French President Macron has blamed Africa’s problems on its civilization. He also complained of the millions of Euros France spends trying to ‘stabillize’ Africa.
Speaking at the G20 summit in Hamburg, he said;
“The challenges in Africa are totally different… It is civilisational. What are the problems in Africa? The failed states, the complex democratic transition, the demographic transition…”
Not done, Macron
went on to say that another challenge Africa faces is its increasing population, stating that Africa had a ratio of 7-8 children per woman.
His comments have drawn critisism online from people who say that is the kind of speech they would have expected from a far right politician but not from Macron.
