Boris Johnson on Africa in quotes

Boris Johnson, who has just been appointed as the UK's new foreign secretary, has said several controversial things about Africa during his time as a journalist.

He has defended the history of colonialism, saying that it would be best if African countries were still colonised, and has also used language to describe black people which many consider racist - for which he has apologised.

Here is a selection of some of the quotes.
