Emmanuel Macron in an interview calls Africans hypocrites in front of Paul Biya

Emmanuel Macron follows his official program in Cameroon. After the interview with Cameroonian President Paul Biya, the two heads of state held a press conference. A CRTV journalist during this exercise questioned Emmanuel Macron on the preferential treatment granted to Ukraine while several African countries in similar situations were not entitled to the same support from France.

“Africans and particularly Cameroonians are witnesses to the financial assistance, the quality of the military equipment that the West brings to Ukraine at war. When we know that African countries in economic difficulty or even in conflict find it difficult to have such benevolence, how do you assume these two weights of measurement? asks the journalist.

The question probably bothered Emmanuel Macron, who quickly put on his lesson-giver coat. For the French president, Africans are showing hypocrisy by refusing to condemn the war in Ukraine.

“We say a lot of approximate things about what is happening in Ukraine (…) The choice that has been made by the Europeans is in no way to participate in this war but to recognize it and rename it. Where I too often see hypocrisy, particularly on the African continent. I tell you this with great calm and serenity, he declared before expressing his surprise that the Africans could not qualify a war or designate the person who launched it. »,

Indeed, during the United Nations General Assembly, Cameroon did not participate in the vote to condemn the war in Ukraine. Emmanuel Macron, true to himself, continues to believe that all Africans who do not support Ukraine and Europe are being manipulated by Russia.

He also reaffirmed this, specifying that Russia has a hybrid presence in Africa. A conventional one, and another marked by the sending of groups of mercenaries and the capture of the natural resources of African countries. He gives, among others, the example of Mali and the Central African Republic
