlike when we lived in the brush with most. of it doesn't even cover on needs. new shares main livestock union is running programs like this dairy farm to help me who have given up. is one of the 300 women who make cheese and. before leaving i sold my animus to pay for my children's schooling when all my animals were gone i left in order to help my family after several tries i realized there
wasn't earning enough money that is why except as a chop in the dairy farm i thought of unless in the me a boy. from across the sahara will have gathered for the yearly garo all was sold a festival. meant dong ceremonial clothing. where makeup and finger to seduce their wives. c but when the festivities draw to a close the full on the lead the hoods back into the sun hell and an uncertain future. that's it for now from did any news africa you can catch all our stories of our website on facebook page we need you now with pictures of the full on the in the chat as they go about their lives by for now i'll see.
2 and that's when things like the issue that he said so i think i said what they thought was often we get less fights this isn't as equals without insulting the one this is a scene from when it was stole ping rabbit a new film from also when i carly in the link which if cinemas of this christmas. and welcome to. the film is based on the bestselling children's book of the same name by british author judas com the story deals with the refugee experience of
jews in nazi germany told from the viewpoint of a 9 year old go his bowl. fast if you're going to come in this one come unifies this i thought this had sentimental to one side one doesn't somebody you. just thought needed and he took. the time it's a problem the clock speed how many. wins the election the family narrowly escapes arrest by the nazis leaving everything they have behind they flee across europe to freedom. done and what finally convinced me to make this movie was that i found this perspective so you.
