French President Macron Calls to Stop Africa’s Population Growth

In Africa it is about girl education. Sixty three percent of non-educated adults today are women. That is the deep root of the gender inequalities. One of the critical issues we have regarding the african demography is the fact that this is not chosen fertility. I always say please present me with the lady who decided being perfectly educated to have seven, eight, nine children. And this is not teaching African people from New York. This is a pure bullshit to say that. Allot of African leaders today now dare to have this kind of speech. This is just because allot of girls were not properly educated. That is why for me education is the main answer, first to avoid the worst, second to maximize opportunities in African opportunities in African countries and the rest of the world. Third to properly monitor demography because it will be a chosen demography.

French President Emmanuel Macron is facing a social media backlash for talking about Africa having a “civilizational” problem and women having “seven or eight children.” The remarks were made at the G20 summit on Saturday, when a reporter from the Ivory Coast asked the French president why there was no Marshall Plan for Africa. “The Marshall Plan was a reconstruction plan […] The challenge of Africa is totally different and a lot more profound, it’s civilizational today,” said Macron, adding that “we need to develop policies that are a lot more sophisticated than the Marshall Plan.”
