Would You Play a Game of Russian Roulette?

Hello people,

My name is Caroline Achieng Otieno, and I am a guest blogger at the Displaced African, and a regular contributor to The African Bulletin – Having lived in the Netherlands for the past seven years, and experiencing the good, the bad and the ugly, I must say that I have observed a lot going on in Europe. I feel sad for the many Africans, who escape war and other tragic situations, come into Europe through very difficult means (some even trekking the desert through Northern Africa) and when they get here, they face other hurdles in trying to build an existence for themselves and their families back home. What hurts the most is that the system set in place makes our African sisters do things they would not ordinarily do, just because of their legal status or the lack of it thereof. The following article is another version of the article I wrote for African Bulletin in the April issue, feedback is welcome…

Why Live 8 Sucked and What You Can Do About It

Why Live 8 Sucked and What You Can Do About It?


If you didn’t think I was odd before, get ready to believe I am. I was reading a great free report by Rich Schefren and in the midst of it, he asked us to create a faux-advertisement to hire staff to our organization.

Rich proposed that instead of thinking of what we offer as simply a job we should think of our firm as standing for a higher purpose and giving folks a chance to join that.

Now, I don’t own a firm, hence, the unedited, unproofed, “quite different” article today.  Felt good to write it, pretty darn good. Read more »

Would You Move in with Your Partner Before Marriage?

My co-host on SARFM radio (I get tickled silly that I can say that), Pammy, sent me an email asking me to check out a video.

The Topic of the Video: Should You Move in with Him?

It was 3 African women discussing whether or not they should move in with a man while living in the disapora. Check out the Youtube video right here:

What’s Very Cool About the Video?

Is its something that’s relevant to me and that I can relate to: I have many friends and acquaintances who have moved in with their romantic and sexual partners.

Sure its very common for Westerners to do it, actually here in Oz de facto couples have almost equal rights to marriage couples depending on the duration of their union, but very rarely is it discussed by us for us.

So Check Out the Video

Leave some Youtube comments and let them know what you think. If you have anything to add to the topic area, you are free to leave a comment below.

Have an awesome day,


Why Don’t We Call Ourselves African Australians?

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to participate in a documentary on the Ethiopian youth who live in commission housing in a suburb called Carlton.

Considering my shallow understanding of the topic area, I invited along a friend of mine from church -  big up to U – who just happened to be of Ethiopian descent and happened to be working in the migrant resource centre (not in Carlton though).
