|EN ROUTE TO
by Michael Ohan
This book exposes the unheard, the unknown and the incredible filtered from the survivors of human trafficking from Africa to Europe, across the Sahara desert and the Med Sea; it's a story of unimaginable love in the midst of despair. How about a few days in ‘a republic within a republic’ in Morocco called No Man’s Land? And another few days in a notorious hamlet in the middle of nowhere in the Sahara desert called 'seven kilometres from hell'? And in the mist of this hell on earth a man gave his life to save the woman he loved... who lived to tell the story.
This is the story of a boy born and raised by a powerful witchdoctor in a little village in Africa. He lived among witches and wizards,was influenced and nurtured by them in the tradition of his people, yet he could not belong. It’s the story of a boy caught between the trappings of the so-called western civilisation and his own people’s vanishing civilisation. With incredible and spellbinding stories of exploits by his very powerful witchdoctor-father and his cohorts, he explains to you the core aspects of the African culture and identity exemplified in the audacity and potentiality of the mysterious African power called voodoo. He gives you clarity of the African person and dramatises the mysterious powers that a few people in Africa still possess today which is commonly called ‘black power’. This book reveals to you what Africans have lost in transit.
