The around the world may think; slavery although

The contemporary doesn’t mean the
archaic exist no more – and Slavery is simply saying ”I have come to stay.”
That sounds like a bragging right but until we do something about it, this may
just be the fate of many in times to come as is the fate of many at this very
moment.

Slavery has been more of a curse
than blessing, it shaped centuries from time immemorial to this present age,
and it surely will do it again. Humanity is at the tipping point between
freedom and servitude and slavery has just been given a different a push and it
has vowed to stay. To go back a bit to where it began, it was practically brutish
and men owned men like properties – another era saw slavery come in a different
package. Feudalism it is, a period of Serfdom where Serfs (almost equal to
Slaves) were at the mercy of their Lords, and after a while came Capitalism
where labour is been exchange for wages. To me this sounds fair as anyone could
get to the peak of the pyramid – the peak is that large enough to accommodate.

Regardless of what many around
the world may think; slavery although presently illegal all over the world and
(criminalized in Mauritania not until 2007) has found its way back into the
society – it simply never left but transfigured into what many now tag as
Modern Slavery, it operates in several ways but not limited to bonded labour or
debt bondage, chattel slavery, forced labour etc. With recent increase in the
number of illegal emigration modern slavery has found its way into supply chain
networks, giving some industries or firms the opportunity to exploit and take
undue advantage of helpless men, women and children who had supposedly fled their
home country in search of greener pastures and mostly from refuge as a result
of terrorist activities back home.

According to the Global Slavery
Index report of 2016, an estimated number of 45.8 Million people find
themselves in the chains of modern slavery globally, while 58 per cent of those
living in slavery are in countries like India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh,
Uzbekistan etc, North Korea, Uzbekistan, Cambodia, India and Qatar have the
highest proportion of their population in modern slavery and virtually all this
affected individuals constitute the slaves in supply chain activities today.
