Russian President Vladimir Putin has once again given Africans a reality check after he was quoted saying that the continent was like a graveyard for its people.
According to a viral post, Putin is alleged to have heavily questioned the ways of the common African man.
“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 of Africa.
Africa is just a cemetery for Africans. How can a cemetery be developed?”
Putin’s remarks have had Africans all over the continent talking, with some taking it as positive criticism while others felt it was a personal attack from the tough Russian President.
Below are some of the reactions the alleged comment from Putin is causing among Africans.
