After Rwanda, South Africa. Emmanuel Macron arrived in Pretoria on May 28. A trip initially planned a year ago, but postponed due to a pandemic.
A visit devoted precisely to the fight against Covid-19 and its impact on a South African economy at half mast. The opportunity to talk about vaccination with his counterpart Cyril Ramaphosa, who is asking for the lifting of patents on vaccines to allow the continent to accelerate the pace. The French president was once again in favor. To talk about it, we welcome Mohamed Diatta, analyst at the Institute for Security Studies (ISS), and Pascal Airault, journalist at L’Opinion and co-author with Antoine Glaser of the book “The African Trap of Macron”, at Fayard editions.
