Russian President Vladmir Putin has described Africa as a “Cemetery” and said that as a result, the resource rich continent will never develop while the rest of the world becomes advanced.
In his exact words. the Russian strong man and popular leader said:
“Africa is a Cemetery for Africans. When an African becomes rich, his bank accounts are in Switzerland. He travels to France for Medical treatment. He invests in Germany. He buys from Dubai. He consumes Chinese. He prays in Rome or Mecca. His children study in Europe. He travels to Canada, USA, Europe for tourism. If he dies, he will be buried in his native country in Africa. Africa is just a cemetery for Africans. How could a cemetery be Developed?”
Vladmir Putin’s analysis of Africa, its leaders and the African mentality struck raw nerves with many people taking to social media to accuse him of racism.
But also thousands of people including many Africans on social praised Putin for his straight talk and said that what he said was just the bitter truth.
His analysis comes after it was revealed that former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is in Singapore for medical treatment. Nigeria’s President Muhamud Buhari also travels regularly to London, UK for treatment. All Africa’s leaders and elites travel to Europe, USA, Canada, Asia for treatment as the hospitals back in their own countries rot and health systems collapse.
