The political brief

Emmanuel Macron engages with Africa’s youth

Emmanuel Macron says his country no longer has an Africa policy and has faced a mix of applause and hostility while in Burkina Faso on his first official tour in Africa as France’s president. We also speak to RFI’s Philip Turle who tells us about France’s weak opposition forces. Finally, the Bank of France rules that the far-right National Front party, whose accounts were shut by the Société Générale banking group, hasn’t been discriminated against.
