Münster: Merkel sees responsibility for Africa because of colonialism

Chancellor Angela Merkel once again stressed responsibility of Germany and Europe for Africa. It is not just a question of preventing future refugee movements, Merkel said at DemKatholikentag in Münster. A responsibility would have dieEuropäer "because we have done a lot of damage with colonialism for decades undJahrhunderte re." Africa has been prevented from taking responsibility for all generations of authorwishes countries. "After centuries of DerFremdbestimmung, as if at a push of a button, Plötzlichalle entrepreneurs should become and reign super and do everything very well," Merkel said. "There are long-term Schädenentstanden."

Germany also has a responsibility. As an organizer of DerBerliner conference 1884/85, country had, among or things, participated in arbitrary border drawing on African continent. Merkel had, among or things, expressed herself at her speech in Davos in January 2018 and at a meeting with refugee workers last year.

They want to invest in education and infrastructure in particular. Germany has already agreed on investment partnerships with Ivory Coast, Ghana and Tunisia under Compact initiative.

For example, she wanted to finance a expressway between Nairobi and Mombasa, or dams in sourn Africa. The initiative also wanted to network urban centres and to better tap through traffic routes, electricity, drinking water, ports and airports. "In principle, this is also good, re are incredible shortcomings," says Kappel, "but poverty is rural in Africa."
