The host continues: “But it can excite him!” “Yes, it can turn him on.

I do not know if this is a drone hunt, I do not know. But honestly, I do not have a word to qualify it. But I think it’s completely out of place. We hope that the High Authority for Audiovisual Communication, at least for once in Côte d’Ivoire, will be able to speak out and strongly condemn acts that are directly outrageous and degrading to Ivorian women. ”
