A former slave who was released from bondage in 2008 is to stand in September’s parliamentary elections.
Habi Mint Rabah hopes to be elected as an MP for the recently formed IRA/Sawab coalition – which is comprised of IRA-Mauritania and the more established Sawab party.

“I always thought, without really understanding, that it was normal.”
