The massive earthquake which struck Haiti last week is just the latest disaster to befall the Caribbean nation. Battered and bruised from both natural and political turmoil, once again Haitians will have to rebuild their lives.

But one man believes it is time for a radical solution. Senegal’s President Abdoulaye Wade has suggested a resettlement plan somewhere in Africa.

President of Senegal, Abdoulaye Wade explained to Euronews: “Take the case of Liberia, the Afro-Americans were transplanted there. Today those people are successfully integrated with the other African peoples, because they’re of African origin anyway, and they had originally been sent to the America’s against their will. So, it’s not really so extraordinary to transplant those who want, to find a piece of land somewhere in Africa, and, with the help of the international community, to create a city, and perhaps a whole country.”

A spokesperson for the president also told Euronews that if a region was found in Senegal, it would be in a fertile part of the country, although nothing official has been said about the costs of such a plan.
