The look of the former Cameroonian football international Samuel Eto’o on the coronavirus pandemic is just as revealing as his dream for the African continent from which he came. Through an interview with Rfi , he revealed his dream for this continent once the serious health crisis has passed.
Samuel Eto’o is one of the African stars who are best involved in the fight against the new coronavirus. Through his foundation of the same name as him, the former captain of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon leads several aid projects for the poorest populations in Cameroon.
What for him should be remembered long weeks of confinement already passed is that “black, white, red, yellow, our concern was to save our lives. Faced with life, we understand that we all remain the same. “, did he declare. According to him, this glaring reality should serve as a bell to the black continent for a conscientious and determined awakening.
The former N ° 9 of Barça did not stop there. He also revealed what he dreams of on the continent still in a disturbing posture, even about the coronavirus.
“My dream after all this is that this Africa really changes and that we are aware of the luck we have of living in this beautiful continent as rich. In Africa, we have a great story, but I believe that we can do much better without counting on others because, if you look, we are the richest continent, but paradoxically the poorest too, ”he said. -he says.
And to do this, it would be necessary to overcome the natural obstacles that already make it decisive on the continent. “The general interest is the general interest! The interest of our continent must take precedence over everything. We have to create a lot more jobs, give these young people the opportunity to work. I think this is the right thing to do. We must allow Africans who want to invest in our continent to have priority over certain things and to have advantages too, because we were born in this continent and it is normal that we come back and that we have certain advantages in order to be able to invest in our continent, ”concluded Samuel Eto’o.
