Reuters Agency

President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday sought to make a clean break from his predecessors saying that he came from a generation that would not tell Africans what to do and would focus his efforts on bridging ties between Africa and Europe.

"I am from a generation that doesn't come to tell Africans what to do," Macron said during a speech to university students in the Burkinabe capital Ouagadougou. "I am from a generation for whom Nelson Mandela's (release) is one of the best political memories."
