Africa and the scars of French colonialism


On this episode of The Modus Operandi, we analyze the battle for Africa and how the continent is still carrying the weight of France's colonialism. Host Manila Chan spoke with El Hadj Djitteye, President of the Timbuktu Center, about the patchwork of political instability on a continent steeped in a centuries-old French colonial past, and asks if a modern Africa can shake off its history and carve its own pathway to prosperity without the West.
