Elda Coma represented Burkina Faso at the Montpellier Summit yesterday. His speech was very noticeable. We give you an extract.
“The vocabulary is irrelevant, outdated, and discredited, which is still in your and your company’s speeches when you address Africa or raise funds for Africa. Among these expressions: Development Assistance.
Mr. President, help, even if it does not help, it will not lead to giving up help, as Sankara says, we must get rid of it. This kind of help makes you an addict. It prevents people from doing it themselves because they can do it Mr. President they need to know it. Whatever the origin of your origin (…) in Africa for almost a century, it is with each and every one of us: it does not work.
If the relationship between Africa and France is a pot, know that this pot is very dirty. It is tainted by mild recognition, atrocities committed, corruption, lack of transparency and vocabulary defamation. Mr. Chairman, I invite you to search for it by decisive action. If you refuse to squeeze, I will not eat, we will not eat, Africa will not eat anymore. The food will be ready and you will only be at the table with a hard appetite.
The 28th edition of the France-Africa Summit is taking place without the leaders of the continent. The French President has decided to give a new touch to this event which will explore the relations between France and Africa. This year, the continent’s youth are attracting attention. An opportunity for these “representatives” of the continent to tell their truths to the French President.
In a rather soft structure, the ambassadors of Africa and its immigrants did not notice their host in the direction of the hair. For example, Adam challenged President Macron’s desire to seek the savior of Diko Mali. “We are in Mali to help Mali. I want to tell you that if it were not for Africans, France would not be here today. We are bound. Stop saying that you came to help us. Terrorism is not only a threat to Mali. You are also a threat! Stop blaming us as victims,” said Malian activist Started, appreciated by the audience.
Upon hearing that, the French President replied: “I do not blame you. I am trying to restore the mutual conversation. We are not there for our benefit.”
A few minutes ago, the French president was reminded that “what is happening in Sahal is the result of what was done in Libya.” Without going four ways, Emmanuel Macron acknowledges France’s role in the stability of Libya. “What you said about Libya, I have said many times as president. We do not respect the sovereignty of a people, it is a mistake,” he admits.
As she spoke, Elka Coma, a Burkina Faso businessman, did not ease the tension. For her, the time to act as the Savior of the continent is over. “If we are to live together, it will be interdependent and respectful,” he stressed. Sometimes the hilarity of the room and the outspoken speech of the French president who shares the speaker’s “semantic interpretation”. “I’m not talking about helping. I do not think we are going to create one or create a continent,” said Emmanuel Macron, who was shocked by the intervention of Senegal activist Zach Fall.
The founder of Africa called on the French President to “make strong resolutions and strong resolutions here to recognize and accept the apology from the African continent. “I call on you to stop cooperating with these dictatorial presidents in Africa. I call on you to stop this patriarchal fake activity; Plan a gradual and permanent withdrawal from your military bases in Africa …
“It is not true that we forget the past and its wounds. We have to infer them.
Although they narrated the truth to their host, the young Africans invited to this summit were subject to criticism on the internet. Voices of hostility heard say it was a meeting that would further subjugate Africa. For the pro-summit, it is an opportunity to express in person what they think about Franco-African cooperation.
