African football legends Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o rebuke two French doctors who theorised that COVID-19 vaccines should be tested on Africans first.

Drogba described the suggestion as taking ‘African people as human guinea pigs,’ and clarified that ‘Africa isn’t a testing lab’.

Also, one of the greatest world footballers, Cameroon all-time record goals-scorer, Samuel Eto’o called the doctors “murderers”.

The 1 April clip from French TV channel LCI featuring Dr Jean-Paul Mira and Dr Camille Locht has since gone viral on social media.


In the clip Dr Mira, from Cochin hospital in Paris, suggests that a medical trial for a COVID-19 vaccine should be carried out in Africa as it had been done in studies relating to Aids.
