Le_Monument_de_la_Renaissance_africaine

When Africa’s tallest statue was completed in Senegal six years ago, there were some critics who thought it was rather extravagant.

The 49 metre African Renaissance Monument is said to have cost the country some $27m (£19m), which many said should have been spent elsewhere.

But many tourists find the city’s landmark very attractive.

Editors note: It has been reported that the income and jobs created by this monument has easily surpassed the investment.

Below watch the video. The filming and audio could have been of better quality. However, the content is stunningly informative.
