| 05 September 2022 | 15 minutes
"Nothing pushes you to take the bitter option like having a worse bitter option. Our country is suffering from unemployment and my son dreams, like his peers, to have a family. Irregular migration is easier than staying here and watching people develop while he is helpless and humiliated by the lack of resources. I will not wait until I see him hang himself," he said.
