Nathalie Yamb

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nathalie Yamb is a Cameroonian-Swiss activist and businesswoman.[1] She is well-known for opposing the actions of France in Africa, which her and others describe as colonial.[2] She was born in Switzerland and grew up in Cameroon, then went to university in Germany.[3] In the 2010s, she helped run a political party in Ivory Coast.[1] However, she was deported in 2019 without a trial after she criticized the Ivory Coast government at a conference in Russia.[2] Her anti-French activism earned her in January 2022 a ban on entry and stay on French territory, made public in October 2022.[4]
