African Presidents have been spotted in a bus being conveyed to the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
Photos of the Presidents and the bus have raised a huge concern on social media, as some persons tagged it racism, while others revisited the colonisation story.
Social media users exuded anger as US president Joe Biden and other leaders like France’s Emmanuel Macron and Canada’s Justin Trudeau were reportedly conveyed in luxurious bulletproof cars with security.
The segregation between these Presidents has encapsulated mixed feelings on social media.
South African outspoken critic, Ntsiki Mazwai said, “One day can we talk about the day African leaders embarrassed us and went to an event they were not really welcome at and arrived in City to City busses.”
“African Presidents” trends on social media as people poured out their thoughts about the event.

African Presidents who want to go mourn the great Queen of Britain have been told to fly commercial planes. No private jets. And will use buses upon landing. Only G7 leaders will use private jets and cars will pick them up. Those who were colonized been told to know their place.
