This is a Podcast for African ex-pats around the world. The Migration Generation is a series of interviews discussing the migration journeys of Africans who left to start new lives out in the world, and those they left behind. I aim to provide a balanced discussion of views so I will not only interview those who left or are leaving, but also those who stayed because they wanted to, those who have returned after living abroad, and those who want to leave but can't. The aim is to share the different perspectives of everyone so we can all have a better understanding and maybe be a little kinder.
Nikki and her family are making plans to move from Cape Town, South Africa to the UK. Cape Town is often considered to be one of the most beautiful and best places to live, so why would anyone want to leave?
Find out why this mom of two and her husband are leaving South Africa for a new life in the UK.

This is the first interview I've done for my Migration Generation Podcast. In it, I interview Laeticia Corder, a South Africa mom who immigrated to New Zealand from South Africa in 2019. When I met Tish, and for some time after, I thought she would be one of the last people to leave South Africa. But I was wrong. Obviously.
In this podcast, I ask her what it was that made her want to leave. She also had a fairly unusual route to her new home in New Zealand. She touches on the aspect of how they left South Africa, the paperwork, and visas etc. This is her story of how she left to start a new life in New Zealand, and why.
You can read about it on my blog.
Please follow Tish on her Instagram and Facebook page at Candid Corders.
This is my story of migration from Africa. The first time I left for the UK I was 19. I returned nearly 10 years later with my South African husband. We had our two little girls in Zimbabwe and then moved to South Africa 3 years later. After 5 years in South Africa, we then returned to the UK.
Everything was always fine ... until it wasn't.
This was our reality. These are the reasons we kept on moving. We are part of the migration generation.

Welcome to The Migration Generation Podcast. As a Zimbabwean, who is married to a South African and raising our daughters in the UK, I wanted to start a conversation for other expats like us to share their stories. Hopefully, by sharing our stories of immigration and our lives out there in the world we can provide help, guidance and support to others who are considering the immigration process.
I will also be talking to people in Africa who are supporting the #ImStaying movement and who don't plan to move or who have possibly even moved back to Africa after spending time abroad.
