In an attempt to deny France and imperial powers’ contribution to African’s underdevelopment, French President Emmanuel Macron has accused Africa of having a civilization problem which has compounded the continent’s development challenges:
As a response to an Ivorian journalist who wanted to know from the President of France contribution to the breaking-down and rebuilding of the African continent, Macron opined: “With a family that has seven, eight children in Africa, invest billions, nothing will change. The challenge of Africa is civilizational.”
And the Guinean sociologist Amadou Douno, a professor at the Ahmadou-Dieng University of Conakry, answers him thus;

“Africans do not need your debauchery civilization. Because with your civilization: a man can sleep with a man; a woman can sleep with a woman; a single president can have two mistresses at a time; a woman can sleep with her dog; a child can insult his father and mother without problem; a child can imprison his parents. ”
“With your civilization, when parents are getting older, they are taken to the retirement home, and finally, with your civilization, a young man can live with a woman who is his mother’s age or his grandma without problem. Your case is a perfect illustration! Africans have no civilization lesson to receive from people like you!
Africa is by far the richest continent in the world with its enormous mineral wealth. What is delaying this continent is the large-scale pillage of its resources by the great powers, France in the lead! ”
“All the misery of Africa comes from this country that realizes its ambitions on the backs of Africans, with the complicity of these traitors who do not hesitate to sacrifice entire generations by delivering their countries to the former colonizing power.
They entrust all the key sectors of their economies to France. In reality, they lead the political strategy or vision desired by the former settler. This contributes to driving their populations into misery and extreme poverty. This is the cause of coups d’état, civil wars, genocides, famines, with despots at the head of these countries that are kept in power by France, because it meets all their requirements! ”
“France is nothing without Africa! The day the African countries turn their backs on France, this country will plunge into chaos! As long as African countries do not abandon this domination of the former colonial power, by taking charge of their own destiny, as the Asian countries have done, it will be very difficult for them to get out of the abyss.
The challenge for Africa is to get rid of France. Because the latter is not the solution to its underdevelopment, it is at the heart of the problem! ”
