The Beninese-born French activist Kémi Séba, who currently resides in Cotonou, the capital of Benin, launched a €10,000 grant to decolonize street names in Africa.
It is through a video published on May 30, 2020 that pan-Africanism Kémi Séba is addressed to all people of the continent. During this press conference, the president of the NGO Urgence Panafricanistes launched a campaign to DECOLONIZE the streets bearing the surname of people who had participated in colonialism or French neocolonialism according to him.
“A grant of 10,000 euros will be awarded on 5 August, to the person or group of people who have unpacked the largest number of streets (or institutes) with colonial names. This grant should strictly be used to set up a business, benefiting the advance of Africa,” he said.
