The president of Russia, Vladimir Putin has once again taken a swipe at Africans.
Putin was quoted by a popular blog as saying that the continent is just a burial ground for Africans as they make all their investments, education and more outside the country but are buried in Africa when they die.
He said, “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 die, he will be buried in his native country of Africa.
Africa is just a cemetery for Africans. How could a cemetery be developed?”
