African Dream: Cameroon's Crecy Tawah

Crecy Tawah is a retired career diplomat from Cameroon, but instead of enjoying this time of leisure, he decided to embark on a second career.

Using locally sourced materials, he builds low-cost, western style, gated communities for Cameroonians in the diaspora eager to come back home.

Mr Tawah told BBC Africa's Randy Joe Sa'ah how his African Dream began.
