Innocent Magambi ‘Refugee for Life’

students studying at UEL

My journey across Africa to find a place called home

Innocent Magambi will present his book ‘Refugee for life’ and talk about his personal experience of life as a refugee.

Innocent was born in a small refugee settlement in DR Congo in 1979. His parents had fled the tribal conflict in Burundi seven years earlier. The war broke out in DR Congo when Innocent was a teenager, forcing him to flee. Innocent in turn became a refugee: over the next decade he lived in numerous camps across Eastern and Southern Africa.

Refugee for Life is Innocent’s memoir. Poignant stories of injustice and loss are framed in the context of day to day life in a refugee camp. 

You will hear the voices of genocide survivors, refugee advocates and many others, as they provide insight into the events that caused Innocent’s displacement and subsequent life transformation.
