    Just a couple of questions to Kofi Akosah-Sarpong. Why is it that many African editor here is relatively objective when writing about countries that are not their native countries except you? I have read many of your articles and they generally avoid the positive things and focus on everything negative about other African countries. I really just wrote you off as one of those inexperienced journalists whose errors one may “understand”. I can see here that you have a good educational background. What is your excuse? Is it that you lack the time to really focus on what you write or just the “ethnocentric” or should I say “xenophobic” thing all over again? Please answer without any derogatory comments about my language skills. English is my fourth language, if there is such a thing. I am not African so don’t go there.
