He is aware of the debate in parts of the political spectrum about immigration. One nurse out there will be looking after 1000 patients with no fresh gloves. It’s that easy to get any sort of infection out there. My ultimate dream is to build a hospital.” He knows how much Burundi has suffered. I have to look for a brighter day, a brighter future. I'm trying to be a better person each day that goes by. I've had to adapt massively.” On Oct 22, Berahino was stopped for speeding on the M6 in Cheshire, breathalysed, and found to be over the limit. My faith each day becomes stronger because I feel more safe around him. “Tony Pulis has made me more aware of certain situations, not just in football but in life as well. He’s improved the other side of my game, dropping back, just being a team player more, and by telling me that it takes more than just talent to get to the top. “It annoys me but I understand the other side: people who were born here, who might feel they haven’t had the opportunity I’ve had.’’ Yet it was a young refugee’s application of his sporting gifts that turned a chance into a career. I appreciate what this country has done for me and my family. I still live at home with my mother and sister but we've moved into a bigger house. Now, Julienne is at her Louisville home on leave from work, resting as her mother Therese helps her care for her three-week-old baby boy, Ezra.
The Arusha Accords, aimed at resolving Rwanda’s civil war, took a year to hash out: the Arusha Peace and Reconciliation Agreement for Burundi (the document CNARED accuses the current government of trashing) took two years.  In the case of South Sudan, where a peace agreement was signed in Arusha last year and then promptly torn up by both sides, who knows? But alongside the backpackers in sandals and bush camouflage – though rarely literally – are the men and women in power suits representing the other face of Arusha, that of a regional diplomatic hub.  It’s the headquarters of the EAC, hosts the African Court on Human and Peoples'' Rights, the UN’s Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals, and until two years ago, was home to the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, trying those implicated in the 1994 genocide.

I trust the people who’ve been there when I’ve been up and down in life. Every day they put their work in, they want me to succeed. The result didn’t go our way (a 3-2 defeat) but the fans were brilliant and it showed the love of the club for Jeff Astle.” Away from some awkward headlines, Berahino is revealing his altruistic side.
"People keep telling me it’s not the right time yet to come back. They don’t want anything to happen to me especially now with the elections coming up, and riots going on back home. Everyone here gives me 100%, from the kitchen staff when they are making the food, giving me a nice dinner, to the coaches outside who always want me to learn more.
