There is some debate about the appropriate scope of Francophone Africa. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_regions_of_Africa and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_where_French_is_an_official_language
The suggested definition, posed for discussion, is a relatively narrow one:
Francophone Africa is the supraregion consisting of those countries in Africa where French is both a widely-spoken language and an official language, where the country was a former colony of France or Belgium, and where the educational infrastructure is or until recently was organised along "French" lines.
This leads to the following list:
- Burkina Faso
- Central African Republic
- Côte d'Ivoire
- Equatorial Guinea
- Republic of the Congo
Many such lists would include Rwanda - but French and the French approach to organisation is now much less relevant to Rwanda in the light of its recent history.
