 Sékou Diabate [1] 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 [2]:
‎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 .. “
