Democratic Republic of Congo: A Francophone Summit too Focused on the Protection of the French Language ?

 Sékou Diabate reacts on his Facebook page about the end of the fourteenth edition of the Francophone Summit, which was held from October 12th to 14th in Kinshasa. He writes:
‎So how about this great Francophone Summit in Kinsasha, where millions and millions [of Euros] were spent while people are drowning in misery? It appears its main purpose would have been to develop strategies to protect the French language? I mean, seriously ? I love the French language (as much as the next language) but not enough to put it above mine .. “
