Flora Coquerel in Benin, “overtaken” by the events : “This is a shame…”

Currently in Benin before going to promote his documentary, Wax In The City in Abidjan (Côte d’ivoire), Flora Coquerel is said to be “overwhelmed” by the events…

In fact, our Miss France 2014 à Cotonou (the capital of the country), Sunday 28 April 2019, when the government decided to cut off access to the internet and close the borders for 24 hours in the margins of the general elections. Elections in which the opposition parties have not been allowed to stand…

In the Face of this alarming situation, Flora Coquerel – 25 years of age, whose mother is beninese – took out the word on Instagram as soon as she was able to find a connection. “Friends, let’s talk little but speak well. Frankly, to cut off internet to the entire population of benin for 24 hours, really all the world, and beyond social networks, do not have access to e-mails, international calls, I have not been able to call my mother, she didn’t know how were going to his daughters… And in addition to that, the borders were closed so all is beyond me. Frankly, Benin, a small country copy as it has always been, getting to it is distressing. Prevent people to communicate, no that is too much, it’s beyond me. How can you do that ? We didn’t even know what was going to happen. If there is a trick, you can’t even call since it just wouldn’t do. Benin, really, don’t step back. I’m overwhelmed, “commented the ex-beauty queen, who is very committed, particularly through its association Kelina, for the education and health of young people.
