Barely three weeks after independence on 28th September, 1958, Guinea Conakry’s Sekou Toure, rejected France’s conditional independence. For the daring Toure, ” It is better to be poor and free, than to live in opulence and be a slave“. The result was French vexation, manifested through the withdrawal of all Financial, economic and technical assistance to the country. French Infrastructural installations were even removed in offices and streets of Guinea. It was a lesson, for the other French colonies not to try to buck France’s dictum.Till date, that loyalty has remained intact, with France changing constitutions and organizing elections for leaders they want in the continent.

When the African Union’s Ambassador to the United States, Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao, was fired for standing up against France’s exploitation of Africa, on 7 October, 2019, the French-controlled African Union like France in Guinea ensured her positive footprints in the organization were deleted. “They have undone everything I did for the African Union”, the unrepentant advocate says. ” They took out my arts work, they shut down the radio station, shut down the Facebook and social media accounts”, Dr. Arikana told well-wishers at her farewell message in Washington DC, this week. The true PanAfricanist was firm, that France cannot be allowed to bully Africa into handing over their wealth to her. This is not even stealing, for a thief is scared of the owner. France is simply bullying these countries into surrendering their wealth Dr. Arikana states. She pledges to gather more than a million signatures to confront the UN and Human Rights organizations to ensure this colonial pact with France is severed. France it should be noted rules the African Union through Francophonie puppets who take care of her interest. Click here to read more about France’s rule over the AU.
