Despite denials by federal federal government officials, slavery continues to be a means of life into the African nation of Niger
Lightning and thunder split the Saharan evening. In north Niger, hefty rain and wind smashed in to the commodious goatskin tent of a Tuareg tribesman called Tafan along with his household, snapping a tent pole and tumbling the tent towards the ground.
Huddling in a little, tattered tent nearby ended up being an additional household, a person, a female and their four kiddies. Tafan ordered the girl, Asibit, to get outside and stand into the face that is full of storm while holding the pole constant, maintaining their tent upright through to the rainfall and wind ceased.
Asibit obeyed because, like thousands of other Nigeriens, she came to be in to a servant caste that dates back more than 100 years.
