The Africa Report - - LETTERS - Lu­cien Kouassi Pres­i­dent, As­so­ci­a­tion of Ivo­rians in New York (A.I.N.Y.), via Face­book

We all saw what hap­pened af­ter the shoot­ing at the of­fices of the Char­lie Hebdo mag­a­zine in France: al­most all of Africa’s lead­ers trav­elled to Paris to unan­i­mously de­nounce the at­tacks. I have yet to see African lead­ers voic­ing such unan­i­mous sup­port for the Kenyan au­thor­i­ties over the re­cent vi­o­lence in Kenya [‘#Iam­garissa,’ TAR70 May 2015]. Fur­ther­more, I have yet to see Africans de­nounc­ing such in­hu­man be­hav­iour through so­cial me­dia. Could it be that African lives are less valu­able than any other hu­man be­ing on planet Earth? I hope not.
