In a speech in Algeria, Macron called colonization "a crime against humanity".

Whether world leaders condemn their colonial pasts or have something valid to say about the present state of Africa, their sympathies seem superficial.

I agree that it is up to Africans to create effective ways to develop their nations. Sadly, many African countries have been mutilated to such an extent that it has created a chasm that makes collective discipline seem like a pipe dream. But it will have to be achieved one way or another.
