The minister of Public Health will drill people on family planning on Thursday in Yaounde during a press outing.

This move comes just a few days after young French President Macron pointed out that one of Africa’s problems was uncontrolled birth.

President Macron had declared during the G20 Summit in Germany last week that one couldn’t talk of helping Africa when a single woman was having seven or eight children.


Macron’s statement has received widespread criticism from across Africa. Some people believe that Macron has no lesson to give Africans. He is married to his ‘grandmother’, some people say. This is unacceptable in Africa, they continue.

Macron’s wife is more than two decades older than him.

Africa is a developing continent. Birth control remains a problem. Some families still have as many as ten or more children, with a meagre income that can barely sustain everyone.

It’s part of Africa’s culture to measure wealth or strength on the number of children.

However, as Western culture tends to overlap African culture, most families have learned to embrace family planning. This is very common in urban areas, where most men have abandoned polygamy.
