Muammar Gaddafi from power has been a tragedy for Libyans.

Politics and Society Britain’s new Foreign Secretary on Africa: “The problem is not that we were once in charge, but that we are not in charge any more”

Boris Johnson, the former Mayor of London and Britain’s newly appointed Foreign Secretary, is a master of offence, particularly when it comes to Africa. Johnson has previously referred to black people as “piccaninnies” and said they have “watermelon smiles”. That’s not all, he also once suggested that Africa would have been better off if it were still under colonial control and thinks former colonial powers should stop feeling guilty for their past wrongs on Africa. This is the man Britain has appointed to engage with Africa and the world. He’s probably not a racist but he’s certainly racist adjacent.
