With all the headlines about African migrants trying to get to Europe, it’s often easy to lose sight of those in the diaspora who’re actually doing the opposite journey.
It’s hard to pin down exactly how many Africans in the diaspora are moving to the countries where they – or their relatives – were born.
Whether it’s the desire to reconnect with their homeland or the ambition to start a new business - the motivations behind these journeys can vary wildly.
But some nations are welcoming them with open arms.
Ghana, for example, where named 2019 the ‘Year of Return’ to encourage members of the diaspora to visit their country.
Relocating is not easy though, which is why I’ve been asking: What opportunities and challenges await these so-called "repats" on their arrival?
