Ali Francis Pabai

Ali is originally from West Africa, where he worked as a school teacher and an examiner of English in The Gambia for four years after his university graduation in Sierra Leone.

He then worked as a print media journalist on The Gambia’s Daily Observer 2000 -2004. He won the Harry Brittain Fellowship Award for Commonwealth journalists in 2004 and did a six-week training course in the UK in May that same year. He later returned to The Gambia but following the severe clamp down on journalists by the Yahya Jammeh administration he fled to the UK where he now works both in the health sector and in radio as presenter since 2010 of a fortnightly programme, African Forum, at BCB since 2010.

The African Forum brings you news, views and interviews with people of minority background from all over the world, who now live in Yorkshire. It educates and entertains listeners about the pressing needs and concerns of migrants and the communities they live in.
