“Africa will never be independent. Africans believe in Europeans, Americans and Chinese more than themselves–they don’t trust themselves at all.

A white man will commit crime in Africa but no action will be taken because Africa authorities view us as semi-gods, far from the truth. A blackman can be abducted in Europe, get harrassed or even killed but no African authority will question. Africans present themselves as weak people with no hope especially when dealing with Europeans and Americans.

They are their own enemies. They hate each other and that gives their colonial masters power to continue exploiting African resources. ”

“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?” ~Putin Asks!

  1. I agree with President Putin analysis of African leadership. Yes Africa cannot develop because money for developing the continent is siphoned out.
    This reminds me of professor Mubanga Kashoki’s book; ‘An African Scholar.’ he said some thing similar to this only that it concerns intellectuals. His view was that an African Scholar can be the best at any given university in the world but cannot create or invent anything. Reason-give him a good job, wife, house, money and car that marks the end of intellectualism.
    Africans those with resources should wake up from their slumber and develop the continent.

  2. So Iwe Putin, where do you want Africans to buried? For your information, we have also mutated to to burying Chinese people. Give us so credit we are doing better!

    • You do not understand the intellectual sense behind his comments. What he is sayn is true and is the very reason why Africa has remained behind in development despite possessing huge resources. All we care about is nice job, good wife, sex, food and entertainment. We contribute nothing to industrial and technological development.

      • And them stealing and putting sanctions and colonise other countries???? how is that evil from the one of Africa, they are rich because they took what do not belong to them and use free labours to build their empires? if it was a fellow African President saying that it would be with good intent and motives, but now that its coming from them. it feels like an insult instead of advice.

        • At last someone with common sense
          Who does not know this anyway?
          The old racist assumption that Africans need a white man to tell them what to do. Why does the West not talk about their own corruption there is plenty of it in their countries and how they continue to meddle in Africa to maintain White supremacy

        • It will take more than an insult to make us wake up from our eternal slumber. I wish he could backup his statement with proposing sanctions against countries that accept money from criminals.

    • Dont be a lier,say the truth and be free,anyone that tells you truth love you just as Putin did,they just want ur to wake the whole continent is weeping

    • I agree with u, developing country do shit to Africa and goes free including Russia but to set one thing clear Africans are not stupid we just trying to make the most of our lives, Putin has travel almost all countries n u still gonna get buried in Russia

  3. The truth is indefensible. It will always stand out. Africans have no solidarity and national pride. As soon as leaders are elected into power, they look else where for their salvation. Instead of all African leaders uniting to become a powerful economic hub, Africans are busy making ten commandments to kill each other supported by imperialist forces. I agree with Putin. Africans should start taking heed of the truth and start moving forward. What a disgrace that all that African nations do is enrich the wise West .

  4. painful as it may be.Putin is correct.We africans and our leaderdhip will never change our bad attitudes towards work and development.we foolishly think outsiders are there to bring develpment.unless we develop our African countriea nithing will ever change.

  5. What Vladin is saying here is why is it that us Africans use our motherland only for our dead bodies? Instead of developing it we opt to take our money to Europe. We can’t even buy hospital equipment for our countries intead we opt to be treated from Europe. We have Victoria Falls but Zambians people go to watch london bridge.

  6. It is bitter to read to what putin allegedly said, we even want to hate him for what he said. But we have to be angry about the truth about ourselves not on Putin. I wish this qoute was coming from one of the presidents of Africa on the AU summit just ended yesterday. it could have shaked the chairs on which all presidents sitting. It could have been a headline in every news outlets all over africa rocking the continent’s capitals. By the way Tony Blair visiting legos in 2002 have even characterised africa in the worest way, he said ‘Africa is a scar in the conscience of the world’ what do we have to say about it. Only lough about it may be. Unfortunatly many of the rich guys in Africa are corrupt & that chases them away from their home. But we have examplery rich African sports men & women who are living in Africa , investing in Africa and of course die and buried in Africa. The problem is not being rich but how. Corruption is the main headache which is indirectly orchestrated by europeans.

  8. The rich people are badly persecuted in Zambia by their own government because the govt wants every rich person to support it even when it is clearly dictatorial.
    In Zambia, no rich person can belong to the opposition and enjoy life. Most of those who have money but do not support govt opt to invest outside the country as the case is with Roman Abramovitch. Since when did Russia become a beacon of peace and a model of democracy? Putin must know that a person does not need a prescription from another person to tell him how to enjoy his riches.

  9. As long as the environment for Africans to invest safely within Africa is not addressed, most Africans will invest and spend their resources outside the continent. Currently the environment to invest is more conducive to foreign investors of all shapes and shades.

    • Agree but please decode the point correctly. what Putin is saying is the condition in which we are are self made. Only Africans can change tht, not anyone else. Talk of selfish political environment, all in our control!

  10. what is saying na be true……but if an African invent something do u think it will sold in Europe, USA,China or even developing a software who is going to buy it…..everything comes from Europe USA China the only way to develop its to ban some of this technology and let Africa develop their own even in Zambia the government can’t give Zambia engineers to design a road!!!!how do we develop they luck confidence in our engineers we can’t even do a reach on malaria or any diseases we are waiting for WHO to do it or EUROPE USA CHINA HIV/AIDS cure its there, here in Africa particular Zambia but will wait for Europe to break the record government doesn’t supported such things in Zambia we have never mad any think that has been used in the world until now we are consumers……ban imports and let competition grow in Zambia among manufacturer and designers……

    • I so agree with you..But you MUST BAN major imports.kick out the French and Chinese..Who was the first man to create ALL the medicine and science..it was you AFRICANS.DID YOU NOT FORGET YOUR GREATEST? ..Overthrow bad governments.run them out..lock up bad people..Tear down all Chinese business if the governments won’t remove them.Who lets a nation come in and teach Mandin in your schools? Or tells you Africians can’t come in their restaurant after 5 pm..It should be burnt to the ground..yes I said it

  11. As an African and a Revolutionary, I don’t feel insulted by Mr Putin’s words because he is telling the truth. He is a man of action. Most our Leaders are just there to bask in the glory of being called “Excellencies”. When there is nothing “excellent” in what they do for Africa. They stay in Power for too long in order to enrich themselves and their cronies. No wonder Mr Trump calls us “Shit hole Countries”

    • you are totally right ! the thing is, if our country provides us what we need ,and if we were well developed we wouldn’t go abroad looking Medical treatment or whatever … Unfortunately There are those who care for their country and there are those who care for themselves.

  12. Putin is just a racist, the buildings and the wealth we see in Russia and the rest of Europe comes from Africa African wealth, it is deliberate for white people to make sure that blacks does not get right type of education .

  13. I cannot support what Putin has said yet he is in support of them, supporting dictators so that they keep doing the same mistakes over and over again as he and his European counterparts are benefiting, of course it is not right us as Africans to do what he mentioned about , but all this is set by the so called Super powers to set fertile grounds for their exploitation of Africa, If they come up with preventive harsh measures of stopping graft, and the cancerous corruption by imposing heavy sanctions on dictators and their ministers who do what he mentioned, then ….he could bring sense… I personally cannot support his comments because I will be stupid to support what he supports in disguise

  14. Look, no need for those long articles.
    You do not need them to explain a straight forward point.

    Take away, better listen and learn from HIM

    Good and full marks Mr President

  15. It is stranger to hear this from Mr Putin who has investments in USA and not in The Russia to condemn African Leaders when he is in the forefront investing in further Western countries. Mr Putin and African Leaders are just in the same shoe. In 2008 presidential election was won by Dmitry Medvedev, who appointed Putin as Prime Minister, the beginning of what some opponents considered to be a period of “tandemocracy”. In September 2011, after presidential terms were extended from four to six years, Putin announced he would seek a third term as president. Mr. Putin is an African Leader who should just join AU and leave EU for Europeans.

  16. President Putin is right, he has put it that way because of the way African leaders are behaving.When God created Africa, it was beautiful. Now Africa has become a laughing stock because of our leaders.

  17. Is the truth, but maybe before they open their mouth, and talk all sort of rubbish about Africa, they must figured out the root cause of that. Not to forget how Mugabe wanted to change Africa colonialism, they were the first to put a ban on Zimbabwe, we need each other to grow. we cannot grow alone, Russia is busy fishing in Namibia for free, isn’t that colonialism too. we could use those fish to grow Namibia, I am just saying.

  18. Sometimes we should to learn to listen and digest important points before we castigate someone. The president is telling the truth. African leaders should wake up.

  19. True, Putin. Though he hasn’t said the reason, which is that most of the wealth accrued by rich Afrikans will be ill-gotten. Therefore the West and tax havens simply become places to hide or stash that same stolen money. after hiding the cash, then greed or ubupondo sets in. They then wouldn’t want to share it with the people they have stolen it from. The good thing though is that that kind of wealth often has a short span.

  20. This is painful reality, may be the next generations will do the opposite, this calls for patriotism, knowledge economy investment and love for country.

  21. When did he say this? At what venue? There’s zero attribution to this news account, yet everyone is weighing in on it. Will somebody please attest to the veracity of this story. It’s all over social media yet I’ve seen nothing that substantiates it!

  22. Dont be a lier,say the truth and be free,anyone that tells you truth love you just as Putin did,they just want ur to wake the whole continent is weeping

  23. It’s really unfortunate,putin u are right my dear.anyone that tells you truth about yourself love u.and want you to change.so much negative words have been said about africa.but still no one want to listen.confirming the cemetery status.we trouble this nations every day.bc we can’t. Even feed ourselves,china has since started to use their dead bodies to prepare corn beef and hot sending it to africa .who will blame them,so so sorry

  24. Comment:the biggest problem with us Africans is that we don’t see potential in our continent.we have all we need in our continent we see investors coming consuming our resources when we are asleep.let us wake up Africans why do we invest in already developed continents allowing the same continents we are investing in to call us a Cemetery let us show them our ability by developing our beautiful Continent..

  25. Comment:well I even feel bad and ashamed as an African but Putin is right and I support him, the fact is African leaders must wake up and work together through the AU mainly to develop Africa as a continent because we Africans are tired of always being talked about ,

  26. Comment:this z very right I agree with him. Africa z behind development bcoz people in here are just more concern with their personal live but not country development that’s y they do prefer studying and working abroad just in oder to change their lives and life pertains leaving their country behind.

  27. Disappointing, disparaging comments coming from Putin who one admired until now for out-flanking Anglo-America each time and saying it like it is to the USA in particular regarding it’s double standards and hypocrisy in “ridding the world of terrorism ” while being the greatest purveyor of world terrorism; in “spreading democracy ” while hypocritically using it’s CIA to remove well-meaning African leaders intent on ridding it and other non-African countries of corruption,underdevelopment and imperialism. On removing these ssme leaders the USA/UK replace him with a dictator who does their bidding to benefit them, so much for democracy! Wasn’t it the West that murdered Gadafi the leader of the African nation with the best economy and living standards-one of the best in the world? Wasnt it the West that got Sahara of Burkina Faso killed and put in a stooge? And the list goes on. Wasn’t it in Russia that USA’s bitch Yeltsin was owned and used to drain the Russian economy and make people fight in the streets for food seeking evasive rations? Russia had to make do with propagating, among other things, the idea of prostitution to make do internationally? It is only through Putin that Russia is at least back from the brink. And who says Africa is a cemetery? Despite the West’s pillage of this rich continent (by among other things, causing and perpetuating the Rwandan/DR Congo crisis for them to gain the deposits of Coltan while leaving poverty and chaos in their wake), the fact is people as supposedly well informed and bright as Putin are however ignorant as to the true nature of things outside of their chosen sphere of influence and knowledge. He seems to know geopolitics pretty well but is fantabulosly ignorant/illiterate about Africa….and this is partly by design. A racialist is always guilty about this whereas racists know the truth and yet perpetuate pogroms regardless as they choose to live in denial. He needs to be educated about the fact that part of the reason it seems to be as “underdeveloped ” is because he has never visited it and relies on mainstream media jaundiced images. Also anytime the continent rose up to embark on mammoth development projects (as it has already attained great feats of infrastructural and economic development) Anglo-America used wars and threat of wars through regime change to “shock ” them back into apparent stagnation. This is the same Russia that Germany and the West for much of the few past centuries described as rapacious and inferior Caucasians. Is Russia not a dying country and a smouldering cemetery with among the highest mortality rates in the world with the average Russian consuming enough vodka and other liquor a day to fuel a a diesel-powered freight train. Everyone knows Russian drinking habits so I suggest he look into this problem of his country if he is this nationalistic, though still sadly ignorant as he is and seek a cure to his greatest illness, being diarrhoea of the mouth

  28. i think we should listen and reason what mr putin have said, that man is far better then 100 african leaders, he has make rusian proud of there country,bean respected by America Europe they are even afraid of him, he not like the former prisdent the drunken man,
    Let us ask our self after tomas is there any african we should be proude of ? in this century.all there children are in U:S. Europe canada,China,mr prisedent is right and if we have a mna like him we will not be alking about what he say, we should be ashame of our leaders and our educated elites. shame on on us,
    mr prisdent my God bless you long life and good health, i only wish i was a rusain i would be very proud of him, but yet am so much proud of him.

  29. Putin is correct, most African Presidents and promiment African people go to France, UK, China, US for medical treatment instead of improving their local medical facilities. We Africans need to introspect. This is the second G8 leader showing a concern.

  30. Russian president Vladimir, you’ve make a truth comments on Africans. It’s might look insourtiful for anyone who can really think deep, or be part of those who has cost africa sir this, This comment is the truth of Africa position as at today. We’re in cemetery land.

  31. I don’t want to step on anybody’s toes, although it is hard to put into words, I must admit that President Putins’ message was a prophecy to Africans.
    I can help Africans to comprehend better.
    The Western now have smart weapons, ballistic missile, artificial intelligence devices therefore Africans should ask themselves what will be the usefulness of the machine guns, M16, AK 47……etc. they will be useful in Africa. Africans will kill themselves. Pastors, Fathers, Leaders, Followers put Africa first and also let have regards for international policies. May God help Africa give divine Wisdom to Africans. Amen

  32. Mr.Putin comments are deliberate Political divisive injection to undermine African countries and establish a western democracy is an-oxymoron. Thus – to reroute western african political influence to Russian commonest vision.

    He knows all Africans do not have such attitude except corrupted African leaders . It is true what he said “all Africans would like to be buried in their homeland” but he didn’t say “this is alike Russians” —— African’s do it because they love their Country not because to they want to develop cemeteries.

    Mr. Putin motives are with no doubt— it is intended to stir up controversy rather than bring African together. He inject such ideas as if he is prioritizing and caring for vulnerable or oppressed individuals in Africa —-whereas he is likely to prioritizing values of Russian authority and concept of communism.

    If Africans do not stop acknowledging Eastern or western countries political interference , their political agenda can lead their mind deeper down the rabbit hole of division.

    Africans must be empowered to start creating bridges not followers. African’s must not be intimidated or discoursed by such divisional language.

    Given a choice “Mr. Putin” if you are terminally sick and you need treatment — considering there is any political pressure and access to travel , where would you really go ?? to Russian hospital or American ? — I will leave the answer for you.

  33. he’s totally right ! the thing is, if our country provides us what we need ,and if we were well developed we wouldn’t go abroad looking for medical treatment or whatever … Unfortunately There are those who care for their country and those who care for themselves.

  34. you are totally right ! the thing is, if our country provides us what we need ,and if we were well developed we wouldn’t go abroad looking Medical treatment or whatever … Unfortunately There are those who care for their country and there are those who care for themselves.

  35. No nation was built based on wishful thinking. If we don’t rise up and take our destiny in our hands, these criminals called politicians will never change their ways.

  36. Where u mf’s from? Do some research and you”ll find there are a lot of white folk living in Africa and been living in Africa …and it’s not because of the food! FOH

  37. No wonder they get killed when they are in foreign hospitals because they dont Value theirs, They expect others to have sympathy on them, Life aint like that bro!!!

  38. This statement is true for now, likewise my country Ghana is one of them
    Menzgold company limited one of the fast leading gold company in Ghana have been close down just because of how the CEO of the company was doing good
    And the goverment have been silence on this issue but it was this same government that ask the people to be citizen, this company have giving employment to many citizens of the same country which have reduced unemployment in the country
    Why don’t Africans invest in order countrys and keep there accounts somewhere else.

    Africa leaders

  39. We should not forget the history of the African continent and the causes of those underlying trends With some Africans. The time is coming when the continent shall stand as one and shall indeed be a global contender, second to none as some Africans have in this age and era distinguished themselves on the global scene as personalities of high repute, with intelligence above the ordinary, with love for not only the progress of Africa but the entire planet as was envisaged by JFK, whose message was ..forging a grand global coalition for the freedom of man. To identify with Kennedy’s wisdom, we should subscribe to a united planet in place of demonizing a race, people, nation ,continent or individuals. We share the same destiny, diseases, and inevitability we all die. let’s not be like grasshopper’s fighting each other coz they are all locked up in one bottle forgetting that they need to focus on opening the bottle lid as envisaged a Ugandan man of wisdom. Otherwise the Russian anthem is amazing and indeed exhilarating to hear

  40. Africa does not need advice because when you advice them they take you for granted or think that you also have something to gain from it. but when you insult they there head open. some don’t even mind….We need to wakeup, let develop our country with our resources instead of developing other countries.

  41. The Man is right we depend on America,Europe and China somuch,

    Africa should learn to unite and utilise their resources

  42. Comment:President Putin, You are hundred percent true. That is why Africa a is Sithole, you really talking about Ghana exactly.

  43. Vladimir Putin is not full stupidity, he means what he said.
    No job creation for the upcoming youth in the near future.
    Why like a Ghana, has very thing to make the the great and better the lives of it’s citizens.
    Making no sensible use from the tax payers money and exports revenue.
    The best they would di is to create tribal and political distances among the people.
    They do import tooth pick, safety matches, needles, wool thread, battery, SIM cards, mob, wall brush, etc…
    What a shame!
    I salute Prime Minister Vladimir Putin for the facts of truth.
    Melek Silas, Accra – Ghana.

  44. Comment:
    Your very right Mr.Silas Lobui that ,Mr.Putin is right and he will remain correct untill our African state Leaders change the following.
    1. Education system adapted immidiately after their respective nation independences. Why? The education system purposes during colonial era was different from the education system we Africa needs to day.
    2. Ruling system. We have left our cultural ruling system completely adapting the colonial system and remain copping and pasting every thing. Leaders are left native masters and citizen remain as slaves in their nation’s.
    Mr Silas, not only what you said are happening in Ghana but about 80 percent of African nation’s happening the same, leaders happened to be the last sayers.
    This issue is good if we can make it known to every body in Africa and discuss it for our African continent bright future and dependent leaders of states.
