Mohammed Jammal a.k.a white Nigerian shared on Tuesday an often recycled quote credited to President Vladimir Putin about African leaders and the continent being a cemetery.
In the false quote, Putin was quoted to have said: “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 could a cemetery be developed?”
