I was not at the conference venue in Addis Ababa during the AU Summit, but I have been told by multiple sources that the President of Mali ended his impassioned remarks with the words….wait for it….“Vive la France”.

The attached image neatly captures my reaction, as well as that of many Africans who think “Vive le Mali” might have been a better way to end his speech.
