Actress Ufuoma McDermott writes on Slavery in Libya

Nollywood actress, Ufuoma McDermott has lent her voice to condemn the barbaric act of slavery ongoing in Libya. According to him, following the story her sister, who returned from Libya told her years back, she is not surprised that such crime taking place in the country.

"PLEASE GO THROUGH PICTURES WITH CAUTION.  My sister travelled to Libya some years back when Gaddafi was in power. She told tales of how beautiful, rich and well organised the land was. And even though she objected to his dictatorship, she admitted that Libya was by far better than many other African countries.

Then Gaddafi was killed.

Today all you hear about #Libya are horrific stories of anarchy, inhuman treatment to other humans, hunger and abject insecurity that pushes the sane to insanity.  While I'm shocked, I can't say I'm totally surprised.

You cannot give off HATE and expect those around you to absorb love.

Because of bad governance and poverty, we Africans have allowed hate a permanent place in our hearts. And so even the removal of a dictator shows how mature we have become in hate and disregard for ANY human life. If you subject your dictator to such, what is a mere immigrant life to you other than slaves?

You overthrow a government in blood bath; your people watch and accept it as the norm. (I respect the Zimbabwean military and the tactics used to remove Pa Mugabe from power.)
HATE (and disregard for the law) will only do us harm.

I sadly do not have a solution but I know  #LoveWillFindAWay #LoveConquersAll#LoveCoversAMultitudeOfSin," she said.
