A controversial proposal by a senior German official that foreign powers acquire land in Africa to curb migration has been rejected by the African Union
Voluntary colonialism: That’s the solution a German ministered has offered to end migration from Africa to Europe, according to TRTWorld.
The proposal calls for foreign powers to acquire land in Africa.
But the AU says “it’s a lazy answer to concerns about migration and “implies that Africa needs to give up sovereignty”.
The suggestion has also sparked a lot of criticism on social media.
