from west africa and around niger with dreams to hit the big the result. i'm exploring population and bring economy what as the economy booms for them, the gap between the rich and the poor gifts whiter. this is michael cook, probably the biggest, floating slum in the world. about 250000 people live here on legal still. there is limited access to solicitation services, electricity schools or even clean water. i'm just looking at this one and he's on the work he has a very strong smell of yes. need to be decades of law. should just you mean it's that we've been leave what came they show me the was born and raised in michael. he has agreed to sure around his home this is actually
7:33 am
i slept with i slip with my breath. busy furniture is like, this is the 3rd is just this is where pick up, but this is, this is the good news for what to take a what i say in this coming week. we believe, you know, believe my money. but every, every money this is related to that would be also your $1.00 isn't one might be successful. so we don't offer anything disney anymore. that's all that governments. i'll do this for 60 percent of league ocean leave in slums and course our communities. many informal settlements, also risk demolition as the government expands the city. but just a 15 minute drive from michael league was island. most nigeria and celebrities and
7:34 am
billionaires called the school for the vast majority of young and i, jerry and withdrew, leaving here is about as unimaginable as watching the sky. yes, that doesn't stop the sky high purposes. bryce's, illegal score, lead, poverty, and only imaginable will exist within driving this. what economists worry, the bubble of wealth and ready c, p cannot last. such inequality could was seen insecurity and leave 1000 in it vicious cycle of poverty. what before poor, poor them out of poverty, you need the right level of access for this. accessing several dimensions. number one is access to finance. it won't education, health care. while the reach the sheltered lives on legal island, insulated by their mansions and wealth communities like michael,
7:35 am
just about your heads above water. what, how long this dynamic will last? if anyone's guess, they're going to stay in market for a little longer. this informal settlement started as efficient village years ago, but today it has grown into a metropolis on stilts. the local state government has threatened to demolish it several times, but us faced resistance from people who call it home. major hoss, some of the wealthiest people on the african continent. so why does it please like mckoko still exist? that is what my colleague it had kamani finds out. and this week version of asked you to beat ah, hello and welcome back to the 77 percent. this week we are in lagos, nigeria, more specifically where in muckle and informal area in this place. and so we're wondering how to those people who live in extreme poverty,
7:36 am
live side by side with some of the richest on the continent. and what does that disparity do? so society? well, i've got here a panel of very good looking people who are ready to speak to me, and i'm gonna start with henry who works for oxfam. this is the 1st time, but you're here, michael, could just give me your views so far. what, what do you think i haven't quite seen or if people are impoverish? as i'm seeing here today, i will say in an environment asa visited as some scene here today. i won't quite stay in lack of government present like i'm seeing here today is, is quite disheartening. i must say. all right, let me speak to henry because i wanted to ask him, having grown up, you grew up in michael korea and what growing up there was light, so green of him. okay. for me out seeds, a privilege, good to privilege and it says that i had to, you know, try as much as was who linda by the do. yes. going with parents difference. i to get there indefinitely. you really want to push you to do more, more in, in
7:37 am
a scenario by your appearance too, or no really day to keep it on. even the environment you find yourself are people are not pushing dots, a level of education in h o u w of thousands of children. bruner on the streets. no. going to school. yeah. to bore. i'm just up what you my parents out to get it on the fight. he knew the law fight for me to make sure that i degree vindication. right. so what you're describing jay's, what academics would say is a cycle of poverty j. daniel, is it something that you also experienced? no, you didn't grow up in local, but as an informal settlement as well. well, it was the experience similar to what we're observing minus similar, but not this extreme. because i mean coming from a place where you have to constantly provide for yourself, you have to constantly do things for yourself, just like, oh, my kind of colleagues said that the governments are not really interested in our well being. we've seen on government organizations come down to these communities just to take pictures because they want to post or social media. they want to make
7:38 am
it look like they're doing something. so i think what is the real problem? it's not that we don't have the resources, but the problem is they really don't see this. people are a bit before before we before we get to the 2 of you, let me invite sir the other daniel. yes, we have 2 daniels and 2 henry. as i hope you can keep up where the gobs every year when the budget is read out, there's a lot of money being pumped into the country. why isn't it getting here? it's been a systemic issue for people not to be a butcher for government. are supposed to get there for the needs of people living is going to speak, but to take care of their dear you so much greeting so much or problem of people not on a sunday funding. there is need for people to be to be taken care of. so leadership is a major problem and that is all your local. all right. one, me, it had something to say to me and then henry all gets, and what's daniel, i say this is like this. i'm not developed, not because the government goes on with that issue developing well because the government and society, the government is bent on commercializing, places like this. so places like these items slide by to government and from rights
7:39 am
that they are sold, disappears to some government officials on that in 2 years this, this is 115 going to be more used. and then if that happens in 5 years, you're going to see it fancy sta, pierre. that is going to be sold them rich people that are buying the sim assets that we have be nigeria. okay. let me ask henry, because having in this community, was that a fear that you had because i've had it said that, yeah, people don't know if tomorrow they went to wake up and their house is going to be under water. some of them though, really once you're in a very house, because you're scared of him by tomorrow, now to go my just corman take all of us who is so why am i doing this for the morning when i'm looking at it? if governments want him to have a dispute, what he, what, okay, what has social life with, how did you want to keep surviving? because this week washer ment, okay. then it's a fish on water. eat yet, going to take them out of what is the way addicted in tree. let me, let me, let me ask for you for a 2nd here because based on this, on the, in the rooms you sit with is the plan to get rid of informal settlements. like
7:40 am
mccorkle, i'm not telling you that some of this is, are not happening or you get to me, but we, what i know right now d, d, d, present. gov. know we have in lucas did is a very, very, as the proxy governor, like, you know, he's very emphatic. but the question is, why hasn't that governor brought schools, hospitals, police stations to this place if you think so highly of it, okay. when we talk about developments, when we talk about said goods, it's not just an automatic sin or you get to me it's, it's, it's b text got dropped process. so for me, i will, we are getting rid of these very please, because i know data sometimes in the future. anything can come more or you go to me . i know i don't, i don't understand that. so you don't develop it because of what might happen in the future. no, no, no, i'm not saying it's not going to be different loops. i don't even know that the police ladies does as i'm just having the idea to do. okay, daniel, ah, let me,
7:41 am
let me, let me come to henry and daniel, you're itching, talk to me, talk to me, daniel. so it is over years. that's good. his muscles, minimal plan where government she gently on. wow. to miss please. what is supposed to be the only don't get to your government in the news iran cases like this is where ok, we need to demolishes police what we need to find it police or me to move even in moving to people, there is no sustainable plump henry henry, okay, what was the time i was gonna post a list of all of his cues, this trust me and he has gotta go get, you know, and thought, i'm not doing this cuz it all here while ago. but again, you see, you see a committee like this is, is, is similar to the court area where we had last night with the project, lance lance, we again from the see from to what's asked why can begin this land from this water? and i handed over back to the people and i give them access to the sea when they come fish, because it's not goldman piracy is because the power to that we're getting for them
7:42 am
said under the for the on good. pick up the big names in danger already already 5 bit below. now that the comfortable spend your wealth in the lifetime and did a community existing like this. so, so let the good kind of wanted to hello to heaven for that. and yet fortune, what jesse area was gonna say something, or if you want change, there is consequences for change or you got to me. so it's not like nearby i am defending the government or whatsoever. if they're going to develop these ready, please, it is not sonton of to yes. because this place is what are lot. are you getting resort? is something i would take years. i just am time i listen to it depends on the kind of dilemma luc enough's. are we talking about diploma in the sense that you want to demolish if they're looking at us, if they're gonna develop the very place it's has to got done because there's not to for you told in or better yet. okay, so i'm sorry we have to wrap up and so i'm a got to ask for solutions. i need to know what the ne julian government can do, what african government can do to close the gap between the rich and the poor.
7:43 am
let's hear from you daniel. we need to festival, the government needs to calm down into this, please, and make them feel loved 1st, they need to be in part. definitely when you talk about the people from this place, the only perceived them to be treats kids to cause vow list of course news as and these things aren't intentional. so for the government to see change for the government to see our progress, the need to bring this people into the system. fantastic. daniel, let's hear from you. okay, so i think going to show some search commitments. make sure people you at the moment is levy before them. the resources that are meant for them, please let it gets or do make them feel like they belong to the larger society. okay. henry, you said something earlier about the richest man, not being able to spend his wealth in a lifetime, but should he give it up the god mentioned with deliberate about it. god bless you, the instrument of tax to redistribute that kind of resources. yeah. such data, the chorus of person can actually have access to the the most basic of facilities
7:44 am
and amenities. what, okay, for me, do you have any ideas of what we can do to end? well, see the quality, the government needs to stop listening to people from community such as the us up stop listening to just while you see spots well, most likely never stepped out into this community. so coming to such as this should be listened to. half the all me since, and get to with them. why i good with them i using to them, you know exactly what feeds for between each community. okay. thank you. to our panelists, who have braved the board to come here who have braved the weather to stay. and as i speak to us, and also i have to take the crew to day falls when during the same until you our day of us. thank you for watching i'm interested to know what the legal state government is actually doing for the people of michael. that is why i'll be watching a longer version of this debate on our youtube channel. you can also do the same. what we have just seen in mccorkle is by no means isolated,
7:45 am
and it's happening in several african countries. but perhaps this problem is much more visible in south africa. this is where the world's richest person ellen mosque was born. many of africa billionaires live in that country. the 77 percent takes you to the impoverished ta shifts of sweat all. and the mansions in upper class there been, we show you how young people navigate this deeply divided society where social class and race are the most defining factor of once future. south africa is one of the most unequal societies of black middle class. however, it's katie, lead rising in the past 30 years for 1000000 black south african household left dia, poverty for a life of wealth and comfort not known before. in the city of dublin, we met one of the lucky few who made it ah, hello, my name is boise way. yeah. welcome to my home. you 2 months ago because he moved

7:49 am
ah. so i feel like this will never. and unless done years back to we'll start seeing ourselves as people who can, who also mean something out there because i feel like most of the people we feel like we don't value ourselves that much. i over the years, the situation is sort of like a house improved, but still big gaps remain all around a continent. the government's own continent appear to be undertaken policies that fee by the rich. so sometimes it needs to be reminded of its duty to its less privileged population. and that is what seems to kimani is screwed up into goose ascii is widely known and gulf leaves a brand of comedy canyons love his success on social media and tv has helped him bear break more comment boundaries and focuses assures, and skiffs on social issues affecting kenyans yeah. c
