I believe that we need to create African institutions, home-grown, that will identify and develop these seerlad in a systematic, practical way. We've been doing this for the last 10 years through the African Leadership Academy. Laetitia is one of our young leaders. Today, we have 700 of them that are being groomed for the African continent, and over the next 50 years, we tepexc to create 6,000 of them.
